MTN to Disconnect Glo Lines Due to Non-settlement of Interconnection Charges

Date:

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has granted partial approval to MTN Nigeria Communications Plc to disconnect Globacom as it has failed to settle interconnect charges. NCC’s Director of Public Affairs, Dr Reuben Muoka, disclosed this in a public notice in Abuja.

Mouka recalled that Globacom was notified of the application made by MTN and was given the opportunity to comment and state its case but did not. He stated that the partial approval for disconnection of Globacom to MTN was in accordance with Section 100 of NCC Act, 2003.

According to Mouka, the decision also goes with Paragraph 9 of the guidelines on procedure for granting approval to Disconnect Telecommunications Operators, 2012.

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

“Please note that this disconnection will subsist until otherwise determined by the commission,”Mouka added.
