Written by Olarotimi Oshin on February 15, 2023
MTN subscribers in Nigeria groaned for more than three hours yesterday as they were unable to connect to the network for hours, leading to loss of money to the telco and its subscribers who use the network for their businesses. While subscribers could not make calls, banks and many other financial institutions on the network of the telco lost their transactions, hence losing revenue running to millions of naira.
As at December, 2022, the Nigerian Communications Commission’s (NCC’s) industry statistics revealed that MTN had over 89 million, GLO has 60.3 million; Airtel has 60 million while 9mobile has 12.8 million.
