Lagos – The Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) says the ban placed on MTN Nigeria’s promotional offers will continue until the leading telecoms company is able to simultaneously advertise its products and offer quality service.
Four telecommunication operators in the country, Airtel, Globacom, Etisalat and MTN were initially banned from offering sales promotion following complaints by subscribers to NCC that the promotions were affecting the network quality of the telecoms service.
After over seven months of enforcement, the NCC has lifted the ban on all telecoms company except MTN.
NCC's Director of Public Affairs, Tony Ojobo said the three service providers reportedly met the regulatory body’s December 2012 Key Performance Indicators.
Ojobo insisted that the ban placed on promotions on MTN was still in force.
“The ban on MTN still remains in force until the KPIs are met. We expect that the networks will all continue to provide good Quality of Service (QoS),” he said.
Ojobo said the ban was introduced after NCC was inundated with complaints from consumers and stakeholders against the various promotions offered by the operators.
