The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has introduced a new Mobile Voice International Termination Rate (ITR) that favours Nigerian telecom companies up from $.045 to $.10 with effect from September 1, 2022.

The executive vice chairman of NCC, Professor Umar Danbatta who stated this in a new document titled ‘Determination of Mobile (Voice) International Termination Rate disclosed that the new ITR which replaces the old mobile ITR that was issued by the NCC in November 25, 2021, would enable Nigerian operators receive an increasing rate in Naira when devaluation occurs.

Pundits are already suggesting that the cost of international calls from Nigeria will now ostensibly rise. Elsewhere in the world, de-regularisation of the telecommunications sector has made international call competitively cheaper.
