Why Does NCC Want to Bar Glo Subscribers from Calling MTN Lines?

Due to unpaid interconnect fees, Globacom customers would soon be unable to make calls to MTN lines.

This was revealed by the Nigerian Communications Commission on Monday in a notice to the public signed by Reuben Muoka, the director of the department of public affairs.

According to the statement, the commission gave its partial consent for Globacom to be cut off from MTN Nigeria Communications Plc.

The notice partly reads, “Globacom was notified of the application made by MTN and was given the opportunity to comment and state its case.

“The Commission, having examined the application and circumstances surrounding the indebtedness, determined that Globacom does not have sufficient or justifiable reason for non-payment of the interconnect charges.”

The NCC revealed that at the expiration of 10 days from the date of this notice, “subscribers of Globacom will no longer be able to make calls to MTN but will be able to receive calls.”

It added, “The partial disconnection, however, will allow in-bound calls to the Globacom network.”
