BREAKING: Telecommunications Operators Demand Increase, Writes Nigeria Communication Commission

Bearly two months after writing to the Nigeria Communication Commission, NCC, demanding for tariff adjustment, telecommunication operators, telcos, have insisted that the best way to sustain growth in the telecom sector in this economic headwind is to adjust tariff to reflect operation cost.

They are appealing to the regulator to understand that yielding to their demand will not only arrest the prevalent loss of revenues among the telcos but also steady the sector towards sustaining its appreciable contribution to the growth of gross domestic product, GDP.

The telcos gave their reasons at a special reception hosted by the industry players under the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria, ATCON, in Lagos.
