The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has reported that telecommunication consumers in the country spent N3.33 trillion on calls, data, SMS, and other telecom services in 2022.

The telecom industry regulatory commission gave these figures in its newly released ‘2022 Subscriber/Network Data Annual Report.’

According to the commission, the total number of active voice subscriptions increased from 195,463,898 in 2021 to 222,571,568 as of December 2022, representing 13.86% year-on-year increase.

The NCC attributed the increase in the telecom operators’ subscriber base to a number of reasons, which include subscriber loyalty, promos, seasonal effects, aggressive consumer acquisition drive, and competitive product offerings across all the networks.

The commission noted that the growth in active subscriptions impacted positively on other derived telecom indicators such as teledensity, Internet penetration as well as broadband penetration while data usage increased by 46.77 per cent to 518,381.78TB as of the end of the year.

It further clarified: “There was an increase in the volume of data consumed at the year-end December 2022 when compared with the year-end December 2021.

“The total volume of data consumed by subscribers increased to 518,381.78TB as of December 2022 from 353,118.89TB as of December 2021. This represents an increase of 46.77 per cent in data consumption within the period”, the NCC added.
