NCC Sets Price Cap on Text Messages to 4 Naira on all Networks

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has done it again. With effect from  February 5th 2013, Short Message Service (SMS) across all local networks is N4.00 per SMS for all domestic off-net SMS.

The new price cap is a 60 per cent reduction from the former price that was N10 per SMS for off-net and N5 per SMS for on-net text messages. It was related that the directive as reached operators since January 3, 2013 and signed by Director, Legal and Regulatory Services of NCC, Ms. Josephine Amuwa.

She said:
“Having evaluated and analysed SMS traffic information provided by the operators, the commission noted that there was a general recognition that the cost of SMS is too high, especially in view of the interconnection rate of N1.02 (One Naira, Two Kobo Only) for SMS as determined by the Commission in 2009,”
Well February 5th is just few weeks away. Drop your comments...
