In its continued drive to lead digital transformation, Foster inclusion, improve customer experience and maintain the highest quality of service for its customers MTN Nigeria Plc (MTN) today announced the trial of e-SIM services on their network based on approvals received from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

The next step in the evolution of Subscriber Identify Modules (SIM cards), e-SIMs are designed to deliver unprecedented Freedom and flexibility. Unlike the physical SIMs, e-SIMs are built info 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 remains a requirement for activating a device embedded with an e-SIM.

e-SIMs are particularly 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 travellers and tourists, making it easier for them to opt for and keep a local subscription when visiting Nigeria.

The trial which kicked-off on Wednesday will run for one year and is open on a first come first served basis to a limited number of subscribers who own compatible devices.
