Senate Orders NCC To Suspend Data Price Increase


The Nigerian Senate has asked the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) to immediately suspend any planned increase in data price.

A directive had been issued by NCC on Tuesday to increased the floor price of data to N0.90k/MB, although Nigeria’s Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, denied knowledge of this.

This directive was to take effect December 1, forcing mobile telecommunications operators to drive up the price of data.

The Senate also invited NCC and service providers to investigate unsolicited messages as well as an increase in the cost of data.
