Starting from June 26, Telecom operators will henceforth rollover a subscriber’s unused or unfinished data.
The Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) has directed operators in the telecommunication industry to begin data rollover from June 26. This means telecom operators must henceforth add a subscriber’s unused or unfinished data to his/her new or next data subscription.
Prof Garba Umar Danbatta, who is the the NCC’s Executive Vice Chairman, said telecom operators must begin the implementation of the data rollover directive from June 26, 2018.
He gave the marching order at the 95th consumers outreach programme in Dutse, Jigawa State.
“Failure to implement this will attract N5m fine on the first of failure on each sim card and N500,000 on each day that follows the first default date.
“All these are to ensure that the consumers’ rights, privileges and interests are adequately protected,” he said.
This is a welcome development. Or what do you think?
