Senate urges NCC to stop planned Data tariff hike

The Senate has urged Nigeria Communications Commission, NCC, to immediately stop the planned data tariff hike until all parties are consulted.

At Wednesday’s plenary, the senate ordered its committee on Communications¬† to ensure Nigerians are not short changed.

It also mandated the committee to investigate allegations of failure on the part of service providers.

The NCC had directed mobile operators to initiate a new data tariff regime from December the 1st in what is effectively a price increase.
