Nigeria Senate Frowns at Planned Increase in Data Prices From December 1st, Orders Immediate Reversal

The Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has put a stop to the planned increase in data prices, which was suppose to commence from the 1st of December, 2016.

Senator Ibn N’Allah, who is the deputy senate leader, during the plenary session held on Tuesday, brought up a motion on the directive given by the NCC asking all telecommunication Companies to increase the price of data.

Senators who were at the plenary session all agreed in condemning the planned increase of data tariffs by the service providers in tandem with NCC and called for it to be immediately stopped.

The Senate committee on Communications were asked to carry out a serious supervision so as to make sure that Nigerians are carried along in every step in the matter. This is to make sure that the people are not defrauded.

It wuld be recalled that last month, the NCC gave directives to all service providers to increase the price of data subscription to almost a 100% from tomorrow, the 1st of December, 2016.

This may see data prices increase double, like N1,000 for 1.5 gigabytes to cost N3,000 at N1,000 per 500 megabytes.
