Globacom Limited and MTN Nigeria Communications Plc have settled their debt dispute over interconnect.

    This was revealed by the Nigerian Communications Commission on Thursday in a statement that was approved by Reuben Muoka, the department’s director of public affairs.

    The NCC granted Glo a 21-day grace period in January, during which this development between the two companies took place. Prior to this, 61.54 million mobile subscriptions (as of November 2023) on Glo’s network faced the possibility of being disconnected from making calls to MTN.

    The NCC stated in January that because interconnect fees have not been paid, Glo users may not be able to call MTN lines.

    It said that after a 10-day notice period, its directive might go into force.

    After the first notice period expired, the commission subsequently extended it by an additional 21 days.

    In an effort to resolve the dispute and take into account the intended effect on subscribers, this was done.
