Telecoms Beg NCC To Block Whatsapp, Skype, IMO And Other OTT Services by Techpaded(f): 12:53pm On Aug 22, 2017
Nowadays, only few people make international calls due to the presence of Over-the-top (OTT) plays like Whatsapp, Skype, Wechat, Facebook, Viber and IMO. This caused a global revenue loss of $386 billion, from 2012 to 2018 for the telecoms operators. Hence, MTN, Airtel, GLO and 9Mobile are lamenting, urging the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to intervene and stop OTT services .

In opposition to this, I suggest that OTT plays should be left alone, because we users buy data from the Telcos to access services like WhatsApp, Skype, etc. While they are lamenting losses from voice/video calls, they are, on the other hand, jubilating from excess gains they make from data.

They should continue to beg o until they themselves will realise that their call rates are outrageously and paddedly expensive despite the bonus we receive for every recharge, especially the green network!

How can i have #600 airtime yet i can't talk for up to 15 minutes?

If they do the right or ideal thing they won't need to beg. Whatsapp and co aren't begging people to use them.

NCC can't even try that. This is a global trend. The Telcom should evolve as the world is evolving.
