The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has announced that the number of active telephone lines in Nigeria has risen above 142 million; 142, 589,775 in February 2015, to be very precise, showing an increase of 1,766,938 lines from the previously recorded 140,275,599 in January 2015.

Of the 142, 589,775 active numbers, the GSM service providers have 140,275,599 against 138, 530,830 in January 2015; while the CDMA operators have 2, 108,960.

Of course, having over 142 million active phone numbers is not the same as having 142 million Nigerian having telephones since most Nigerians have dual SIM phones or simply have, two or three mobile phones. But hey, we are well on the way.
