The Nigerian Communications Commission has temporarily suspended issuance of new communication licences in three categories namely Interconnect Exchange Licence, Mobile Virtual Network Operator Licence and Value Added Service Aggregator Licence.

The commission in a statement on Friday by Reuben Muoka, Director, Public Affairs, said the decision was taken in line with  its powers under the Nigerian Communications Act (NCA) 2003 to grant and renew licences, promote fair competition and develop the Communications Industry.

The NCC said the temporary suspension was necessary to enable the Commission to conduct a thorough review of several key areas within these categories, including the current level of competition, market saturation and current market dynamics.
