The National Association of Telecommunications Subscribers (NATCOMS) has called on the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to reduce the cost paid per minute of voice calls.
The President of NATCOMS, Chief Deolu Ogunbanjo made the call during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.
NCC planned a stakeholders’ forum on the determination of mobile voice termination rate for the industry on Feb. 1 in Lagos.
Ogunbanjo said the termination rate should be reduced as this would determine the amount operators would charge subscribers.
He said the industry must appreciate the fact that ‘we need to revisit the services from time to time’.
”We should look at N12 per minutes and NCC should also look at a reduction in the price cap because we have maintained the same price cap since 2001, that is 17 years of N50 per minute,” he said.
