NCC hopes unified licensing will bring investment

14 Feb 2006

Nigerian regulator the NCC has announced plans to implement a unified licensing scheme in the first half of this year, which will enable operators to provide fixed line, mobile and internet services under the same concession. It said it hopes that the new regime will promote investment in the market, which in turn will help to develop the infrastructure of Nitel’s fixed line network and reduce pressure on mobile operators.
