PARLIAMENT ACT TO BAN INTERNET DATA EXPIRY

Parliament has unanimously adopted a motion moved by Nalikwanda Member of Parliament Geoffrey Lungwangwa, urging government to prohibit internet service providers from prescribed expiry dates on Internet bundles purchased by customers.

Professor Lungwangwa questioned why data in Zambia is not transferable and that service providers exploit its customers by benefiting more through expired data.

He told Parliament that the issue of data affects everyone and connectivity through network systems is a nature of life for the fourth industrial revolution is dependent on data.
