Due to the lackadaisical ways in which Nigerian network providers are slashing their data prices
and probably call tarriffs, Nigeria online community are also lackadaisical in their moves from network to network.
This trend is nowhere going to end soon as far as there is always an inequality in the benefits acclaimed by network providers.
