9Mobile In Trouble Again As New Owners ‘Teleology’ Pull Out Of Telco 1

The new owners of 9mobile, Teleology Holdings, have reportedly withdrawn from further participation in the 9mobile project according to exclusive reports from an insider.

Teleology acquired 9mobile, formerly knows as Etisalat, in November 2018 — about eight months after it made an initial $500million non-refundable deposit to acquire the telco, and a cumulative 10 months after the takeover was billed to have been finalized.

Teleology Holdings, a special purpose vehicle comprising telecom industry veterans and led by Adrian Wood, pioneer Chief Executive Officer of MTN Nigeria, eventually won the final bid — ahead of Airtel, Globacom, Smile, Helios.

Teleology Holdings’ successful bid for 9mobile was due largely to the quality of its proposed seven-man management team led by Wood and was approved by the NCC Technical Evaluation Committee, the 13-member bank lending syndicate as well as the acquisition finance provider, Afreximbank.

HOWEVER, IT WAS GATHERED FROM REPORTS THAT TELEOLOGY HOLDINGS HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY UNCOMFORTABLE WITH ACTIONS TAKEN OUTSIDE OF THE AGREED BUSINESS PLAN, SINCE TAKEOVER, MOST IMPORTANT OF WHICH IS HOW IT HAS BEEN BLOCKED FROM CONCLUDING A MANAGEMENT SERVICES CONTRACT WITH THE LOCAL JOINT VENTURE, TELEOLOGY NIGERIA LIMITED.

THE MANAGEMENT SERVICES CONTRACT WOULD HAVE ENABLED TELEOLOGY HOLDINGS AND ITS TEAM OF EXPERTS OVERSEE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ITS ELABORATE BUSINESS PLANS INCLUDING FUNDING PROPOSALS — BUT THAT SO FAR BEEN IMPOSSIBLE.

Wood is understood to have resigned from the boards of Emerging Markets Telecommunication Services (trading as 9mobile) as well as Teleology Nigeria Limited and has already communicated his current disenchantment with the 9Mobile project to his confidants in Teleology.

ACCORDING TO WOODS, 9MOBILE IS AN EXCITING OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD A REVOLUTIONARY MOBILE NETWORK THAT COULD BE THE PRIDE OF NIGERIA. Unfortunately, IT APPEARS THAT WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE. WE NOW MUST STAND DOWN FROM FURTHER WORK ON THE 9MOBILE PROJECT.”

9mobile woes appear to continue and we pray it surpasses all these challenges.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 12

If there’s anything you need more aside from food, then it’s probably data.

Civilization has gotten more digital than ever, tech has rapidly evolved – so as apps. And regardless of what uses these apps provide, most of them need our mobile data to run efficiently.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 13

Mobile networks are aware of these, and the cost data is obviously getting less expensive than it was. Thankfully, no matter what part of the world you’re in, there’s always a data plan for everyone.

But still, there is still a way to get the most out of your data plan without unnecessary usage that you might not even be aware of.

Now forget what similar articles you might have seen before, if you follow these two simple tips, you’ll definitely notice change in your data exhaustion rate.

1 • Turn off Apps Background Data

As simple as this may seem, a lot of individuals don’t even know this. Turning off background data for some certain apps can save you a lot of money not just data only.

Reason is, some apps use your data even if you don’t have them open. It all happens in the background.

Here’s how to turn off apps background data.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 14
First, go to Settings, then to Apps

Click whichever app you don’t need background data

Below the app details, click data usage

Click on the toggle beside the background data

And Voila!

You can do these for as many apps you wish not to use your data unnecessarily in the background.

2 • Install Datally

Datally is another app from Google with the initiative of conserving more data for its Android users. The app is lightweight, its latest version is just little above 5MB.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 15
Adding to this, it comes with a bunch of useful features like data saver that allows you to block data background usage or unwanted notifications from apps with ease, and also a detailed statistics of your data usage.

My favorite feature is the Bubble that gives real-time data usage of the app you’re using at that moment

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 16
One tip though (more like an advice), if you’re at any point managing data stay far from YouTube. But if you still have the itch to watch youtube video, go for the lite version of the app, YouTube Go. Because I heard some people only get their senses back with the “your data is remaining 100MB” message. 🙄

Okay that will be all for now. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to assist.

Thanks for reading, hopefully I’ll see you in the next post.

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.
