Much like all the telcos, the cost of the tax is being passed onto the consumer.

This follows increases in fuel prices, transport fares, electricity tariffs, water bills and almost anything else you can think of, under the government who allegedly came to save us from the higher taxes of the NDC.

In related news, Communications Minister Ursula Owusu has announced that government would soon tax Mobile Money transactions.
