Founding President of the Policy think tank, IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe has taken a swipe at the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications for advising the public on how to use their internet data during the lockdown period.

According to him, it is not the business of the Chamber to direct consumers on how to use their data on videos and other fun activities during this lockdown period.

He opines that the Chamber should rather have as its business how fighting regulators on what describes as  ”their offensive wasteful interventions such as the 50% hike in CST( tax).

His comments follow a 10 point document issued by the Telecommunications Chamber urging Ghanaians to be guided by the way they use mobile data.

The chamber, among others, called on the populace to avoid unnecessary video calls and also limit the amount of data they use within digital rush hours such as 9am and 11am as well as 7pm and 11pm.

The document discourages the sending of bulk emails, leaving applications active when not in use, avoid sendling large bulk files among others.

”It is not the business of the Telecoms Chamber to be telling consumers how to use their data on videos and other fun activity during this lockdown period,”

”It is the surest way to keep psychologically safe. They should battle the regulators on their offensive wasteful interventions such as the 50% hike in CST( tax) and we will all be fine. We love the Chamber nonetheless!” he wrote on Facebook.
