Glo, NTEL Customers To Be Cut Off From Calling Other Networks In Eight Days by Abiodunspectre(m): 4:07pm On Dec 21, 2018
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has granted disconnection approval to mobile network operators (MNOs) to disconnect owing colleagues over rise in interconnect debt and failure of the affected operators to pay.

A document sighted by The Guardian yesterday, confirmed that the NCC has sent notification letters to the affected operators. NCC has asked MTN, Airtel and IHS to disconnect, on partial basis, services to Globacom, Ntel (MNOs) and interconnect exchange points including Breeze, Exchange, Solid, Medallion and Niconnx.

The implication of this development is that some millions of subscribers would soon start to experience service disruptions. The Guardian checks showed that over 35 million subscribers might be affected if the disconnection move is implemented.

While the affected operators have between the next 10 and 21 days, starting from yesterday to make amends or risk disconnections, Globacom currently has 41.5 million subscribers; Ntel as at March had about 150,000 subscribers, while millions of voice and data passes through the affected exchanges on a daily basis.

NCC disclosed that at the expiration of 21 days, which started yesterday, Airtel and MTN will cease passing and receiving voice and data traffic through Breeze, Exchange, Solid, Medallion and Niconnx respectively, and will thereafter utilize alternative channels in interconnecting with other network service providers.

The ATCON boss, who urged affected subscribers to use the Mobile Number Portability scheme and port to available network, urged NCC to introduce an automated clearing interconnect scheme as suggested by the association this year, saying the current and future debts may have to be written off, if those companies disconnected eventually go into forced bankruptcy.”

I understand NTEL is going through some hard times but will I say they brought this upon themselves? Because before one ventures into a business, one must cross the Ts and dot the Is, have some funds for miscellaneous incase of unforseen circumstances. Can you imagine? Only 150k subscribers since, they really need to partner. Too bad though, I feel for them.

Exactly why this needs to get to front page so more people can see it and be prepared. People traveling to villages where they have only Glo will be mostly affected.

Sai Barbarians!!! Sai Dullard and his team of incompetent buffoons cannot solve this problem without bringing suffering to millions of GLO subscribers. How are the debtors telcos going to raise the money to settle their debts if they don't have any subscribers who are paying for their services?

We all know what GLO's strengths and weaknesses are. We know that quality of service was their weakness while affordability was their strength.

So when that fool AdeBASTARD SHITtu stopped GLO from providing cheap data services it marked the beginning of trouble. It was that cheap data which gave GLO the edge over rivals that attracted millions of subscribers. Now they are suffering because of the incompetence of that idiot.
