NCC: 180 Million Telephone Lines Linked With NIN

Over 180 million telephone lines are now linked with the National Identity Numbers (NIN), the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) Prof Umar Danbatta disclosed on Tuesday.

He said this following the capturing of over 60 million Nigerians by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) in the National Identity Numbers (NIN) database.

Danbatta also said from available statistics, the telecommunications industry has bounced back with broadband penetration peaking at 41 percent while active telephone subscribers have increased by over one million.

He spoke while delivering his address during the Public Inquiry on three Regulatory Instruments on the Rule Making Process at the headquarters of the Commission in Abuja.
