Globacom subscribers might face restrictions in placing calls to MTN lines soon, as announced by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC). This limitation stems from the unresolved interconnect charges between the two telecommunications companies,Daily Trust reports.
The NCC revealed this information in a public notice issued on Monday, signed by Reuben Muoka, the Director of the Public Affairs Department.
According to the notice, the NCC has given partial approval for the disconnection of Globacom from MTN Nigeria Communications Plc. Globacom was informed of MTN’s application and had the opportunity to present its case. After thorough examination, the NCC concluded that Globacom lacks sufficient or justifiable reasons for failing to settle the interconnect charges.
The NCC specified that after 10 days from the date of the notice, Globacom subscribers will no longer be able to initiate calls to MTN numbers but will still be able to receive calls. The partial disconnection will, however, permit inbound calls to the Globacom network, ensuring a level of connectivity.
