All this morning, Twitter has been flooded with outpouring of rage and bile against Nigeria’s largest GSM network, MTN.
I tweeted the following request:
Lots of complaints about MTN. What’s going on exactly? I don’t have an active MTN SIM at the moment. Feedback please?
Here are some responses I got:
Bros, Thank God you don’t have one. Its bad news
Pardon my french. MTN network is BS. I’ve finally removed the sim from my BB to a smaller phone. Mi o raye iranu rara.
The complaints include the disappearance of BlackBerry Internnet Service and generic mobile internet service. Some of the outraged subscribers say that they have experienced service breakdown for over a day.
Certain subscribers say they have now pulled their MTN SIMs or degraded them for occasional use.
Are you on the MTN network? Were you affected by service failure over the weekend? Tell us about it. Have your say!
