NCC lifts suspension of regulatory services to MTN

Wednesday 16 March 2016 | 10:03 CET | News
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has lifted its suspension of services to MTN. NCC suspended its regulatory services to MTN in October 2015 when the company was fined USD 5.2 billion for failing to disconnect just over 5 million unregistered SIM cards. The NCC said the restoration of its services will enable MTN Nigeria to pursue the necessary approvals for new tariff plans and promotions, as well as other regulatory matters.
