The idea that you can’t share your credit except you are on the same operator platform has become very boring and even frustrating.For instance, you have two phones with two different GSM operators Sim cards and you have more than enough credit on a particular one, instead of buying more credit, you can always take out the other that has more than enough.
This innovation has been adopted by leading GSM operators in the country, Airtel and Glorified, which means the users of both can start enjoying the unique service that the company is offering through them.
According to Adigun, the novel offering is also about convenience and bonding for families and friends.“Convenience to transfer airtime when there is no other top up means a lot to millions of Nigerians. Also the code application allows families and friends to share airtime. Right now we are starting with Global and Airtel, we know other operators will engage in little or no time,” he added.
Credit Switch was built on an idea that users to share or sell airtime across any network across different countries. Credit switch limited is an international mobile top up company, created to simplify the sale and distribution of airtime globally. With this technology, you can top up credit for family and friends worldwide from the comfort of your laptop or mobile device.
