MTN Loses 2m Subscribers In 3 Months by Islie: 2:57pm On May 15
By Samson Akintaro


Dominant telecom operator in the country, MTN, lost 2.09 million subscribers between January and March this year, New Telegraph has learnt.

The telco, which had 67.1 million active subscribers at the end of 2018, ended March 2019 with 65 million active customers, according to statistics released by Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

However, the decline in number of subscribers could not stop the company from generating N282 billion from voice and data services in the first three months of the year, as revealed in its recently released Q1 result.

As at the end of March, MTN still remained the largest telecom operator by subscriber in the country with 37 per cent share of the market.

The telecom industry’s data for March released yesterday by NCC showed that total active subscriptions across the mobile networks rose marginally by 156,335 to reach 173.4 million as against 173.2 million recorded in February.

While MTN lost 531,283 million active subscriptions in the month, other GSM operators, Globacom, Airtel and 9mobile gained more subscriptions.

Analysis of the statistics showed that Globacom retained its second position with 46.2 million subscriptions as it gained 199,186 subscriptions in the month.

Airtel emerged as highest gainer for the month as it added 262,803 new users to achieve 45.2 million active subscriptions in the month.

9mobile also maintained its steady return to subscription growth as it gained 107,822 subscriptions, which brought its total active customers to 16.8 million.

Despite the marginal rise in the number of active subscriptions, the country’s teledensity declined from 124.05 per cent in February to 91 per cent.

Teledensity refers to the number of telephone connections for every 100 individuals living within an area and it varies widely across the country.

NCC noted that from March 2019, teledensity is now being calculated based on a population estimate of 190 million as against 140 million being used over the years.

Meanwhile, the figure of active Internet subscribers over the mobile networks rose by 1.2 million to hit 115.9 million by the end of March.

The data showed that MTN also maintained the lead in data customers with 46.5 million users, while Airtel came second in data subscriptions with 31.2 million active users. Globacom had 28.4 million Internet subscriptions as at March while 9mobile had 9.6 million.

Consistency!!! They're just like PDP, Everyone thought that they will crumble after the NCC slammed with charges worth billions of naira, (2015 Elections) but they bounced back and prove to them that they're like Muhammed Salah who's not a one season wonder. That's my preferred network and most people will agree with me that they're the best connection.

Usless telecommunication provider. MTN like its contemporaries - Glo, Airtel and 9mobile, provide the poorest of the poorest services while relentlessly exploiting its subscribers.

The NCC which has as its main responsibility to protect Nigerians from exploitation is as useless as the alphabet ‘p’ in the word ‘psychology’.

Nigerians know this but still continue to use the network providers while not making any effort to call on the NCC to perform its duties and when u ask them why they continue to behave his way, they give you replies such as “wetin person go do na?!”

Well what do you expect from a people who are so dumb to the point that they came out enmass to vote for the two worst candidates on the ballot sheet (who blantantly refused to participate in televised debates on burning issues with regards the nation’s present and future) while deriding other outstanding candidates with better policies and proposals on how to make their lives better.

A people so corrupt, greedy and self-centered that almost every office you visit, public and private, workers would be asking you to “drop something” or to “wet ground”....even also immigration officers at airports.

To add to that Nigerians are cowards and they would always tell you “na who wan die”.

Go look at Sudan and Algeria, and how the ordinary people are braving even death to take back their lives and futures from those who have stolen it for decades.

That is the kind of people I want to be associated with, not the cowards who call themselves ‘Nigerians’ while beating chest up and down about irrelevant tribal and religious issues

The government is not the problem, the citizens from whom the government officials were selected are the ones responsible for the total rot of the nation. A nation without a present or a future.

And almost every single citizen wants to leave the country at all cost for ‘greener pastures’, hence they keep embarassing themselves at home and abroad.

Useless citizens of a dead nation!
