CDMA operators lost 2,617 data users in February – NCC


LAGOS – .The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) on Wednesday said that the Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) operators lost 2,617 Internet subscribers in February.

NCC said this in its monthly `Internet Subscriber Data’ made available in Lagos.

The commission disclosed that Multi-Links, Starcomms and Visafone recorded 167,630 data users in February as against 170,247 subscribers in January.

The data, in which Visafone is placed in the first position, showed that the network had 145,263 World Wide Web (WWW) subscribers in February.

It, however, indicated that in the period under review, the company lost 1,555 of the Internet users from the recorded 146,818 subscribers in January.

Starcomms, which retained its second place in February, maintained its 15,859 data customers, which the company had since October 2013.

On its part, Multi-Links recorded 6,508 Internet users in the month under review, losing 1,062 customers from the January figure of 7,570 web users.

The data showed that the CDMA networks in the country were in a dying state and needed to be resuscitated.

The NCC said that there was the need to facilitate robust usage of the Internet by creating local content, since data had been predicted to be the next revolution after voice. (NAN)
