It’s no longer news the Nigerian mobile operators have started charging their subscribers high in terms of tariff due to the newly introduced 7.5% VAT by the Nigerian government. This simply means that sending SMS or making calls now attracts the new 7.5% VAT. However, this is only applicable to subscribers on Pulse and mPulse tariff plans for now.
As earlier stated, this is as a result of the federal government imposing income withholding tax on foreign companies for professional and consulting services provided to Nigerians.
|Previous Tariff||Current Tariff||Previous Charges||Current Charges|
|Pulse||Flat rate of 11kobo/ to all networks after spending N15||Flat rate of 11.26kobo/sec to all networks after spending N15.6K||N4||N4.10|
|mPulse||Flat rate of 15kobo/sec OR N9/min||Flat rate of 15.36k/secs or N9.2/min||N4||N4.10|
