By Na'ankwat Dariem 


As a result of non settlement of interconnect charges by  Glomobile Limited (Glomobile),the  Nigerian Communications Commission has granted approval for the partial disconnection of Glomobile from Airtel Networks limited (Airtel) .

This is also to notify the general public and subscribers of Glomobile Limited (Glomobile)that  the approval  is in  accordance with Section 10 of the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 and the Guldelines on Procedure for Granting Approval to Disconnect Telecommunications Operators.

According to statement signed by the Director Public Affairs of the Commission, Dr.Henry Nkemadu in Abuja, Glomobile was notified of the application and was given opportunity to comment and make its case.

The Commission having examined the application and circumstances surrounding the indebtedness determined that, the affected operator does not have sufficient reason for non-payment of interconnect charges.

The NCC has also requested Subscribers to take note that,at the expiration  of 10 days from the date of this notice, subscribers on the network of Glomobile will no longer be able to make calls to Airtel but will be able to receive calls.

The Partial Disconnection however, will allow in-bound calls to Glomobile network.

The Commission added that this disconnection will subsist until otherwise determined by the Commission.
