Is NCC Planning to Increase Call Tariff Again?


The Nigerian Communications Commission ( NCC) has commenced
the process of reviewing the subsisting interconnection rates for voice services to bring it in tandem with current market realities.


The Executive Vice Chairman of the commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, said the review had become necessary considering that the Nigerian communications market has witnessed
tremendous growth in both subscriber numbers and traffic volumes.

The scale of changes will inevitably affect the unit cost of providing services including interconnection and may lead to differences between regulated interconnection rates and underlying costs which in turn may result in differences between on-net and off-net retail tariffs.

Whatever the above grammar means, NCC is planning to increase call tariff or what better explanation can be given to the above?
