NITEL faces unbundling

October 22, 2009 • Mobile and Telecoms

president_of_Nigeria2.jpgIF proposals to unbundle Nigeria Telecommunications (Nitel) yield results, at least five new telecommunications companies will come into being in this densely populated African country.
These plans follow suggestions by the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) submitted to the National Council of Privatisation (NCP) for consideration.

The ball is now in NCP’s court, and the telecommunications industry believes that a green light would be crucial to enhancing employment creation, service delivery and competition.

If approved, Nitel would be split into five telecommunications companies, comprising Long Distance Licence, International Licence, Infrastructure (MTel) and DML Licence.
