Nigerian Telcos Consider Tariff Hike Amid Economic Pressures

Telecommunication operators in Nigeria are considering raising tariffs for voice and data services, according to indications from a study conducted by KPMG, commissioned by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

The study, aimed at assessing costs, suggests that higher tariffs may be necessary to ensure the sustainability of telecommunication businesses. Factors such as the high cost of diesel and the depreciation of the naira contribute to the growing expenses faced by these companies.

They argue that with a significant portion of costs denominated in dollars and the ongoing devaluation of the naira, increasing tariffs has become essential to maintaining a viable business.
