Senator, Ben Murray-Bruce has expressed disappointment and sadness over the announcement made by MTN Telecoms, that its data tariff will be increased from December 1, 2016. Bruce has said that he will fight against it at the senate when the issue will be raised. This is because, according to him, Telecoms companies in Nigeria should be directed by NCC to decrease tariff, while NCC should invest in free public wifi for advancement of knowledge in the country.
"I will fight against this data in the Senate. The NCC, as a regulator, should be directing that GSM firms reduce and not increase tariffs!!
In my opinion, rather than direct GSM firms to hike rates, NCC should invest in free public wifi for the advancement of knowledge in Nigeria," he said on social media.
