The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) on the 18th Of October released a pre-disconnection notice stating that all subscribers of Glomobile would no longer be able to make outbound calls to Airtel subscribers.

According to the notice as seen on the Commission’s official Twitter handle, they stated that Glomobile has no sufficient reason for non-payment of interconnect charges to Airtel.

Interconnect charges are the fees telecom companies charge when they connect and terminate calls on their networks. Apparently, Glomobile hasn’t been fulfilling the end of their agreement and that’s why NCC has to act.

Here is the pre-disconnection notice:


The Nigerian Communications Commission hereby notifies the general public and subscribers of Glomobile Limited (Glomobile) that approval has been granted for the partial disconnection of Glomobile from Airtel Networks Limited (Airtel) as a result of non-settlement of interconnect charges

Glomobile was notified of the application and was given opportunity to comment and state its case. The Commission having examined the application and circumstances surrounding the indebtedness determined that the affected operator does not have sufficient reason for non-payment of interconnect charges

All subscribers are therefore requested to TAKE NOTICE that

    1. The Commission has approved the Partial Disconnection of Glomobile by Airtel in accordance with Section 100 of the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 and the Guidelines on Procedure for Granting Approval to Disconnect Telecommunications Operators
    2. At the expiration of 10 days from the date of this notice, subscribers on the network of Glomobile will no longer be able to make calls to Airtel, but will be able to RECEIVE CALLS
    3. The Partial Disconnection however, will allow in-bound calls to the Glomobile network.
