Globacom, the grandmaster of data, has added a total of two million new subscribers in Nigeria in the month of September, according to the current ratings released by the Nigerian Communications Communication (NCC).

In the NCC report for September 2019, Globacom increased its customers by a whopping 1,945,846 new subscribers. With this development, the company’s subscriber base rose from 47,265,628 in August to 49,211,474, making it the second-largest customer base in the industry.

Airtel which had hitherto occupied the second position in the industry now has a subscriber base of 48,909,678 at the end of September, after adding 987,787 new customers. This represents half of the number added by Globacom within the period under review. At the end of the preceding month of August, Airtel had 47,921,891.  It is now the third-largest operator in the country behind Globacom.

The NCC statistics showed that it was only Globacom and Airtel that added new subscribers to their networks. Both MTN and 9mobile recorded a decline in active subscriptions for the month.
