MTN Nigeria Unveils E-Sim Technology

Must read

MTN Nigeria has announced the trial of e-SIM services on their network based on approvals received from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

Electronic or e-SIMs are the next step in the evolution of Subscriber Identity Modules (SIM cards), and are designed to deliver unprecedented freedoms and flexibility.

Unlike the physical SIMs, e-SIMs are built into smartphones, devices and wearables.

They support multiple profiles and allow customers to connect multiple numbers to their e-SIM devices.

Notwithstanding the sophistication of e-SIMs, the onboarding requirements are the same as are required for a physical SIM.

Hence, SIM registration in line with existing regulatory prescriptions remain a requirement for activating a device embedded with an e-SIM.

e-SIMs will be useful for people who want to manage personal and business lines easily and effectively or want a separate profile for data.

The new technology will also be extremely convenient for frequent travelers and tourists, making it easier for them to opt for and keep a local subscription when visiting Nigeria.

MTN Nigeria said the e-SIM trial which kicked off yesterday will run for one year and is open to first come first served basis to a limited number of subscribers who own compatible devices.
