The Total number of active voice subscriptions in Nigeria telecom services sector has risen to an amazing 169 million, the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has stated.

Executive Vice Chairman of the Commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, gave the figure at a breakfast meeting with editors and Bureau Chiefs of media houses, in Abuja, yesterday.

He also said internet subscription base, as at end of last month, stood at 109 million, up from 107 million in October.

He stated: “As at November 2018, the active voice subscribers’ base grew from 165 million in October 2018 to 169 million.

This is no surprise as the average Nigerian has from 3 to above lines (data, voice and video 😉). This is all in search of cheap tariffs and steady network.
