The Nigerian Communications Commission on Wednesday announced the immediate suspension of the new minimum pricing template for data services by mobile operators.
The new rate, which would have led to price increase in data for some Nigerians, was scheduled to take effect from December 1.
The NCC said the decision is to allow for further consultation.
The NCC’s decision comes a few hours after the Senate ordered a stop to the planned increase.
