Disconnection Dispute Between MTN, Glo Amicably Resolved – NCC

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said that the interconnect debt dispute between MTN Nigeria Communications Plc. (MTN) and Globacom Limited (Globacom) has been amicably resolved.

NCC’s Director, Public Affairs, Reuben Muoka said this in a statement signed on Thursday.

Following the resolution, the disconnection approval granted to MTN for the disconnection of Globacom has now been withdrawn.

In its initial Public Notice, the Commission with the aim of mitigating any potential disruptions to subscribers undertook further regulatory intervention, by mediating between the parties and facilitating the reconciliation process.

The Commission therefore reiterated that strict adherence to the terms and conditions of licenses, particularly those delineated in interconnection agreements, was imperative for all Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and other licensees within the telecommunications industry.

In order to proactively address and prevent future instances of interconnect indebtedness within the industry, the Commission said that it would be requesting relevant records and regular updates from MNOs, as well as adopting a transparent approach towards industry indebtedness.

This statement serves as a reminder of the Commission’s commitment to fostering a stable and compliant telecommunications ecosystem in Nigeria.
