NCC Wants Nigerians To Be Able To Roll Over Data For 14 Days
You know how you must browse and finish your data before it expires? The Nigeria Communications Commission, NCC wants that to end.
The commission wants to extend the grace period of unused data roll over to 14 days.
But the National Association of Telecommunications Subscribers (NATCOMS) has said the 14 days was not enough.
Instead the association has called for an extension of unused data roll over for up to 30 days.
The President of NATCOMS, Chief Deolu Ogunbanjo, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Lagos that it was not enough considering the present economic situation as subscribers were not getting value for their money regarding data usage.
“NCC should give at least 30 days grace instead of 14 days, because of the recent economic situation.
“One may also have pressing needs or competing demands in the family and may not have money to subscribe within the 14 days period,” the NATCOMS president said.
“The grace period for voice recharge is 90 days, hence, data subscription should not be different,” Ogunbajo noted.
NAN also reports that the Executive Vice-Chairman of NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, said that subscribers would be given the 14-day grace, even if they do not renew on the date of data expiration.
Danbatta said that this would stop the present practice where subscribers would lose the entire unused data, if they failed to renew on the date of expiration of the present subscription.
