MTN, Glo resolve dispute over interconnect debt

MTN Nigeria Communications Plc and Globacom Limited have resolved the interconnect debt dispute between them.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) confirmed this on Thursday in a statement signed by the Director, Public Affairs Department, Reuben Muoka.

The settlement came within the 21-day grace period the NCC gave Glo in January.

61.54 million mobile subscriptions (as of November 2023) on Glo’s network were at risk of getting disconnected from making calls to MTN before now.

In January, the NCC announced that Glo subscribers might be barred from making calls to MTN lines due to the non-settlement of interconnect charges.

It stated that its directive might take effect at the expiration of a 10-day notice period.

The commission later extended its notice by 21 days after the expiration of the first.

This was for the disputing parties to reach an agreement, considering the intended impact on subscribers.
