NCC confirms agreement between Glo and MTN on interconnect fees

CITIZENS COMPASS —The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) on Thursday, January 18, 2024, confirmed that telecommunications operators, MTN and Globacom have reached an agreement to resolve interconnect debt issues between them.

The Director of Public Affairs of the commission, Reuben Muoka, announced this in a statement. 

It reads, “In granting the approval, the Commission was deeply conscious of the potential impacts of the decision on consumers and therefore continued to engage both parties to facilitate a resolution which prioritizes and protects consumer interest and the seamless operation of the national telecoms network,” NCC said.
With the development, Glo subscribers will not be barred from making calls to MTN, and neither will MTN subscribers have any issues calling Glo network as earlier announced by the telecommunications industry regulator last week.

While the notice from NCC last week had stated that Glo was owing MTN interconnect fees, industry sources later confirmed that Glo had actually paid off the debt in question.
