The most recent Mobile Number Portability (MNP) chart released by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) shows 9mobile as gaining the highest ports-in consistently over the past year.
Of the 10,781 numbers that ported between June 2018 and May 2019, 62% moved to 9mobile, with the operator consistently maintaining a double or triple lead in ports-in.
Commenting on 9mobile’s success in this field, their VP of Sales Ken Ogujiofor said: “We recognise that quality data and voice services are important in the day-to-day activities of Nigerians; therefore, we are passionately committed to providing the best services. To ensure optimum quality of service, 9mobile recently completed network upgrade of its 4G LTE in 6 major cities including Port Harcourt, Kano and Lagos and we are still expanding to an additional 15 cities before the end of Q3 2019.”
He added: “in March 2019 we gained an additional 7,297 subscribers who ported to 9mobile from other networks due to our enhanced QoS. This is more than 70% of the porting activities for that month.”
Every month, the NCC monitors and reports on the state of the Nigerian telecommunications industry, providing statistical analyses and identifying industry trends regarding services, tariffs, operators, technology, subscribers, and issues of competition with a view to identifying areas where regulatory intervention is required.
