The Nigerian Communications NCC has ordered the reversal of the implementation of the newly approved 10% hike in tariff for voice and data services.

The Director, of Public Affairs NCC, Reuben Muoka who made the announcement said even though the tariff increase was due in line with the mandates of the Commission as provided by the Nigerian Communications Act, 2003, and other extant Regulations and Guidelines, the implementation has been halted.

He said that much as there is an increase in the cost of production, the provision of telecom services is still very profitable and the subscribers mustn’t be subjected to a hike in charges.
