The fines imposed by the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) on the four operators of Global System for Communication (GSM) for quality of service breach have reached N1.24 billion even as a meeting called at the instance of the operators failed to make the regulator shift ground. The additional N2.5 million per day has generated N70 million in the last seven days with each day adding N10 million fines. NCC had fined Airtel, MTN, Glo, and Etisalat N270 , N360, N180 and N360 million respectively for failing to meet up with the minimum standard of quality of service (QoS) for the months of March and April 2012, with an additional N2.5 million fine per day after the expiration of the May 25 payment deadline.
