The Executive Vice-Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission, Umar Danbatta, on Tuesday disclosed that over 180 million telephone lines are now linked with the National Identity Numbers.

He said this following the capturing of over 60 million Nigerians by the National Identity Management Commission in the National Identity Numbers database.

Danbatta also said from available statistics, the telecommunications industry has bounced back with broadband penetration peaking at 41 percent while active telephone subscribers have increased by over one million.

He spoke while delivering his address during the Public Inquiry on three Regulatory Instruments on the Rule Making Process at the headquarters of the Commission in Abuja.
