NCC Directs TELCOS to Give 14 Days Grace Period For Data Usage



I was expecting NCC to mandate all network providers  to add more gigs to their data plan while the existing price remain unchanged but What I read on ThisDay is on the contrary and it left me with a big question mark.


First of all, I’ve always heard complain from subscribers that Normal MTN /Airtel/9mobile monthly data plan that supposed to last upto 30 days get exhausted before the end of 14 days. The Zapping is on the high side now and this is what NCC has to say;

“NCC has mandated all network providers to give their subscribers 14 days of grace after the 30 days expiration of their data if they still have data left and cannot recharge to get their data rolled over,”
It means if you are unable to exhaust your normal data in 30 days, you should have extra 14 days to exhaust it before it will be wiped off. This is good news for those who rarely finish their data but bad news for Telcos.

On the contrary, this may only be possible for Glo subscribers because of their snail like network in most places. If you subscribe for 3.2GB for N1000, you may only succeed in using 500MB for a month while the remaining goes to waste bin.

The question is, will Telcos comply or use Carrot and Stick approach? They give you freebies with one hand and use the other hand to suck it dry… Be sincere with yourselves, how many days does it take you to exhaust  3GB of data? How many times do you subscribe in a month?
