Nigerian Telecoms To Block Access To Social Media Video Calls Including Facebook And WhatsApp


Economic crisis in the country is really hitting businesses hard to the extent that telecom industry have opted for a serious plan which might not be favourable to users.

Telecoms companies are now complaining of the revenue losses from international calls and are afraid they may lose between N20tn and N30tn, or so, by the end of 2018. Their plan now is by blocking subscribers from accessing Skype and other Over-the-Top services like WhatsApp in order to recover their losses.


This means that you won't be able to make calls or video calls on WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook and other OTT services.

Telecoms operators said the international calls are really affecting their revenue because of the large population of Nigerians over foreign countries and right now, subscribers have opted for alternative to international calls by using Skype, WhatsApp call, Facebook Video calls e.t.c and is really affecting their revenue.

We hope situation of things doesn't get worst for people in Nigeria.
