The issue started last week where there was a partial restriction of calls and text from Glo subscribers to MTN customers. When you try using Glo to call an MTN number, you will get a message from Glo system that says “you are not allowed to call this number”, just because Glo is owing MTN.
MTN line can still call Glo customer, users are partially restricted from calling MTN network because of the current 10 billion interconnection fee. An insider from MTN claims that the network operator is arrogant and they will not attend meetings or respond to notification letters.
On December 2018, NCC gave MTN and Airtel approval to bar Glo and 9mobile customers from calling their network over failure to pay Interconnect Debt.
“NCC is aware and the commission gave approval for the owed companies to partially disconnect service to their network,”
Analysts say that millions more of subscribers will soon face service disruptions over the coming weeks, if other owed operators follow through with partial disconnection, as millions of voice and data pass through the affected exchanges on daily basis.
The commission informed that 9Mobile, Smile, and Swift are also to be disconnected from IHS facilities and ATC Wireless Infrastructure Limited.
