Nigeria could disconnect Zoom Mobile

Must Read

Nigeria’s Zoom Mobile, a CDMA network operator, has been issued with a disconnection notice through the Nigerian Communications Commission for its unpaid debts in interconnection fees to five other mobile operators.


“At the expiration of the 21-day notice, five operators including Airtel Network Limited, Glo Mobile Limited, MTN Nigeria Communications Limited, Multi-Links Communications Limited and Visafone Communications Limited, have been granted regulatory approval to partially disconnect Zoom Mobile off their networks,” the Technology Times in Nigeria wrote.

The disconnection will be a major blow for Zoom, as the other mobile operators control over 95% of Nigeria’s active subscribers. “According to the market information, the five companies controlled an active connection of 80,406,563 lines compared to Zoom Mobile’s 1,043,592 lines within the same period.”

The disconnection notice was issued by the Director of Public Affairs at the NCC, Dave Imoko, who said the “NCC had examined the applications and circumstances surrounding the indebtedness and determined that Zoom Mobile does not have sufficient reason for non-payment of the interconnect charges to the affected operators.”

  1. I am a subscriber to Zoom lines but I have not been able to use the lines in the past two years, as their network is off. I need somebody to tell me where I can register my complaints. As I dont know where to trace them again. They have closed down their known address at Abakaliki
