The Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) has imposed a N90 million fine on one of the major telecommunication provider, MTN for poor service delivery in the month of December last year.
Mr Tony Ojobo, the Director Public Affairs of the commission, disclosed this to newsmen on Friday in Abuja, while announcing the postponement of planned takeoff of mobile number portability.
According to Ojobo, during the drive test conducted round the country in December by NCC, the network provider failed to meet the standard Key Performance Indices (KPI) set for service providers by the commission.
He said that Etisalat, Globacom and Airtel met the set standard except MTN, saying that the commission had given the service provider up to April 3, to pay up the fine.
On mobile number portability, Ojobo said the service which was earlier scheduled to take off on March 25 had to be put off due to the fact that the equipment were undergoing final testing.
Mobile number portability (MNP) will enable mobile telephone users to retain their mobile telephone numbers when changing from one mobile network operator to another.
