Following several subscriber complaints over billing irregularities, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has mandated all telecoms operators to provide free instant Short Message Service (SMS) to all phone users detailing the cost of each call and available balances to the subscriber at the end of every call from today (Thursday).

This was made known in a statement by the Head, Media and Public Relations, NCC, Mr. Reuben Muoka. According to the statement, any operator that failed to commence the service to its subscribers would be liable to a fine of N5m and a further N500,000 per day as long as the contravention persisted.

Muoka said, “The commission had in a directive issued since August 2012, mandated that from November 1, 2012, all mobile operators shall send, free of charge, a message or an alert to both post-paid and prepaid subscribers after every call, SMS, or system generated charge or tariff, with a proviso that a subscriber can opt out if he or she so wishes.

“The directive mandates the service providers to send messages containing six critical information including: exact duration of the call minutes and seconds; total cost for each call or SMS; customer accounts balance after the last call for prepaid and SMS; customer account balance after a charge or tariff and the reason for the charge or tariff; cumulative call charges up to the last call within the charging period for post-paid customers; and cost of services and credit balance upon request by customer for data service.”

  1. NCC need to do more work. The fradulent act of some network is becoming unbearable. Imagine MTN telling you to spend 120 to get a bonus of 600, but most people complain that even when they spend over 200 they were not given the bonus. Same thing goes 300 to get 1500, but some spend over 500 yet no bonus. THIS IS REALLY BAD. They can be sued for this.
