An official statement from NCC has revealed that The Nigerian Communications Commission recently lifted the data floor price, giving operators liberty to drop their data tariffs as it suits them.
The Commission, in a bid to ensure sustainability, growth and development of the data service market segment, approved the withdrawal of data floor price on October 13, 2015. However, the Commission will restore the floor price if any distortion is observed within the market segment.
If there’s any story that gets even more interesting as it goes, especially one hovering around mouth watering Internet benefits for Nigerians, then here’s one.
The data price floor lift will afford Nigerians more Internet data accessibility, at cheap prices owing to lower tariffs, and the customer focus sensation from mobile network operators.
