The Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) has fined MTN Nigeria and Globacom Ltd N34 million for breach of the Mobile Number Portability business rules and regulations.

The regulatory body made this known in its “2015 Q4 Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Reports’’ obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria yesterday in Lagos.

NCC said Globacom was fined N22 million, while MTN was fined N12 million.

In the “2015 Q3 Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Reports’’, NCC resolved to monitor and sanction violations of MNP process time obligations and pledged “to address increasing cases of port request rejections’’.

The commission said a series of compliance checks were carried out regarding timer violations by donor operators with respect to “validation and deactivation responses’’, which had timelines of two hours and one hour.

According to the Q3 report, there is a timer deactivation violation by MTN, regarding a Corporate Port request of over 109 lines belonging to Nigerian Breweries Plc.

“The company initiated a corporate port out request from MTN to Glo via lead Mobile Station International Subscriber Directory Number (MSISDN): 07036735494 on August 11, 2015 at 1.20 p.m. but was partially completed as at 11.22 am on August 14, 2015.” (NAN)
