There was a man, he promised us CHANGE, they voted for CHANGE without a second thought nor asking what TYPE OF CHANGE it was? Well, we’re in it together and here is yet another bad news as NCC mandates all telcos providers to increase data price from Dec 1st, 2016.
Months ago, a GSM tax bill was rumoured to be introduced, followed by an initiative by the CBN Governor to place tax on call above 3 minutes as an avenue to generate revenue for Nigerian government.
According to source, NCC believes that this is one of the ways they can generate revenues for the Government since they know that we can’t do without buying data. Hence, decided to mandate all Telcos to increase their data price.
What happened to other sectors of the economy? Why are the hurting the youths by placing tax and mandating increase data charges?
If you still don’t get me… Here’s he deal, starting from December 1, 2016… data charges will increase as claimed. Let’s assume you normally subscribe 3GB for N1000, it will be reduced to 500MB for the same amount.
This isn’t just rumour, users of MTN may call 181 self-help service number to listen to this announcement which will take effect from 1st of December.
Honestly, this isn’t fair but… Let’s see what the day unfolds.
