Public Notices

The following are the Public Notices issued by the Nigerian Communications Commission. By the publication of these notices in print, broadcast or online, the Commission seeks to inform the public of developments and upcoming actions relating to its activites and the Nigerian telecommunications industry.

The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is an international organisation with headquarters in Los Angeles, United States of America, non-profit corporation that has the responsibility for Internet Protocol (IP) address space allocation, protocol identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-Level Domain Name system management, and root server management functions.

This is to notify the general public that the Commission has extended the submission of application for Value Added Service (VAS) Aggregator License.

The Commission has noted concerns raised by stakeholders on the Value Added Services (VAS) Framework published on its website, and the advertisements on the licensing of VAS Aggregators published in national newspapers in November 2017.

The Nigerian Communications Commission, in exercise of its functions under the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 has published the following Draft regulatory documents for stakeholders’ comments.

Consumer Satisfaction Data Indicate Noticeable Reduction in Masking following NCC’s Actions.

The Nigerian Communications Commission will impose the maximum possible penalties on any of its licensees implicated in the practice of masking of international telephone calls. As such, it is likely that the operating licenses of some of the interconnect exchange and other licensees involved in the practice would either be revoked or suspended in the coming week.  It was gathered that the Commission and senior operatives from the nation’s security services met with representatives of the said licensees at the Commission’s Abuja Offices on Wednesday last week to confront them with some of the evidence at the disposal of the Commission and to give them yet another opportunity to defend themselves.
