Meanwhile, the cost of 9mobile data plans & subscriptions are little higher than that of other networks namely; MTN, Glo, and Airtel, nevertheless, it still provides assurance in terms of connectivity speed better than the others, thus giving a strong alternative, especially when you need a fast and reliable internet services.
9mobile, like we said earlier, is the recent name given in place of the former Etisalat Nigeria, which, according to findings, was in a serious debt crisis of around $1.2 billion region, and had to be sold to Teleology Holdings during the early 2019, since the company had only been able to pay around 42% of the loan.
The name ‘9mobile’ was been used based on the 0909ja brand Etisalat built and the evolution of the network over the period of 9 years, in which Mr. Boye Olusanya was appointed as the new CEO and Mr. Joseph Nnanna was appointed the Chairman of the board. The company also changed its colors and states that the new colors represent vibrancy, dynamism and life.
These evolutions in the company, therefore, affected some of their products, some data plan volumes were increased while prices remained the same, and some were left the way it was. Hence, the reason for the expensive nature of their plans.
