DECEPTIVE MARKETING: CASE STUDY OF TELECOM SERVICE PROVIDERS IN NIGERIA. By: Tola Odusote

For how long are we going to suffer deceptive marketing from telecom service providers in Nigeria? I need urgent answers now.

They keep on promoting data services that are not there; ripping off hapless consumers. Their brand promise is never validated by what customers experienced. As at last count, I have purchased at least 5 internet modems namely: Multilinks, Starcomms, MTN, Airtel, Etisalat.

I keep buying the moment I hear juicy campaigns from them; campaigns promising seamless service. i rush to buy new modem after so much frustration from the last one subscribed to. At the end, it is same frustration: no signal, no service, and no connection.
