The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has announced the partial disconnection of Glomobile from Airtel over unpaid debt.
NCC said, Glomobile was however, notified of the application and was given opportunity to comment and state its case.
A statement by the Director, Public Affairs, NCC, Dr. Henry Nkemadu said, the commission, having examined the application and circumstances surrounding the indebtedness determined that the affected operator does not have sufficient reason for non-payment of interconnect charges.
The statement said, “all subscribers are therefore, requested to Take Note that:
The Commission has approved the Partial Disconnection of Glomobile by Airtel in accordance with Section 100 of the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 and the Guidelines on Procedure for Granting Approval to Disconnect Telecommunications Operators.
“At the expiration of 10 days from the date of this notice, subscribers on the network of Glomobile will no longer be able to make calls to Airtel but will be able to RECEIVE CALLS.
“The Partial Disconnection, however, will allow in-bound calls to the Glomobile network.
“Please note that this disconnection will subsist until otherwise determined by the Commission,” the statement said.
