NCC Declares NITEL, Starcomms, Others Inactive print

Telecommunications Limited (NITEL)  and 13 other telecoms companies in
Nigeria have been declared “inactive operators” by the Nigerian
Communications Commission (NCC).
NCC’s declaration of
NITEL and its mobile business unit, MTEL Limited, as inactive “further
reflects the southward fortunes of the two public-owned telcos, as they
technically no longer contribute to the periodic subscriber information
released by the telecoms regulator.”
Also declared
inactive were other private telcos, such as Disc Communications,
Intercellular Nigeria Limited, and Reliance Telecoms (also known as
Zoom). Starcomms, MTS 1st Communications, WITEL, O’net (Odua Telecom),
Rainbownet Limited, Monarch Communications, XS Broadband, Webcom and
IPNX completed the list.
However, the “Big Four” – MTN
Nigeria, Airtel Nigeria, Globacom and Etisalat – account for 98.12 per
cent of the market compared to 1.74 per cent by the CDMA operators and
0.14 per cent by the fixed lines sectors of the telecoms industry,
contributing 126,958,904 of the total 129,391,392 active phone
connections in the country.
NCC’s figures revealed that
the CDMA mobile sector contributed 2,256,612, while fixed wireless
operators added only 172,876 of the active lines recorded in April 2014.
further breakdown of the figures shows MTN to have 58,355,855, Airtel
25,475,672, Globacom 24,015,713, and Etisalat 19,111,664 – representing
46 per cent, 20 per cent, 19 per cent and 15 per cent respectively of
the market.
