Some MTN customers were unable to communicate with loved ones and business associates in other parts of the country due to a service outage.

Customers were unable to use the mobile network operator’s call, data, and SMS services, according to the findings. Around 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 9, 2021, the message “Emergency calls only” appeared on the screens of some MTN users.

The outage began for some subscribers around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, according to some subscribers. Some of the users, who had previously subscribed to other telecom service providers, had switched over to connect with friends and family in the interim.MTN Nigeria compensates subscribers for outages

The outage was blamed on “an error that shifted all of our 4G customers to the 3G band,” according to MTN Nigeria Communications Plc. The 3G band was overloaded as a result, causing a domino effect that affected the entire network.”

MTN’s chief executive officer, Karl Toriola, stated in a press release that the company’s technical team was able to resolve the issue in about five hours, allowing customers to reconnect with one another.
