SEVEN weeks into its launch in Nigeria, the traffic generated by the Mobile Number Portability (MNP) scheme has not been significant, MTN Nigeria has said.

According to MTN, contrary to the industry’s preparedness and hype that proceeded its launch on April 22 in the country, the MNP benefits are yet to be fully explored by subscribers.

Explaining the scenario around the scheme Monday, MTN Nigeria’s Corporate Service Executive, Akinwale Goodluck, said that though the telecommunications firm has welcomed quantifiable number of subscribers into its fold, customers’ apathy have been increased by some factors.

Goodluck, who listed parts of the limiting factors to include issue of multi-SIM phones and the relative ease with which a subscriber can purchase a SIM cards from sales outlets, posited that the telecommunications firm is optimistic that the scheme will still experience a boom in the country.
