Nigerian SIM reg ‘successful’
Nigeria’s SIM registration exercise, conducted last year, was a success, says the NCC.
The Director of Public Affairs of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Tony Ojobo, says the percentage of connected SIM cards registered in the exercise is 79.59%.
However, data cleaning is still taking place so the final outcome of the exercise has not been released yet.
According to the most recent figures released by the NCC, Nigeria has 116.439 million mobile (GSM) 13.064 million mobile (CDMA) and 2.31 million fixed/wireless lines for a total of 131.822 million connected lines. Over 96.6 million of them are active.
Total teledensity as of February was 69.01%.
