NCC verifies the agreement between Glo and MTN on interconnect fees

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) officially confirms the resolution of the interconnect debt issue between telecom giants MTN and Globacom. This confirmation comes through a statement by the Director of Public Affairs of the commission, Reuben Muoka.

Dr. Aminu Maida, Vice-Chairman, NCC.

The Commission, in granting approval for the resolution, expressed awareness of the potential impact on consumers. It emphasized its ongoing engagement with both parties to ensure a resolution that prioritizes and safeguards consumer interests, as well as the seamless operation of the national telecoms network, as stated by NCC.

As a result of this development, subscribers of Glo will not face restrictions in making calls to MTN, and vice versa. This announcement counters the earlier notice from the telecommunications industry regulator last week, which had suggested potential disruptions due to alleged interconnect fee debts owed by Glo to MTN.

However, industry sources later confirmed that Glo had indeed settled the interconnect fees in question, easing concerns over potential service disruptions.
