No More 30-days subscriptions,;extend to 14days more order NCC.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has directed all telecommunications

operators in the country to grant its customers additional 14 days after the 30-day period of

data expiration.

The directive, as disclosed by NCC`s Executive Vice-Chairman, Umar Danbatta, mandates

the telcos to allow for a 14-day grace period for customers to exhaust their data


Danbatta, who made the disclosure on Thursday in Minna, Niger state, said the

 development was to ensure internet data subscribers have great value for their money.

“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,” said Hellen Obi,

who represented Danbatta

 during a consumers’ conversation forum in the state.

“The commission which is the independent regulatory authority for the telecommunications

industry in Nigeria declared year 2017 as NCC year of the telecom consumer in recognition

of the importance of the consumer to the

phenomenal growth 

and development in the telecoms sector.

“The year of telecom consumer, which was formally launched by NCC executive vice


Danbatta, is in tandem with the 8-point agenda of the commission aimed to protect,

educate, and empower consumers towards ensuring 

sustainable growth and further development in the telecom sector,” Obi said.
