Good news -there will be NO increase in mobile tariff on daily and social media data bundles used by the majority of Sierra Leoneans.
Ordinary citizens have won the battle – mobile companies and government have listened to the concerns of the people.
Confirmed reports say the proposed tariff adjustment in voice and data is due any day now, but the tariff on daily and social media data bundles used by the majority of the subscribers will not be affected by the proposed tariff review.
According to reports, this came about after the one-day dialogue and engagement in December 2022, at the Country Lodge in Freetown with Mobile Network Operators, the Minister of Information, the Consumer Protection Agency, the media, the regulatory body of all mobile companies (NatCA), Civil Society Organizations, Okada Riders, Market Women, Kekeh Riders and other stakeholders in the country that endorsed the minimal tariff increment.
In the next 24 hours, both MNOs and NatCA would have reached an agreement on the final tariff. However, there will be increment in other mobile tariffs.
Fingers crossed 🤞
