According to fresh data released by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Airtel experienced a rise from 24,847,567 subscribers, last December, to 26,194,336 in February. That is 21% of the Nigerian Mobile Operator market share, making Airtel the second largest network ahead of Globacom, which experienced a 6% drop from 25,933,867 to 24,490,650 subscribers since December.

The biggest winners of the remaining lot are Etisalat with close to 6% increase in subscriber market share. MTN saw a meagre 1% increase but of course retains its position as the number one network with nearly 60 million subscribers.

Airtel’s new position is probably not coming as a surprise to most – the figures are not available, but quite a lot of subscribers obtained Airtel SIMs solely for the cheap BIS data.
