The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has recently announced that the licensing related to the Mobile Virtual Network Operators is going to be concluded before this year ends.
The commission has introduced MVNOs licences that will generate employment and also bridge the gap between the unserved and the underserved in society. It will also further engender competition and provide choices for telecommunications consumers.
It is therefore imperative for industry stakeholders to collaborate on various efforts that will contribute positivity while continuing to ensure that operations are conducted within the respective telecommunication licenses, and that service challenges and demands are adequately delivered.
The introduction of Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) is believed to add value for both operators and customers; for the operators by using their available excess capacity and for the customers by offering innovative and several niche value-added services that were not offered by Mobile Network Operators (MNOs).Prof Umar Danbatta, Executive Vice Chairman, NCC
