House Of Representative Compel Multichoice To Adopt Pay As You Go Package Option by Akpevwe9: 4:16pm On Apr 06, 2017
The House of Representatives yesterday passed a resolution aimed at compelling MultiChoice Nigeria, a Pay-TV service provider to adopt the “ pay as you go” payment package option.

The House of Representatives yesterday passed a resolution aimed at compelling MultiChoice Nigeria, a Pay-TV service provider to adopt the pay as you go payment package option.

Adopting a motion moved by Mr. Abbas Tajudeen at the plenary presided by the Deputy Speaker, Mr. Sulaimon Yussuff Lasun, the House mandated its Committee on Telecommunications to interface with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), the Consumer Protection Council and the MultiChoice to address concerns expressed by Nigerians over the planned increase in the prices of the various bouquet on offer on its Digital Satellite Television (DStv).

Lasun directed the committee to report back to the House in eight weeks for further legislative action.Tajudeen maintained that the ever increasing prices of the various bouquet on offer by MultiChoice and its refusal to offer a Pay as you go package option on its bouquet is causing a financial strain on its subscribers.

The lawmaker observed that it has been the practice for the company to increase the prices of its various packages almost on a yearly basis, noting that in 2013 the monthly subscription increased by 7-10 per cent; in 2014 by 10-15 per cent and in 2015 by 10-22per cent, and just recently, the company sent a notification of another price increase with effect from May 1, 2017.

The very FIRST TIME our so called National Assembly will live up to expectations.

I don't really blame all these South Africa firms riding on our back and smiling to the CitiBank daily.

The likes of DSTV, MSN, SHOPRITE, SPAR and so on have one thing in common.....to suck Nigerian's dry!

The NCC is another rogue, collaborating with these South Africa firms to Milk us dry.

I could recall how MTN sold a SIM Card for 25k at the inception of GSM in Nigeria before Globalcom spoilt market for them......it's terrible!

May God all the Nigeria masses ijn.

Re: House Of Representative Compel Multichoice To Adopt Pay As You Go Package Option by henrydadon(m): 5:24pm On Apr 06, 2017
pay as you go is more expensive and you won't enjoy the full benefit of your package.

but it is more feasible for a country like nigeria as there is no constant power supply for you to enjoy your service 24/7

don't blame dstv blame nigeria and it government

honestly all service like this are increased annually...was it the same amount you use in subscribing for data plan last 2 years that you still pay now?

When you go to the gym, you can’t just pay for the treadmill..you pay for the whole gym service..imagine if you just had to pay for the treadmill do you think you will fully benefit?

Can you imagine! After killing, maiming and destroying the properties of our brothers and sisters in South Africa, they now returned to maim and cheat us in our country. I am not ruling out increase in price due to economic situation, but they should adopt pay as you go in Nigeria, since it's possible in other countries

If they can't adopt the Pay As You Go option
Nigerians must call their bluff & let them
leave Nigeria. We are Africa's largest market
we must leverage on this to get what we want.

It was Glo that forced per seconds billing on GSM.

The South Africans keep taking us for granted &
treat us with disrespect in Nigeria & their country .

We will no longer take it.

But I hope they don't approach our 'Members'
with $, £, €, ¥ etc. Make Tory no change. wink
