MTN Reveals Why Your Data Get Exhausted on time After Losing over 600,000 Subscribers
After revealing that MTN lost 667,245 subscribers in August alone, reaction trailing the news has prompted MTN to reveal why its data exhaust on time.
MTN Nigeria being the largest
telecommunications company in the country, as at July 2019 had 52.2 million
internet subscribers but lost 667,245 internet subscribers in August while
other telcos like Airtel and Visa gained more subscribers.
The attention of MTN NG was caught by the news on social media and the reaction of subscribers as seen below;
MTN disclosed that an upgrade in its internet speed was the cause for the quick exhaustion of data. Meaning that the faster your internet network is, the faster your data gets depleted.
Few years down the line 1.5GB data used to last 20 – 25 days without downloads, just normal surfing. But not anymore; the data table has changed, it has been manipulated. 1GB data is just like 100MB right now. Open a page, cross check your mail and reply your WhatsApp messages, the next text message you get is “you’ve exhausted your monthly data plan”.
This is sad because even NCC is not doing anything about
data depletion. We understand the place of applications automatically updating themselves
on mobile but data table has been tampered with. If you want to know the real
data, subscribe to weekend plans and see for yourself how data should run.
If you are one of such subscribers that face data exhaustion regardless of your network, here is what you can do to at least reduce it. Check this post here.
Let us know what you think in comment and how much you’ve
spent on data subscription this month.
