How Are You Preparing For Dec 1 New Data Rates? by ThatIgboBoy: 8:49pm On Nov 29, 2016
It is no longer news to us that from dec 1 the prices of data bundles will increase. This is saddening because we all know how important cheap and affordable data is to our daily lives,buisnesses,relationships,research work and school assignments etc.

The essesnce of this thread is to find out how we have been preparing for this new prices. I have been preparing too. I am not a heavy data user and my favourite network is MTN just because it is reliable. Normally i subscribe the #1000 for 1.5Gb monthly and i use it all month. But with the advent of this new prices,i have been forced to load #5000 airtime and subscribed five times subsequently. If i use my data the way i normally do plus other things i will do to my uc browser like stting my images to low and even putting them off at times,i wont need to sub again till May next year. That is how i have been preparing oo.

So share with us your preparations so that others can learn too and do one or two things. 500mb for #1000 is nonsense

As for me I will subscribe to #500 for 1 gig plan on my Mtn pulse but in a different way. I will load #5000 nd subscribe for a week plan of 1 gig 10 times in a day to exhaust d 5k nd my data will b accumulated nd d expiring date will b extended too meaning at d end I will av like 10gig wit 5k since each gig is #500 nd multiple subscription is allowed in a day.

We don't need to panic because l am certain that the NCC will soon reverse it's decision. When data sales begin to drop the telecommunication companies will start to complain to NCC because they have wages, taxes and contractors to pay. That is the major reason why the companies are giving out bonus and other mouth-watering promos to increase sales. So relax and pretend as if nothing is happening. NCC wants to test our reactions.

Besides,they might not increase the prices of some data plans,just a necessary few;so I presume.

Slight changes and adjustment but that wouldn't stop an internet addict from surfing through the net. Instagram and facebook app might be relegated off. With these guidelines i wonder whether NCC are for us or against us. The other time they forced GSM mobile networks to increase their call tariff in spite of the harsh economy.

Why? Are you truly expecting it to happen?

You see, we just can't stand our ground and say no. We are already feeling defeated.

This is why these people will keep hitting us from every angle until there's no breath left in us.

Because they know the worst you all can do is come online and make a hell of noise and thereafter withdraw into your shells.


In my own opinion, this thread is totally uncalled for. It's not going to happen.

The increase has its advantage and disadvantage here. It will reduce the number of useless threads here. But on the other hand it will reduce patronage in online business.

For me, whether the price is high or low it will not affect my internet usage. I know FG did this as a control measure to Nigeria's internet users who abuse every opportunity available to them. At least people will stop posting useless pictures and comments in nairaland, facebook and other forums.

Person go climb tree snap and post on facebook. Another one go enter toilet snap and post on nairaland. Another one go hang on window snap and post here. Arrant nonsense.
