Nigerians drag Airtel over internet connectivity meltdown

Nigerians have taken to social media to criticise telecommunications network Airtel following downtime in internet connectivity on Thursday.

The red network’s internet connectivity froze on Thursday afternoon for a couple of hours from 3pm, leaving millions of customers stranded and frustrated.

Many of the customers have observed that the network’s internet connectivity struggled last month, culminating in a total meltdown on Thursday.
