The Battle Between 9Mobile And Frustrated Nigerians
A battle ensued between Nigerians and telecommunications company, 9Mobile.
Nigerians were still trying to get used to the name change from Etisalat to 9Mobile, hoping that this would mean better network service. However, due to the recent network disruptions, they were frustrated into thinking the worst of the company.
9Mobile revealed earlier that one of its data centres had suffered network outage, disrupting its services to a section of its subscribers. They also said that a team of engineers were working overnight to solve the problem.
But Nigerians were not having it. They took to social media to vent their frustrations about the poor network.
Trying to defend their integrity? Think this is a one-sided opinion? Here are some (hilarious) reactions from frustrated Nigerians.
So Glo and Etisalat sorry 9mobile are in a competition currently to see who has the worst network connection.

Damn. 9mobile network is so trash. Did Etisalat carry all their masts when leaving?

Mudabala took network back to dubai.

This leaves you to wonder if the “village people” they’re always talking about are really your ISP.
Your case is different. Consult your village people.

I drove to Abraham Adesanya from Chevron last week because I needed to make a pretty important call.

They told me to use another line to call customer service but all lines are having the issue. They should have just let Etisalat be.
