The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has disclosed that MTN and Globacom have agreed to resolve all outstanding issues within 21 days.
Recall that on January 8, 2024, NCC published a pre-disconnection notice, informing subscribers of the approval granted to MTN Nigeria Communications Plc. (MTN) to commence the phased disconnection of Globacom Limited (Glo) with effect from January 18, 2024 due to long-standing interconnection debt dispute between the parties.
In a press statement, made available to LEADERSHIP, the Commission averred that it was deeply conscious of the potential impacts of the decision on consumers.
This is even as it (NCC) has continued to engage both parties to facilitate a resolution which prioritises and protects consumer interest and the seamless operation of the national telecoms network.
The Commission, however, announced that both parties have now reached an agreement to resolve all outstanding issues between them.
For this reason, and in exercise of its regulatory powers in that regard, the Commission has put the phased disconnection on hold for a period of 21 days from today, 17 January, 2024.
Whilst the Commission expects MTN and Glo to resolve all outstanding issues within the 21-day period, the Commission insisted that interconnect debts must be settled by all operating companies as a necessary component towards compliance with regulatory obligations of all licensees.
“It is obligatory that Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and other licensees in the telecom industry keep to the terms and conditions of their licenses, especially as contained in their interconnection agreements,” the Commission appealed.
