Update on the proposed 9% telecom tax: Subscribers of telecom networks in Nigeria will likely pay an additional N261.18bn on voice calls, short message service and data in one year if the Senate passes the proposed Communications Service Bill into law.

The bill was sponsored by Senator Ali Ndume from Borno South, and it will impose nine per cent on electronic communication services like voice calls, SMS, data usage – both from telecommunication services providers and Internet service providers and pay-per-view TV services.
