Nigerians have continued to express disgruntlement over the high cost of Internet data in the county.
Very many Nigerians have come forward in recent times to complain about the fast depletion of data bundles – which seems to the uniform across all the network providers in the country.
From the testimonies of some users, data bundles that were originally lasting for up to a month now barely covers for two week.
Due to incessant complaints, network providers have been seen trying their to furnish those experiencing these concerns with answers, but seems they would have to a lot more than they are doing now to convince Nigerians.
Most of the providers have explained that charges are based on usage, not necessarily based on time, among other defense they have put up, but Nigerians remain adamant there’s situation was not normal.

Something definitely happened to @MTNNG data metering system of late. While I still pay N5,000 for monthly 10GB data, the data depletes faster than the networks internet speed.
