The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) says the broadband price war between bigger and smaller operators will soon come to an end, ThisDay reported. The NCC said it would soon release a new cost-based pricing for retail broadband that would give smaller operators a competitive advantage to remain in business. Funlola Akiode, the NCC's director of Licensing and Authorisation said the decision to release a new cost-based pricing for retail broadband arose from a forum held 2017, where the issue of anti-competition was raised.
