MTN Nigeria has announced that its services would be unavailable to subscribers on Tuesday.
The network provider said in an SMS to subscribers on Sunday that the shutdown of services was to enable the upgrade of its system network.
This means 81.21 million telephony subscribers and 64.06 million internet subscribers will experience service downtime on the said date.
The message read: “Dear customer, you may experience some difficulty using MTN services on November 8, 2022, from 12:00 a.m. to 7.00 a.m. due to a system upgrade. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.”
This is the second time in two months that subscribers of MTN Nigeria will be informed of a system upgrade after a similar exercise on October 6.
MTN Nigeria has come under criticism from subscribers lately over the quality of its services.
The mobile telecommunication giant suffered a nationwide downtime for about four hours on October 10 last year.
