Nigeria’s telecommunication giant, MTN, has decided to increase the prices of internet subscription for consumers as mandated by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

Daily Trust reports that in a broadcast message to its subscribers, MTN declared: “Dear customer, please be informed that from 1st Dec, some MTN data tariffs will be increased to reflect the new rates set by the NCC to operators. Thank you.”

Feelers reaching NAIJ.com show that the new rate beginning from December 1 could see MTN subscribers paying as much as N1000 for 500 megabytes instead of the about 1.5 gigabytes.

There could be changes for other telecom companies in the country in order to meet the reported proposition by Godwin Emefiele, the governor of the Central Bank Governor, for a tax from mobile phine users in the country as part of efforts to meet the economic recession.

Adebayo Shittu, the minister of Communication, had defended the proposed 10 percent tax on phone calls, text messages and data saying it would help enhance telecommunication services in the country.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Shittu spoke in Osogbo, Osun state, saying: “We have a lot of deficiency in the provision of infrastructure in the telecommunication sector.

“And I believe that those who proposed the bill must have thought that government centrally relies on tax because without tax, government cannot operate.

“We are proposing a workshop on the bill for all stakeholders in telecommunication services, operators and even ordinary man.

“I hope that at the appropriate time, when the figures are out, everybody will appreciate the need for such a tax in which at the end of the day will improve services and make everybody happy.

“Everybody is complaining every day over lack of quality and good services, drop calls and all of that.

“All these are caused by deficiency in infrastructure and Nigerians, I believe that we cannot shy away from what will provide government with resources to improve facilities.”
