Parley Adopts Motion to Stop Data Bundle Expiry

Parliament has unanimously adopted a motion urging government to prohibit internet service providers from prescribed expiry dates on Internet bundles purchased by customers

The mover of the motion, Professor Geoffrey Lungwangwa, wondered why data in Zambia is not transferable and that service providers exploit its customers by benefiting more through expired data.

Prof Lungwangwa, who is Nalikwanda Member of Parliament, told the House that the issue of data affects everyone and connectivity through network systems is a nature of life since the fourth industrial revolution is dependent on data.

    A good motion Honourable- one wonders why you have forfeit what you have paid for in full- lts high time these technical thieves are stopped- Remember when these providers came in the country THEY WERE CHARGING CUSTOMERS FOR RECEIVING CALLS-Its time for sanity

  2. Chimpolyongo

    They should just start charging calls per month. 5 kwacha per month, that will be better

    That is a good motion honorable Lungwagwa, many of us we are regular customers who depend on data, even so, my area of concern is the congestion that is rises whenever we have cheap data offers or even cheap voice data and when there’s congestion what we experience normally is network failure, i presume that is because of the network system we have in Zambia is low. Consequently i suggest that the network providers must find a way to provide strong network even to those using 3G networks. However, this is very important issue that if supported and accepted it can benefit many; learners, beginning from primary, secondary and tertiary education. Not only that even many others in different professions, when faced with a challenged at work they don’t have to wait up to the time they will have to ugrade there studies to solve the problem. One can carry out a three days research for instance depending on the intensity of the problem. Moreover we also have E- learning which requires which is inevitable to internet access. Now that is one to help a poor Zambian or those living an average standard of life because that is the majority of Zambians.
