“The service quality has improved because of the stringent measures the NCA has taken to make sure the telcos have the various technologies are employed to deliver proper service to the consumers,” Mr Tervie said.

He said the use of fines as a punitive measure has also worked to enhance service delivery adding “for example, we’ve given fines out to MTN, Vodafone and Airtel for failing to do certain things in some areas.” in providing service to the customers.

“They have certain obligations and if they don’t meet those obligations, it affects the consumer. They [telcos] also have congestion on the network, so we are constantly measuring those kinds of performance issues on the networks.”
The Director General William Tervie said in the coming weeks, months and years, the NCA will continue to impose fines on the telcos to whip them in line in the interest of the consumers.
