Which one is follow follow again? Is competition follow follow in your own dictionary? Look here, if not for Glo, MTN would have long cut your throat with per minute billings.

An interesting angle to this is that, saved mobile numbers/contacts would no longer be associated with any particular network at facevalue, unless your contact informs you of his/her migration to a particular platform.

I personally would just be interested in the operator that's offering the best call rates to all networks rather than on-net call rates and off-net call rates. Because in truth, unless a migration sms will be sent to contacts once a migration is done, you hardly would know if you're making an on-net or an off-net call.

That is very correct but, for people like me, I will always know your present network (even though your number is 0802, 0803, 0804, 0805 or 0809), in as much as all the four major telecoms providers have different buffing sounds when you call a number on their network. Let's wait and see. Thank you.

Which December ? 2013 grin

it has been slated....... since 2007

It was first muted around 2005, when Ernest Ndukwe was still the NCC chairman. That's when I first heard of it. It began to gather steam at about 2007,but the networks claimed they weren't ready for it's implementation then.

Re: Mobile Number Portability: What Network Would You Be Migrating To? by Nobody: 6:19pm On Jan 17, 2013
Truth is I won't be taking it personal, just strictly business. No networks out-rightly bad and none is ultimately perfect. Utility being location based and greatly depending on network reception in geographical area of domicile. I've got them all (...minus Etisalat) and alternate/intensify use based on current cheapest tariff. Though MTN's my main line partly cos I've had it the longest.

Looks like most of the migrations will be toward Etisalat.

Like your telco to bits or can't wait to change lines? Take this survey on number portability #Nigeria #naija #trends

http://ht.ly/jBoKZ

So far about 68% of movement appears to be towards Etisalat, MTN currently at the bottom though...
Chart updated in realtime based on user interaction. It does appear that number portability will actually drive Etisalat's market share...
Sign up to get a basic summary of movements when the poll closes.

Attached is chart as at this morning 9.am

Re: Mobile Number Portability: What Network Would You Be Migrating To? by azpekuliar: 12:52pm On Mar 31, 2013
^^ Interesting! Etisalat had better brace up. I also hope statistics can be released to the general public quarterly on network migrations.

My present package on Glo is 15k/s (N9/m) for Glo calls and 25k/s (N15/m) for other networks. Is this not amazing?

Are you kidding me? MTN Supersaver plan is 10k/s (N6/m) for MTN calls, 30k/s for other networks. They have Pulse which is cheaper for MTN calls (about N3/m).

I have MTN, Glo and Airtel lines. I dumped my Etisalat line after loosing so much money plus calls hardly connect.
Truth is that, Glo and MTN are still the best, wait until etisalat have twice the number of their subscribers or half that of MTN or even Glo, then you will know they are just hype!

I don't think Glo and MTN will suffer from the MNP thingy, I feel they will be vindicated finally. Its the smaller networks that will suffer once they start growing subscriber base, a position MTN and Glo went through several years back.

Plus no body is saying this, I have lost money to all the networks and MTN is the only network that refunds. When i scratched my card wrongly, MTN customer care have been able to load it for me. Glo customer care will tell me to spend N1000 to get to their office to load N500 card that wasn't even scratched. Etisalat customer care is whacked, Airtel's reps are rude to hell, they hang the call on you.

My opinion overall, MTN best for voice, coverage and customer service, Glo for internet, airtel for not making so much noise, etisalat for students/youth.
Re: Mobile Number Portability: What Network Would You Be Migrating To? by TechyGuy: 2:29pm On Mar 31, 2013
NCC is also fixing a rate to off net for all networks so the smaller networks will suffer most. Their profit will drop greatly which will affect their ability to expand.

They likely will. They do in Ghana.

You lie man!... Been an Airtel user for close to 9 years now, not once have I spoken to a rude customer rep.
Re: Mobile Number Portability: What Network Would You Be Migrating To? by shaiguy(m): 10:25am On Apr 01, 2013
Etisalat continues to lead by a wide margin. Most users appear to be heading out towards Etisalat with Airtel a distant second. MTN remains firmly rooted to the bottom of the chart. I have attached a sample report from the backend showing movement patterns at at 10.20am this morning.

Be sure to share this with your friends and complete the poll yourself.
