The Nigerian telecoms regulator, NCC, recently fined the four GSM network operators in the country for poor service quality. The NCC directed the four companies to pay their respective fines not later than May 25 this year or risk fresh rounds of punitive fines pegged at N2.5million per day if they default in meeting the payment deadline.
Shortly after the fines were imposed, the GSM networks issued a joint public response.
As it stands, none of them have paid the fines till date and news reports are that they are seeking to meet with the NCC to talk things over. The operators are also said to be talking to the Minister on Communication for mediation in the face-off.
