The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) on Saturday said activities on the Mobile Number Portability (MNP) by telecommunications operators reduced in June to 32,873 from 39,535 in May, showing a decrease of 6,662.

In its ‘Incoming and Outgoing Porting Activities of Mobile Network Operators Report’ posted on its website, the regulatory body said that of the 32,873 porting activities in June, 16,714 were ‘Incoming Porting Activities,’ while 16,159 were ‘Outgoing Porting Activities.’

It said that in the outgoing table, 5,030 subscribers moved from MTN Nigeria to other networks through Mobile Number Portability (MNP) in June.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that those that left MTN’s network decreased by 1,537 as against 6,567 customers that dropped the network in May.

NCC said that 4,531 customers moved from Airtel Nigeria, showing a decrease of 2,009 subscribers against 6,540 that left the service provider in May.

Also, 4,902 subscribers moved from Globacom Nigeria in June, representing an increase of 116 customers that left the network, as against 4,789 that left in May.

It said that 1,696 customers of 9mobile (formerly Etisalat Nigeria) ported to other networks within the same period, a decrease of 130 when compared with 1,826 users that left in May.

In the incoming table, 9mobile led with an additional 12,498 customers joining its network in June.

Airtel Nigeria came second on the gainers’ list with 2,020 subscribers; 1,445 subscribers moved to MTN Nigeria, while Globacom Nigeria got 751 customers.

The report shows that in spite of the loan repayment challenge faced by 9mobile, Nigerian telecommunications users still have confidence in the network, hence moving to its services.

NAN reports that the exercise was flagged off on April 22, 2013 by the NCC with the aim of deepening competition in the industry. (NAN)
