Telcos raise data rates, FG’s Internet target threatened


Two major telecommunications companies in Nigeria, MTN Nigeria Communications Plc and Airtel Nigeria, have increased prices for their internet data services by about 10 per cent.

Both companies confirmed the increase on their separate verified Twitter pages (@AirtelNigeria and @MTN180) in response to inquiries by their customers.

In the Nigerian National Broadband Plan 2020 to 2025, the Federal Government seeks to ensure cheaper data services in the country.

The government plans to achieve N1000 for 1Gb by 2023 and N390 for 1Gb by 2025.

Although this target has been met and surpassed, it is now threatened by the recent hike in data services by MTN and Airtel.
