I am sure that you remember Airtel’s recent “Fast Is An Attitude” campaign with nostalgia. Apparently, it is not only here in Nigeria that the “fast” thing is rubbing off wrong on users on that network. I ran into a classical jibe at Airtel on Twitter yesterday from a Kenyan resident. I tried to copy the codes so I can embed the tweet here, but it kept giving me a server connection error, so I shall just link to it and paste here as well. The offending tweet says:
I finally figured out how to make the Airtel modem faster. I threw it through the window, it went really fast.
I was in stitches for quite a while after reading that. It rang a bell with me because that sounds like an apt solution to my experience with internet service on Airtel. Jokes aside, we all know that location is a factor, and so I am sure that there are others having a pleasurable internet experience on the Airtel network.
