You guys have regularly complained that the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) isn’t doing enough as a watchdog over the telecoms industry. Well, NCC is finally showing that its bite is worse than its bark.
NCC had in the recent past warned mobile network operators about the need to improve QoS on their services or face fines. In line with this, all four GSM networks have been issued fines to the cumulative tune of N1.17b for poor quality of service on their networks. The brokendown figures are:
– MTN: N360m
– Airtel: N270m
– Glo: N180m
The fines are to be paid up by May 21 or an extra N2.5m daily will accrue for each defaulting operator.
