MTN restores services to Expresso

Telecoms

Subscribers of Telecommunication firm Expresso can now make calls to MTN following the decision of the latter to restore services to Expresso.

MTN on November 1, 2014 alerted its subscribers through a text message of its decision to block calls from Expresso due to the latter’s indebtedness.

Shortly after that, Airtel also blocked calls from its network to Expresso over similar concerns.

The National Communication Authority, NCA has since intervened to resolve the impasse between Expresso and the two telecommunication companies.

It is, however, unclear what exactly might have necessitated the latest move by MTN.

MTN has over 13 million subscribers on its network while Expresso has about 124,000 subscribers, according to figures released in August by the National Communication Authority.
