You will be restricted from making Voice and Video calls on Whatsapp, Facebook, Skype and other OTT apps. Uhmm! This is really a bad one though.
Telecoms operators in the country said that;
International calls made up a critical part of their revenue because of Nigeria’s large expatriate and Diaspora population. But right now, subscribers have opted for alternative to international calls by using Skype, WhatsApp call, Facebook Video calls etc and its drastically affecting their revenue.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THEY AT LAST BLOCK US FROM SOCIAL CHATTING APPS?
I just don’t understand what is wrong with these people. They thought blocking us from making Video and Voice calls will help them recover their losses; #SMH. Anyway, these are advices for you, if they finally carried out these operations.
==> Stop buying data from any network that implements such a block.
==> For your data needs, switch to data-only networks like Smile, Ntel or Spectranet for all your data needs. Because they are data-only, they want you to make all the WhatsApp and Skype calls that you can make. Data is their only income. (Though you need a 4G LTE enabled smartphone or a Universal MIFI).
==> To use those data-only networks, their SIM cards work in compatible phones. Or just buy a mifi and put their SIM in it for use. (You can unlock the MIFI if you can’t use it with another network).
