Key components of the year of the telecom consumer include creation of greater awareness on Quality of Service (QoS); Electromagnetic Fields (EMF); Do Not Disturb (DND) which consumers can use to stop unsolicited text messages and; The NCC’s toll free line – 622 through which consumers can reach the Commission in cases where service providers fail to resolve their complaints.
The campaign hopes to secure the support of network operators towards meeting set targets and Key Performance Indicators (KPI) on Quality of Services especially as it affects drop calls.
Only recently, the Commission read the riot act to operators on poor quality of service, especially drop calls and poor network services in general.
The year of Nigerian Telecom Consumer campaign will also witness a new programme tagged “NCC Consumer conservation” which the Commission plans for different locations across the six geopolitical zones.
It will be an interactive session which will provide information empowerment for the consumer.
