Nigeria's Starcomms to merge with Multilinks, MTS: regulator

DUBAI (Reuters) - Three of Nigeria's CDMA mobile operators - Starcomms (STARCOM.LG), Multilinks and MTS - are seeking approval to merge, the Nigerian telecoms regulator said on Monday.

Lolia Emakpore, a director of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), also told Reuters at a conference in Dubai she expects the mobile subscriber base in Nigeria to grow 14 percent next year to 120 million, the fastest pace since the technology arrived a decade ago.
