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 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.

In order to deepen broadband penetration in the Country, the Board of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) recently approved two additional Infrastructure Company (Infraco) Licences.

The two new Infraco licencees are Zinox Technology Limited for South East and Brinks Integrated Solutions Limited for North East. With this approval, the number of Infracos licenced so far is now four.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) hereby extend the submissions of feedback from stakeholders on the Establishment of Internet Code of Practice (EICP) for three weeks which will end on February 9, 2018.
