The Senate orders NCC to stop Planned Data Tariff hike Scheduled for December 1

 The planned data tariff increase by NCC scheduled to commence on December 1 has been stopped by the Senate.

 In a series of tweets, the Nigerian Senate has condemned the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) for planning to increase the price of data in the country.

The NCC ordered service providers in the country to increase the data price from Thursday, December 1.

The upper legislative chamber however described the move as the height of irresponsibility and resolved that it should be stopped.

Meanwhile, Communication Minister, Adebayo Shittu has said that the order to increase data price did not come from the Federal Government.
