Report : NCC is Planning to Increase Call Tariff Again?

Reports have it that Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is about to review subsisting interconnection rates for voice services to bring it to reality with current market realities.


The Executive Vice Chairman of Nigerian Communications Commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, said the review is necessary considering that the Nigerian communications market has witnessed massive growth in both subscriber numbers and traffic volumes.

“The scale of changes will inevitably affect the unit cost of providing services including interconnection and may lead to differences between regulated interconnection rates and underlying costs which in turn may result in differences between on-net and off-net retail tariffs.”

Whatever the sentence above means, NCC is planning to increase call tariff or what better explanation can be given to the above grammer?
