MTN Business Cloud Services Launched In Nigeria

MTN Business Cloud Services Launched In Nigeria 1
MTN Business has unveiled a new cloud delivery platform in
Nigeria, which will enable SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises)
access cloud services with greater ease.
The applications on the MTN Business Cloud Services platform
range from Security, Storage and Backup to Email Marketing,
Contacts Management and Accounting applications.
MTN Executive, Amina Oyagbola, said, “The launch of this cloud
service is a step in the right direction. It translates to facilitating
greater ease of doing business for SMEs whose role in creating
employment and empowering people cannot be overemphasized in
emerging economies like Nigeria. According to the World Bank,
SMEs have been recognised as a key sector in local economies,
particularly in emerging markets, where formal SMEs contribute up
to 45% of total employment and up to 33% of GDP.”
Based on a survey by SMEDAN (Small & Medium Enterprises
Development Agency of Nigeria), there are over 37 million SMEs
across Nigeria. Cloud platforms therefore represent a veritable
means to drive technological inclusion in this critical sector.
Onyinye Ikenna-Emeka, General Manager, Enterprise Marketing,
lauded the benefits of the service; “We believe that SMEs are
invaluable to the growth of the Nigerian economy. That is why this
platform was developed to address some of the challenges
experienced by our SME customers, in particular. At MTN
Business, we are aware that to enable the growth of this key
sector, easier access to solutions such as cloud, that drive
efficiency and lower costs is vital.”
Speaking further on the Business Cloud service which was also
recently deployed in Rwanda and Cameroun, Ikenna-Emeka said,
“We are pleased that this service, represents a move that
empowers SMEs to control their spend and usage. Through this
service, SMEs can choose from a range of applications,
subscribing to chosen applications when and wherever they want
without paying for the total cost of the applications. This way spend
is kept manageable. These business applications can be accessed
from anywhere at anytime and compete favourably with other world
class cloud platforms”.
MTN Business Cloud Services will be denominated in local
currency thereby making payment easy and services more
affordable. The roll out of the platform in other MTN markets is set
for the end of the year.

Almost 4GB every month probably because I have tons of contacts and clients I need to keep in touch with. I’d say the 9mobile free whatsapp offer is actually not bad.

But the question is this –

Is the 9mobile free whatsapp offer totally free?

Well the answer to that is No, it’s not. You would need to have another active data bundle before you can use the free whatsapp which means your data would be subtracted for every other thing you do apart from whatsapp usage.

If you are a 9mobile customer, you can simply subscribe using *200*3*1#

According to 9mobile, The WhatsApp offer is certainly a novel one as it allows their customers to put their data to other uses while they enjoy chatting and bonding with friends and loved ones on WhatsApp for free.

The offer also empowers customers to promote their businesses using WhatsApp as data which would have been used up on WhatsApp can now be used for other things with the free WhatsApp offer by 9mobile..

Normally when it comes to cheap data plans I always tell people that Nigeria is one of the countries with the cheapest data plans in the world and I haven’t been too far from the truth. Take a look at at this graph from Statista.

Countries With The Cheapest Data

Countries with the cheapest data plans

Nigeria ranks 4th in the list of selected countries with the cheapest data plans.

While a gigabyte of data would set Italian smartphone users back $1.73, the same amount would cost $2.22 in Nigeria, $2.99 in France, $6.66 in the United Kingdom and $6.96 in Germany. Costs are even higher in North America where they average $12.02 in Canada and $12.38 in the United States.

So should we give our Network Providers some accolades for giving us the cheapest data plans in the world?

Nope. Definitely not worth a standing ovation especially if you check the fact that we have one of the slowest 4G speeds in the world.

Nigeria’s top 4G speed is placed between 9.5Mbps and 16.2Mbps, while Algeria’s slowest speed of 2.6Mbps is the worst in the world.

However here’s the plot twist, the country with the slowest 4G speed – Algeria’s top download speed of 16.4Mbps still beat the fastest speeds in Thailand (11.7Mbps), India (14.6Mbps) and Nigeria (16.2Mbps).

Now I feel they only deserve the accolades for constantly zapping our data. Nevertheless I feel ISP’s in Nigeria can definitely do better than this.

Cable.co.uk also revealed a more comprehensive list.
