Now Mtn has urged the Fed Govt to ban whatsapp because it is having an adverse effect on there services.
The Chief Executive Officer, CEO, of MTN Nigeria, Mr. Ferdinand Moolman, disclosed that the activities of ‘over-the-top’ companies like WhatsApp, Viber have adverse effects on its business and affects the sustainability of Nigeria’s telecommunications industry.
The MTN boss pointed out that these companies were eroding gains of Nigeria’s telecom companies and asked Nigeria to take action like the United Arab Emirates did.
I know you would want to know what actions United Arab Emirates took? WhatsApp, snapchat calls banned in UAE… Inshort it can land you in Jail if you are caught.
Its clear that some Telecoms are highly supporting all this going on with the Internet in Nigeria.
