Telecom operators yesterday renewed their push for end-user tariff hike to reflect the cost of doing business.
The operators, acting under the aegis of Association of Licensed Telecom Companies of Nigeria (ALTON) and Association of Telecom Companies of Nigeria (ATCON) in a joint statement asked for a cost-reflective tariff of services.

They urged the Federal Government to protect telecom infrastructure against willful vandalism and theft.

On infrastructure deficits, ALTON and ATCON said their members still lack access to essential telecommunication services due to a myriad of challenges, including multiple taxation and regulations and prohibitive Right of Way (RoW) charges, inadequate electric power supply and vandalism of telecommunications infrastructure.

The groups sought the protection of assets and network infrastructure and urged the Federal Government for legislation that designates telecommunications infrastructure as Critical National Infrastructure (CNI).
