MTN reconnects customers to USSD, meets Banks tomorrow



MTN customers have been reconnected to banking channels after commercial banks had blocked them from using their channels, including the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data and banking apps on Friday.

The channels were blocked as a result of MTN reducing the banks’ commission on USSD airtime to 2.5 per cent.

However, following the intervention by the Minister of Communications and Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria as well as the Nigerian Communications Commission, MTN agreed to revert to 4.5 per cent commission.
