Telcos To Block Video and Voice Calls On Social Medias Like Whatsapp,Facebook etc

TomitFebruary 22, 2017
All telcos in Nigeria are complaining of losing from international calls and are afraid they may lose about N20TN and N30TN by the end of 2018. They are planning to block subscribers from accessing Over-The-Top services like FacebookWhatsApp, Skype, Viber and the likes; they also added that they may be able to recover all their losses if they restrict us from these chatting apps.


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.


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).
