Nigeria's Communications Authority Orders MTN To Reduce Prices
Nigeria's Communications Authority Orders MTN To Reduce Prices

While MTN is losing many customers to rival networks in South Africa due to insane pricing on Blackberry plan, Nigerian communications authority has ordered that the cell phone network company should charge MTN user’s the same price whether they are calling each other or other networks.

 

 According o news24, Nigerian communications regulator MTN has 44% of the mobile phone market in Africa's second biggest economy and charges its customers three times more to call rival operators than for calls between MTN users, the Nigerian Communications Commission said.

"This is indicative of the likely establishment of a calling club for MTN subscribers," NCC said in a statement on its website.

"The tariff for on-net (calling MTN users) and off-net (calling other operators) will be the same, and subject to periodic review," the regulator said. It said changes would apply from May 1.

MTN did not immediately respond to a request for comment. It operates in 22 countries in Africa and the Middle East.

The change will probably provide benefit MTN's main rivals; Nigeria's Globacom, Indian-owned Bharti Airtel and Abu Dhabi-based Emirates Telecommunications, better known as Etisalat.

MTN's well-established Nigeria network earned it $2.5bn in core profit in 2010 and again in 2011, making Africa's most populous country by far its most lucrative market.

 

It’s a bou time somebody cut these cats down to size.
