Tele Communication Companies  in Nigeria, including  MTN, AIRTEL  and others  are  currently  being  probed  by the  Federal Government following consistent users complaints  on data depletion.

The  Nigerian Communications  Commission, NCC said  it had  started  probing data depletion in the  telecoms  Industry in line with its  mandate  of consumer  production.

The  Executive Vice  Chairman and  Chief Executive Officer of  NCC, Professor  Garba Dambatta  said   reduction in the  cost of  data might not  provide  the  lasting   solution to the  issue of data depletion, promising that the  Commission will explore  new measures  that  will address  the  issue.

He said the  Commission did its  benchmarking recently  and  discovered  that the  cost of  one Gigabyte  of  data  had  come  down below five  hundred  Naira  which represented  fifty percent   reduction from what it  used  to be.

Professor  Dambatta said  there was  however, a  target to reduce  data  cost to three hundred  and  ninety Naira  per Gigabyte by the   year  2025 adding  that the  Commission is  almost there.
