MTN and Airtel Declares Free SMS to Enable Customers Connect with their Loved Ones During this Lockdown

This is a moment which will affect every sector of the country and MTN and Airtel have come to our rescue by deciding to unveil free SMS to its users enabling them to connect with their loved ones during the 14days lockdown.

Recall that the 7.5% VAT Policy was implemented recently making users complain about the high rates at which airtime is been consumed both on SMS and calls and the telco's have been adamant on the issue until the government declared a lockdown and stay at home directive are implemented.

MTN decided to offer free SMS to only loved ones on the same network i.e MTN to MTN, meanwhile, Airtel Made it available to all networks; although this offer is not necessary for most of us; it's something to rely on during this quarantine period.

The free SMS Airtel and MTN are offering to their customers can't be sent to all your friends and families across any network. For the MTN users, you get to enjoy 300 SMS for a month with which you can send only 10 SMS/day. You need to receive this message first before you can confirm that you’re eligible for this offer;

Stay CONNECTED with your loved ones WITHOUT using your CREDIT! Enjoy FREE 300 SMS for the next one month (10 SMS/day) to ALL NETWORKS

While the Airtel users have unlimited access to free SMS to any network. The only thing that you should take note of is that a Fair Usage policy applies to prevent network congestion at this time when network stability is paramount to keep everyone connected.

However, Nigerians have reacted to the offer; see it as an insult to the Nigerian people. In this present age where about 90% of subscribers make use of instant messaging to communicate with their love ones which in return requires data; Airtel and MTN want to take subscribers back to the ancient times of SMS.

With this move, let's hope the telco providers will give everyone free data during this period, and we hope that this virus gets eradicated very soon, stay safe!
