DStv/GOtv Subscribers Say No to New Tariffs

  • DStv/GOtv Subscribers Say No to New Tariffs

Association of Telephone, Cable TV and Internet Subscribers on Thursday rejected the new increase in tariffs proposed by DStv/GOtv despite the negative impact of COVID-19 pandemic on Nigerians.

In a letter to MultiChoice, the Group expressed their displeasure at the company’s plan to increase tariffs in Nigeria effective June 1, 2020.

Adesina Bilesanmi, the National President, ATCIS, and Mrs Loris Anger, the Secretary to the Board of Trustees, who signed the letter said, “We write on behalf of Board of Trustees, Elders Forum, Executives and entire members with over 185 million subscribers drawn from the six geopolitical zones.

“The above-named association, wish to notify you that, we say no to increase in monthly tariff DStv/GOtv subscription in Nigeria during COVID-19. We are the masses advocate and fight for positive change for the interest of the subscribers.”

The association said it was inaccurate to introduce a new tariff based on the new Value Added Tax of 7.5 per cent.

According to the group, five per cent VAT has already been included in the previous tariff plan and the tariff increment should only be based on the additional 2.5 per cent.
