The Nigerian Communication Commission has said that number portability in the telecoms industry will not only drive competition among telecoms operators, but will also increase value-added services across network.

According to the Director, Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Mr. Tony Ojobo, the process would ginger competition among telecoms operators because they would not want to lose their customers to another network, since number portability gives subscribers the option of migrating from one network to another at will, while in search of better service quality. 'Apart from competition, which will bring healthy rivalry among operators, they will also be forced to introduce value-added services that will attract customers to their networks, and also retain existing subscribers.
