Text Message Across Networks To Cost N4 – NCC


The NCC announced the�directive�on Thursday.

Any�person�subscribed to any of the�Nigerian�GSM�networks�must not be charged more than N4 for short message service, sms, sent to other�networks, the�NigerianCommunications Commission, NCC , said on Thursday.

The NCC set a price cap of N4 per message for all domestic Off-Net Short Messaging Service, SMS, with effect from February 5.

Josephine Amuwa, the Director, Legal and Regulatory Services of the Commission made this known in a�statement�made available in Lagos.

Ms. Amuwa said that this had been communicated to the�operators�since January 3, adding that it would, however, not place a price cap on�international SMS.

There was a�general�recognition that the cost of SMS is too high, especially in view of the interconnection rate of N1.02 for SMS as determined by the Commission in 2009.

This is a good one from NCC,they should also look into call rates too
