Gremlins hold MTN internet server hostage

Posted by

Yesterday evening, a gang of nasty gremlins launched an attack on MTN Nigeria’s packet data service, rendering it unusable. Till this moment, trying to get a connection on the MTN 3G and GPRS networks has been more difficult than pushing a camel through the eye of a needle.


We are talking over 24 hours of unusable service to data subscribers. Hopefully, this nightmare will be over when the sun rises tomorrow.



  1. No wonder! I have been wondering what the heck was going on. Getting access has been hell & I have a mountain of work and deadlines to meet. As I speak, I am at a cafe – can’t remember when last – and it has been frustrating. I have spent 3 hours doing 30 mins work! Not funny!!!

  2. Bayuze,

    I have been burning my candle at both ends, using Glo prepaid internet as a backup right now. It is sad. As I type this, the problem is yet unsolved.

    3 hours doing 30 minutes work? Oh, dear…

  3. Yomi I dont really think so…They might be back or still lingering as I have had unreliable service for the past couple of days!
