The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) disclosed that a major key achievement of some of the policies initiated by it, especially as it relates to local content development, is the ban on the importation of whole-body subscriber identification module (SIM) cards.
Telecommunication operators activated additional 953,192 Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards in February to push active telephone lines in the country to 227 million from 325 million connected lines since the telecoms revolution began in Nigeria.
Telecoms operators activated 3.6 million new Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards in January, which has resulted in active telephone lines in the country moving from 222.5 million in December 2022 to 226 million a month after.
