It depends on location, quality of service and how cost effective it is...guess we will all be swapping back and forth because promos go plenty then.

enkoby:

MTN dey do the "auto-renew' of BIS or BBC too, as long as you have sufficient airtime for the renewal.

At least you can cancel it by sending STOP to 21600 but on Etisalat, you have to migrate to Easycliq or something and it ain't free.

Nonetheless, if this thing kicks off as explained, it would be Awesome. cool

Good Question.

I doubt that would be possible(knowing our good old Telcos) but perhaps someone can throw more light on this.

from my exprience with all the networks,what I think MTN will still retain the No.1 spot,because despite having the highest number of subcribers their services are far more reliable than all the other networks.
MTN is not idle they still need to improve,but if you try GLO your balance will just keep reducing with making any call or enjoying any services.It do happens in other networks but the frequency it occurs in GLO is just unacceptable.
Airtel no need to explain
Etisalat auto renewal and challenges of obtaining 3G in there networks when you're a new subcriber especially in kano.

You are supposed to use up every credit on your former network before the number is transfered, otherwise it will be gone.

HQ: I'd be switching back and forth.

They all have their flaws.

On Etisalat, I hate the "Auto-Renew" thingy. On MTN, well (long story, you know).
jeez! That auto renew of etisalat dealt with me,i haven't forgiven etisalat since then.

Not sure yet,may be switching between mtn and etisalat. Glo will join my team if they entice me well grin

Seems like etisalat is going to have to step up their game oo. A lot of people want to join the network.

I'm not optimistic about this thing joor. It was first proposed in 2007, obviously it didn't work. When it is eventually implemented, service providers will charge a fortune to join or leave their network. They will try to discourage you from using it by making it difficult to access. For example, they will say it requires 5 days or more to port a number to a different network or you must have a minimum of N1k airtime after charges to use the service. With empty hen anything is possible.

Well the service will must likely attract a fee, which will be paid for via airtime. This will not be a 'free' service. There will be companies licensed to manage this service distinct from the regulatory body, the NCC.

I remember then too. Infact I have looked forward to this thing since 2005 when I first heard of it! What happened then was that the operators( ofcourse lead by MTN) requested for more time to finetune their infrastructure, grow their subscriber base etc.... before it could commence.

Yes ke.... It's obvious they appeal to most people. I pity Empty Hen cos ppl only stick to them cos of the stress of changing numbers... I av been waiting for like 2 years now.. Each time I look at my Empty Hen Line I feel extreme anguish utterly clueless network with so much pride.... Let's see who makes the loudest noise after MNP kicks in...
