Nigerian mobile operators MTN, Globacom, Airtel and Etisalat have agreed to pay a N1.17 billion ($7.4m) fine imposed by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) this week, according to a report from Nigerian publication, This Day.

The NCC said that it had fined the country's mobile-phone operators a cumulative 1.17 billion naira in May, for poor network performance.

The report added that the operators demanded, as a precondition for the payment of the fines, a review of the present KPIs, which they argued did not take into consideration the peculiarity of the Nigerian business environment.

The fines were originally due to be paid by May 21 and the operator will likely be charged an additional 2.5 million naira for each day over the deadline, it said.
