Lagos - The poor quality of service being witnessed on various telecoms networks across the country has been attributed to excessive rainfall, reports Daily Independent.
Akinwale Goodluck, Corporate Services Executive, MTN Nigeria, noted that no network sets out to provide poor quality of service (QoS) as most service disruptions are caused by challenges beyond the control of service providers.
Goodluck, who was speaking in Lagos at the Telecoms Consumer Parliament orgainsed by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), said strong winds and heavy rainfall in 2014 have resulted in a disruption of service to a large number of subscribers across the country.
He said the closure of Base Transceiver Stations (BTS) of service providers by some state governments in a bid to collect rents and levies also contributed to the poor quality of service being experienced by subscribers.
