See Recession: Telecom to Block WhatsApp, Skype and Facebook Calls and Videos to Boost Revenue

This no longer news that economy downtime is becoming something else in the country and businesses do have limitation at this time, telecom industry have opted for a drastic measure which we think it is not going to be favorable to the masses.
All telecom companies are complaining of revenue losses from international calls and are scared they "may lose between ₦20tn and ₦30tn, or so, by the end of 2018”, having already loss over ₦100tn since 2012 hence by blocking subscribers from accessing Skype and other Over-the-Top services like WhatsApp, and FaceBook they may be able to recover their losses. This simply means that you’ll be prevented from performing certain functions like voice and video calls on WhatsApp and Facebook, among other OTT services.

"Telecoms operators in the country said that international calls made up a critical part of their revenue because of Nigeria’s large expatriate and Diaspora population. But right now, subscribers have opted for alternative to international calls by using Skype, WhatsApp call, Facebook Video calls etc… and its drastically affecting their revenue".

Sometime later year December Mtn urge to Block WhatsApp and Viber  that is affecting their business, could this be the end of Skype, WhatApp and Facebook Video Calls? We hope not.
