Due to recent instructions from the Nigerian Communication Commission, it is likely that we are about to see decreased data offerings and increased prices.
This instruction was made to companies such as MTN Nigeria, Globacomm Nigeria, Etisalat Nigeria, Airtel Nigeria, Ntel Nigeria, Smile Network Nigeria, Swift Networks and Spectranet.
The scope of this is larger than just the increase of prices, but rather that smaller, independent companies could be forced to charge unfair prices.
This petition is to call for the allowance of companies to set their own, desired prices and for data plans to maintain a fair value for us, the consumers.
Several months ago, the NCC has delayed the proposed increase, but we want to ensure that this doesn’t take effect – and more importantly, that companies continue to be allowed fair price decisions.
