Earlier today, customers received messages from their service providers on a planned increase in price of data tariffs as prescribed by the Nigerian Communications Commisision (NCC).
One of them read: “Dear customer, please be informed that from 1st Dec, some data tariffs will be increased to reflect the new rates set by the NCC to operators. Thank you.”
President Muhammadu Buhari, through The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has ordered all telecommunications service providers to increase the cost of internet data with effect from the December 1.
A call to MTN Customer Care line, 181, confirms this, as an auto responder informs customers clearly on what is to come.
Things keep going from bad to worse under this President Buhari administration and one can only wonder when enough would be enough.
