As a result, subscribers on the network of Glo will no longer be able to make calls to Airtel but will be able to continue to receive calls.

Globacom was notified of the application and was given opportunity to comment and state its case, according to a statement from the NCC. The commission, having examined the application and circumstances surrounding the indebtedness determined that the affected operator does not have sufficient reason for non-payment of interconnect charges.’ It added that the disconnection will continue until otherwise determined by the NCC.
