179,000 subscribers successfully ported


About 179,000 subscribers have successfully ported since the introduction of the Mobile Number Portability scheme in the country, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said.

The scheme, which was introduced in April, last year, is aimed at enabling telecom subscribers choose the networks that can provide them with the most effective services.

NCC’s Director of Public Affairs Tony Ojobo gave the figure at the weekend at the prize-giving ceremony of the agency’s national essay competition, titled: The Effect of Mobile Number Portability on Telecom Service and Usage in Nigeria.

Ojobo said the scheme had deepened competition among service providers and led to innovative services.

The spokesman said the scheme also enthroned the consumer as the king in the marketplace.
