NCC plans to implement the 14 days Data rollover grace period
Sequel to earlier reports about the 14 days data rollover grace period proposed by NCC, they have come out to make an official statement about this. They are currently working on sending out a directive to all telecommunication operators in Nigeria to give a 14 days window to data subscribers, in order to enable them to roll over their unused data.
According to the chairman, Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) Mr Gbenga Adebayo, the 14 days data rollover will go along way in making the subscribers very happy, which would make it easier for their members to align with the directive provided as it does not have any impact on the existing cost,”
However, the National Association of Telecommunications Subscribers, NATCOMS, has called on NCC to extend the 14 days grace period to 30 days. According to him, 14 days grace period was not enough, since the grace period for the voice recharge is 90 days hence data subscription should not be different considering the present economic situation in the country.
NCC has however maintained that subscribers would be given the 14 days grace which means if they are unable to renew on the date of expiration of their data. This would help subscriber get to use their unused data, even if they fail to renew on the expiry date.
