NCC to award fixed line licences by early 2014

8 Oct 2013

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) will begin the process of awarding regional licences for the provision of fixed line and broadband services towards the end of the year or by early 2014, local newspaper The Punch cites NCC executive vice chairman Eugene Juwah as saying. The regulator is currently dividing the country into separate licence regions, ahead of the launch of the bidding procedure. In October 2012 Juwah stated that the winning bidders of the regional concessions would be those requesting the lowest government subsidies to build the network.
