NCC Calls on Network Providers to Beef Up Infrastructures

In order to improve telecommunication services in all parts (rural and urban) of the country, the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) has directed all network service providers in Nigeria to provide more telecommunication infrastructure. Maryam Bayi, the Commission's Director, Consumer Affairs Bureau, gave the directive yesterday in his address at the 67th edition of Consumer Outreach Programme in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, with the theme: " The effects of telecom infrastructure on human health." Maryam said: "As of today, we have over 132 million connected lines while the teledencity has increased to about 94 per cent." The NCC boss also said: "While the commission recognises that there might be some concerns regarding the effects of these infrastructure it is necessary for network operators to deploy there infrastructure across the country." Maryam went on to fault the claim that radiation from telecommunication masts mounted by GSM operators could be harmful to human beings. The NCC boss described such fears as misplaced, arguing that the masts and towers erected by telecom operators were necessary for continuous telecommunication services across the country and as such shouldn't be believed to cause any harm to humans.
