MTN Nigeria has been reportedly fined a whopping sum of $5.2bn by Nigeria’s Communications Commission (NCC).According to reports the move follows accusations by mobile phone users that the regulator had failed to bring operators to account for poor services to subscribers. MTN Nigeria however says they are studying the letter sent to them and will respond soon.
According to BBC Abuja editor Bashir Sa’ad Abdullahi says some Nigerians say they want the regulator to address poor network signals provided by telecoms companies in the country.
They want more sanctions on firms to encourage them to improve signals and the quality of service in the country, he says. The $5.2bn fine seem to be a huge sum of amount and we expect to hear the MTN Nigeria’s response to this fine.
