MTN Launches E-sim In Nigeria For Selected Devices by Yinksy09(m): 9:35pm On Jul 15, 2020
Only 10 countries in the World offer eSIM support at the moment and today Nigeria joins the league of countries with e-sim support. The arrival of MTN e-sim in Nigeria is the beginning of the end for physical SIM cards. The adoption of embedded SIM (eSIM) technology is slowly rising in Africa, with South Africa leading in the region.
Anchoring the event at the MTN Nigeria eSIM launch was Fisayo Fosudo, a visual storyteller and tech video producer. During the live launch he took participants back to the evolution of SIM cards and how it looked like.
CEO and COO of MTNNG, Ferdi Moolman and Mazen Mroue explains to the participants about the eSIM journey and what the future looks like for the Nigerian digital economy. Ferdi Moolman said, he was also astonished by the idea of SIMless devices. At the moment, not up to 15 countries around the world have eSIM support, Nigeria is the first in West Africa.

We all have been. The issue of carrying physical SIM cards around and fear of it been stolen or damaged. Process of sim swap or registration is tedious. This would solve so many issues.

you don’t have to throw it away but for now it can only work for compatible devices that support e-sim. With time other devices can do that.
This applies everywhere not only Nigeria. Thank you
