Association of Telecommunication Companies of Nigeria (ATCON) has protested the directive to roll over of data by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
The Ncc had directed the operators to roll over unused data for seven days to ensure full utilisation of data purchased by telecoms consumers.
The association warns that the proposal will negatively impact the revenues of carriers.
The association President, Olusola Teniola, said the directive of the regulator will hurt the bottom line of service providers.
According to him, the implication of the directive is that within those seven days consumers are not being charged for a data plan, which represents a loss of revenue for members
On multiple taxations, Teniola said the association is in talks with the government for harmonisation of the right of way (row).
on the remaining 37 taxes, he said the association is seeking further dialogues with the ministry of finance and the president’s office to ensure that telecoms industry is not being targeted for taxes that are duplicated not only by the federal but state and local governments.
