Sierra Leone's Parliament has summoned executives from the country's four mobile networks to explain reports of poor network quality.
The four companies, Africell, Airtel, Comium and Sierratel are also accused of levying high charges for calls between each others networks.
The move follows a similar summons from the Director of Open Government Initiative last week.
The regulator, Natcom recently imposed a fine of $45,000 on the networks, but is itself being criticized for poor oversight of the industry.
Deputy Director of Sierratel, Edward Sesay told the Concord Times that his company does not offer poor services. Although its network is yet to reach all parts of the country they are working hard to have a nationwide reach.
