  1. They are not planning to increase tariff. Tariff presently has gone up. My present mtn package (pulse) use to be quite cheap. But presently it's almost worst than other tariffs.

  2. What kind of review are we talking about here? Since the price of everything practically goes up in NG everyday. The baygon I once bought for 500 is now N1050. I really wish the review we are talking about here is the downward review.
