Recession: Telecoms To Block WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook Calls And Videos

As we all know that Economic crisis in the country is really hitting businesses hard to the extent that telecom industry have opted for a serious plan which might not be favourable to the masses.

Telecoms companies are now complaining of the revenue losses from international calls and are afraid they may lose between N20tn and N30tn, or so, by the end of 2018. Their plan now is by blocking subscribers from accessing Skype and other Over-the-Top services like WhatsApp in order to recover their losses.

This means that you won’t be able to make calls or video calls on WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook and other OTT services.

Telecoms operators said that; the international calls is really affecting their revenue because of Nigerians large population over foreign countries and right now, subscribers have opted for alternative to international calls by using Skype, WhatsApp call, Facebook Video calls e.t.c and is really affecting their revenue.

What do you have to say about this? Should they make this move to stop Facebook video calls and other OTT services?
