I guess it is no longer news that Nigeria’s home brewed mobile network company, Globacom, has been having serious issues delivering on its obligations. Going on 72 hours now, its mobile internet services has been down, a reflection of the epileptic services it has been offering for the best part of this year.
This is, probably, also a reflection of the state of the Mobile Networks in Nigeria where more money is spent in “hyping” their services than providing the service itself.
Globacom is a 100 percent Nigerian privately owned telecommunications carrier with over 25 million subscribers. Other big players in the Nigerian mobile sector include MTN (South African), Airtel (Indian) and Etisalat (UAE).
Much as I like the Globacom because of the dynamism and affordabilty it has brought to the Nigerian mobile sector, it really needs to put its house in order. For now, I am moving on to another competitor, hoping it would only be for a short while.
“Glo with pride?!”
