MTN to Disconnect Globacom Customers over 15 Years of Interconnect Debt in Nigeria

By Frank Eleanya

Globacom network subscribers will not be able to make calls to MTN lines from Wednesday 17 January until the Nigerian-owned operator settles the interconnect fees debt it owes.

According to sources close to the matter, the interconnect charges which started over 15 years ago have now accumulated into billions of naira which MTN and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) can no longer ignore.
