#ReduceInternetPrices is trending number one on the Ghanaian Twitter landscape.
Thousands of people are calling on the three main telcos, MTN, Vodafone, and AirtelTigo to reduce the cost of their data charges.
Most comments are on the fact that ‘data’ now vanishes into the thin air. You buy now and within the next hour, it’s all gone.
Below are some comments:
“Data is very expensive in this country, and the annoying thing is the services we get from these telcos is terrible. Like paying extra for shit. 🤦🏾♂️ #ReduceInternetPrices”
“Because telecommunication companies in Ghana are lobbying in parliament, our leader have turned a blind eye to the plight of the people. Data charges are too expensive in Ghana, and the annoying thing is that their services aren’t that great🤦🏽♂️. My friend Unamused face #ReduceInternetPrices”
“Vodafone used to be the most reliable and stable network but then when this lockdown started, their internet is just dead.
We’re experiencing the worst internet connection rn but yet still paying high amount for it. It’s either they fix the problem or #ReduceInternetPrices”
See the complaints of tweeps below:
“Government must negotiate with Telcos a possible reduction in tariffs so that we can pass on that to many people who are working from home or are having to be home. This can be done with an assurance of free extension of their licenses for six months some of which I’m informed is to expire soon.”, he said.
