Nigerians Spend Over 197B on Data Subscription Monthly, How Much Do You Spend on Data Monthly?

This is no longer
funny and they claim there is no money in this country? According to the recent
statistics released, Telecoms subscribers in Nigeria spend over N197 billion on
internet data every month.

Findings
by Daily Trust from 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’ll
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 Telecos
operator make over N197billion  every month from data subscription, why are they clamoring for increase in data price again? How much
subscription do you make on data monthly?

  1. Abi the 197Billion made by telcos every month, is it paper? why do they still want to increase the price of data and call tariff? Greed has taken over that sector
