Cold calls, SMS: telcos get warning from NCC

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has expressed dissatisfaction with the level of compliance to its ‘direction’ on the activation of Do-Not-Disturb (DND) facility which gives subscribers the freedom to choose the messages they receive.

It lamented that in spite of the direction, it was still inundated with complaints by subscribers of continuing operators’ harassment through unsolicited text messages and cold calls.

Its Director, Public Affairs, Mr. Tony Ojobo, has therefore issued final warning to the telcos on the issue, saying the commission would not hesitate to apply the rules if defiance persisted.

The direction issued to industry operators to activate the 2442 DND Short Code took effect from July, 1 this year.
