Total prepaid mobile voice subscriptions increased from 179, 249, 965 in December 2019 to 199, 043, 508 in December 2020, indicating an increase of 11.04 per cent in the period.






Similarly, postpaid mobile voice subscriptions increased from 5,208,832 in December 2019 to 5,450,774 as of December 2020, indicating an increase of 4.64 per cent growth within the period under review.

Postpaid mobile service is provided by a prior arrangement with a mobile network operator. The user in this situation is billed after the fact according to their use of mobile services at the end of each month.

The 2020 Subscriber/Network Data report from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), which contained the statistics, explained that it means about 97.1 per cent of mobile subscribers are prepaid users while only about 2.8 per cent are postpaid subscribers in the country.

The Northwest and Southwest zones recorded the highest number of subscriptions in the zones for telephone services, while the North-East zone recorded the least number of subscriptions due to insecurity in the zone that hampered investment.

The data revealed that 29 per cent of the active subscription is in the Southwest zone, while the Northwest has 19 per cent of the active voice subscription, the Northeast has the least percentage of active voice subscription.
