NCC declares Airtel the best network in Nigeria

The Nigerian Communications Commission today declared Airtel the best mobile operator in Nigeria. In its audit report released today, NCC said Airtel recorded the best performance in call set up success rate, drop call rate, call completion rate and traffic channel congestion.

Mobile subscribers in Naija, do you agree?

how can? well of several evil, 1 will chose d lesser 1. i personaly have a bad experience with Airtel.call rate is cheapest on Etisat.

well i dont use it so i cant say. the have messed me up in the past so i dumped dem for gud.

VERY TRUE!

Yep, they r d best. I've used them since inception of gsm in nig.

Nekky said...

i stopped using airtel in 2008 buh frnds dat use it hardly ever complain. but even if airtel doesn't deserve,it certainly cant be MTN cos dose ones are broad daylight criminals.

What's My Name? said...

I think Airtel deserves the award. MTN and esp Etisalat have very poor network service.

Haba! Etisalat should be called to order abeg. I experience drop calls some times and most times the lines are not even clear.

BLOGLORD said...

Etisalat i think. airtel can win for cheapest talk time

Absolutely 100% true.......

the white enchantress said...

hmmmm .....well dunno but in the last weeks, MTN haven't being so stable sha.

I am, the no Sender said...

I agree. tried using ETISALAT and finally gave up on them. found it hard to access costumer care on their platform. can give them average performance. MTN is one network i won't even touch with a long pole and as for GLO? well someday they just might wake up to realize that they are meant to be the 2nd national carrier and that too late they lost the market.

I love Airtel for most of the reasons adduced for giving them the award. but more importantly, I appreciate the network because getting through to customer care is minutes away and so it's easy to present your matter and have them redressed. so, yeah they deserve the commendation

Anonymous said...

lol! FALSE!

Anderson Fox said...

Well, they might be the true winner. I have MTN and glo. MTN is the worst in terms of connectivity.Their on-net calls are messy, sometimes they will declear you SWITCH OFF. GLO custumer care is ever unaccessible but billing is perfect.

Anonymous said...

Linda i agree oo,had to move from mtn to glo,and now airtel & its d best even for my bis.

BLOGLORD said...

ATOBATELE,
Glo ke?
my bbm service was off for 48hrs thanks to glo. couldnt forward my biz presentation to my partners in the u.s
had to get an alternative to meet up deadline.
just leave glo outta it.
mtn the craziest.

Lib readers,most of una na bad belle!you can hug d transformer if u tink they aren't d best...and 2 actually tink dat most of dem don't av a fone o!talk more of a sim card.mschwteee

DEEFLAMEZ said...

Using the criterias NCC stated above, i'll have to agree...next is GLO or Etisalat...as for EmptyHen or MTN, they are just ironically full of MTNess *hissssss*

Anonymous said...

I still believe that Etislat is the best of the lot. Have you tried streaming youtube? Fantastic. No freezing or buffering. Call rate too is cheap. I pay 20k a sec to all networks.

Unknown said...

Well deserved... Proud 2 b associated with dem. May be the lesser of all evils, the other ones are sure good at what they do; d bright coloured one dat claims 2 b everywhere, only on our TV, radio, kiosks & billboards. Dat national carrier, they are just distributing wealth through those ineffective star studded adverts. I bet other networks spend less on advertising and achieve better results. D adverts can be weird & hilarious at times, go check out d last one by P square.

Anonymous said...

Yeah that might be true. I've been with them since the time of ECONET. Even then as ECONET, they give i think 20 free sms in a month and so many freebie which MTN didn't.

Now Airtell, calls are cheap, easy access to customer care service and they even loan people airtime now and u pay back installmentally as you are recahrging your line, so think the NCC is right.

Can't even go near MTN again cos they've always been expensive to use and they still are. *myopinion*

Their coustomer service response time is the best. Others engage in fraudulent promos sometime meant to fleece customers of their hard earned cash. But they have challenges of theirs too though...good luck to them on this one!

Yes sooooo airtel all the way have been using Airtel from inception from the days of Econet I have tried all the others and Airtel remains the best for me my most constant line verrrry Stable and pocket friendly ......I cant shout

Neva liked GLO,dunno y.MTN Sucks nd we al knw dat;Crazy tarrifs wen callin oda ntwrks,poor customer care etc. Etisalat is gradually winning hearts,wouldnt mind if they won bt Airtel?Hmmm...Fastest browsing speed yet,friendly cal rates bt stil major room for improvement.

Why not make a complaint rather than type crap. I can't deny I enjoy the quality of service. I wrote a mail to them about network in my area and it was rectified in 24hrs that is service. Not by writing bullsh*t and think that would help

The sage said...

Did u remove ur batry and fix back? It works back when dat happens. Av been using glo and its been generally fine.
I hav mtn too, but I use that only for family and friend calls, else its just to receive. The network crap and their looting is worse than politicians.

Well I use all networks for different reasons except airtel at the moment, even though I have used airtel in the past without issues. Yes I agree they are all criminals, but its a marketing strategy. When u get text mges from them to activate a service or promo, find out from their customer service before u go ahead cos the charges cld b crazy subsequently. I agree u may not reach their care centre ontime, but there are several mediums u can make inquiries, change ur language call frm english to a local one like yoruba or igbo just to get thru ontime and decide to speak in english wen u finally get thru, also ask for a mailing address to reach them too, go through their voice interactive response, dats another option. it is not until u talk to an agent directly. I swear the call centre is a market place and customers always get thru. There is no perfect service anywhere.

a lot of you making comments here are ignorant.most dont even have an airtel line!i have used airtel from its econet days.yes,they had issues with takeover etc but compared to the other networks in recent times,THEY ARE THE BEST!
