The race for data supremacy in Nigeria appears to be narrowing down to just MTN and Airtel

The battle for supremacy in Nigeria’s Internet market is changing its major combatants as recent trends suggest that the country’s biggest telecom carrier, MTN, has left Glo behind in the data race and may finally be catching up with Airtel.

According to the latest industry reports from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), MTN got the lion’s share of Internet subscribers in the month of October (488, 120), edging out emerging data giants, Airtel, that managed 420, 031 subscribers for the first time since it lost almost 200, 000 subscribers in June 2019.

By contrast, Glo seems to be losing ground in the data race as it lost Internet subscribers (155, 118) for the second month in a row, while 9mobile is seemingly unable to keep its head above water with a loss of 156, 065 Internet subscribers.
