Report Reviewed That Nigerians Spend Over 197B on Data Subscription Monthly

Findings by Daily Trustfrom the four GSM operators revealed conservative estimates of category of data users and how much they spent on data monthly.

About 70% of internet users or 64m use up to N1000 data monthly each, raising the operators’ revenue base by N64bn.

Also, about 15% or 13.8m users, mostly small business owners and middle class people, each purchase an average of N3000 data monthly, contributing N41.1bn every month to the telcos’ coffers.
Similarly, 10% of the internet subscribers or 9.15m use N5000 each every month, growing the operators’ revenue by N45.6bn.

About 5% of the internet customers or 4.6m buy N10,000 data each, increasing the GSM and mobile internet companies’ revenue by N46bn, according to findings made by Daily Trust.

You will also recall that the latest Monthly Subscriber/Operator Data released by the regulator last month showed that MTN had 58,121,427 users, and Glo 37,270,100 customers, Airtel 34,336,802 while 9mobile has 19,621,806 users. The remaining figures were shared between the other smaller operators.
But only 92m of the 149.5m subscribers are active internet users, and they depend on data provided by the telcos to access the world-wide-web and hook on to the social media, information on the NCC’s website showed.

If Telecoms operator in Nigeria make over N197billion every month from data subscription, why are they clamoring for increase in data price again?
