Smile Communications Nigeria is the latest and one of the most expensive Internet Service Providers in Nigeria with one simple promise: FAST INTERNET YOU CAN RELY ON!
In December 2015, they rolled out their Unlimited plan at the ridiculous price of N19,800($73) for 30 days. A large majority of its users jumped on this plan because it made the most sense but to the shocking disbelief and downright frustration of its users, within days of activation an ISP that recorded a whooping speed of 21 Megabytes per second was reduced to 4.732 kilobytes per second.
All attempts to rectify this has proved abortive and it was later learnt that Smile had knowingly reduced the speed of users to mitigate its usage and maximize it's gains.
Internet in a country like Nigeria is fundamental to its growth and economic advancement, from youths who want to remain connected on social media networks, to young professionals who curate their market news and updates through various platforms to Small and Medium Sized businesses who deploy internet technologies like Xero, Glip, Spree to stay ahead of the curve. Smile has an obligation to its users to keep to their promise.
