MTN Nigeria Plc, on Wednesday, began the trial of embedded Subscriber Identity Modules, e-SIM, services on its network, making it the first to do so in West Africa.
The eSIM, which was launched on Wednesday, will run a trial for 12 months.
According to Mazen Mroue, the chief operating officer at MTN Nigeria, the company received approval from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to conduct the trial.
The company in a statement said;
Unlike the physical SIM, you do not need to insert an eSIM into your phone as it is already built into your smartphone, device or wearable
You simply activate the eSIM with your account profile and you are ready to enjoy all the services you normally would with a physical SIM.
The eSIM is not like the physical SIM where you have to insert it in your phone, rather it is already built into your smartphone, device or wearable.
The introduction of the eSIM will offer customers flexibility, simplicity and convenience.
This is a further demonstration of our firm commitment to delivering the benefits of a bold new digital world to our customers; and we will continue seeking new ways to provide solutions that address old and new challenges, making life a little easier and brighter
The chief transformation officer at MTN Nigeria, Bayo Adekanmbi, while speaking at a virtual launch, said the eSIM is open to a limited number of subscribers, who own compatible devices and it will be on a first-come-first-served basis, adding that the compatible devices include Google: Pixel 3, 3XL and Pixel 4, 4 XL; Apple: iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS and XS Max, iPhone XR and Samsung: S20 series.
He added that the new technology would be useful for frequent travellers and tourists, making it easy for them to opt for and keep a local subscription when visiting Nigeria.
