Telecommunication Companies MTN, Airtel Announce New Rates for Internet Data Plans
Nigerian telecommunication has announced increases in prices for their internet data services by about 10 per cent. The increase was announced by MTN(@MTN180) and Airtel(@AirtelNigeria) on their verified Twitter pages.
Over the years, Nigerians have enjoyed one of the cheapest data rates in Africa, and this has helped boost active internet subscriptions to more than 152 million.
It was reported that the upward revision of data plans would now jeopardize Nigeria’s National Broadband Plan 2020-2025, in which the Federal Government intends to offer cheaper internet services in the country.
