NCC has been on the neck of major Nigeria ISPs in recent time, and one of things the regulator is pressing hard on is the data rollover extension policy. By the policy, ISPs must give their subscribers a grace period before terminating unused data.
To enforce the policy, NCC stated it in the news last week that all major ISPs (MTN, Glo, Airtel, and 9mobile) should follow the policy, and from the look of things, MTN appears to be the first Nigeria ISP to comply.
So, MTN now has a grace period for all its data subscriptions, with the highest period being for the monthly plan – – extra 7 days, making the monthly plan now 37 days. As for the daily MTN data plan, it will now expire in two days, while the weekly plan, which was formerly 7 days, will now expire in 10 days.
It is really a good news for MTN subscribers as they now have more days to use their data. Hopefully the other ISPs would follow the NCC’s policy soon, too.
