Information and Communications Technology, like many other classical innovations has been institutionalized and become myths binding on organizations. How this seditious tool can be used as a catalyst for developing countries, in the face of empirical anomalies has been a cause for concern. Why does increasing number of agencies go on-line and establish similar web presences with similar structures even when delivery to end user is poor or near impossible? What are the processes of adaption to the environment and pressures of legitimacy and service efficiency? Nigeria, like many other developing nations, confronts huge problems relating to information dissemination. Different government organs have made rigorous efforts to improve the penetration rate. How these efforts affect different regions of the country was the subject of this investigation. Accordingly, multi-stage sampling technique was used to access stakeholders’ views from a critical region of Nigeria, using stratified and simple random sampling methods. Key indicators of the results showed that: broadband penetration constitutes a major problem to ICT service delivery{X2 calculated (6.250) was less than X2 tabulated (9.488)}. The impact of Broadband infrastructure as an antidote to improve ICT service delivery indicated X2 calculated (5.185) to be less than X2 tabulated (9.488). The study also arrived at a synergy between speedy broadband growth and technological advancement: X2 calculated (1.559) was less than X2 tabulated (15.507). Evidently, the North Eastern region of Nigeria lacks innovation, capacities and capabilities in broadband network outside few organizations in the capital cities and the financial institutions.
