Telecoms Operators Threaten To Shut Down Service In 5 States

Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) has threatened
to suspend services in seven states over closure of their Base Transceiver Stations (BTS).

The Chairman of ALTON, Engr. Gbenga Adebayo on Thursday listed the states as Ogun, Ondo, Akwa Ibom, Ebonyi, Osun and Kaduna.

He stated that arbitrary sites closure without following the Nigeria Communications Commission, (NCC) guidelines and best practices will no longer be tolerated.

Adebayo alleged that some levies and taxes are multiple in nature because most of them are only aimed at the telecoms operators

He said: “We are considering very carefully the situation of site closure and harassment of our members in some of those states and we may begin anytime soon to have them feel the impact of their actions on telecom operators if they do not desist from deliberate disruption of our operations.”
