  1. A good one! If I was a Blackberry user I’d be delighted. I hope they’ll get a user friendly Data stuff for other class of Smartohone users!

  2. This cutting-throat people, they are at it again with another trick to rob Nigerians hard-earned money. They should first do something about their voice call rates, can you imagine it is far cheaper to call mtn line with glo and airtel than mtn 2 mtn? With just 25k/s I can call all network with my glo and airtel lines… for now i am forced to use my mtn to receive calls only.

  3. Can someone let us in on the new tarriffs from MTN? The super saver looks great on the surface.

  4. I doubt if mtn still makes the same revenue per user as before. A lot of people like me have since moved on to other telcos. Imagine mtn to mtn being more expensive than glo to mtn just like jikong1 mentioned.

  5. The only thing I can think of that MTN did right is that they started the BB price reduction and I really like their FAF plans.

    But am totally against the call rates and the fact that up till today they still claim they are working on Magic Numbers.
