- Telecommunication giant MTN Ghana has been sued for failing to instantly provide a service a customer had paid for
- The customer said he bought data via mobile money but did not appear to get his purchase
- He is demanding GH¢100,000.00 compensation from MTN Ghana for the delay in crediting his telephone number with data
An upset customer sued telecommunication giant MTN Ghana for failing to instantly provide a service he had paid for.
The customer, Paul Parker Atitsogbui, said he bought data via mobile money but did not appear to get his purchase.
Atitsogbui is demanding GH¢100,000.00 compensation from MTN Ghana for the delay in crediting his telephone number with GH¢10 data.
He claimed that he bought an internet bundle on November 28, 2021, between the hours of 1:00 pm and 1:10 pm.
Although he received a prompt message that the transaction of 971.82MB at the cost of GH¢10.00 was successful, the data never reflected on the phone.
He said the data took about an hour to reflect in his account after complaints.
MTN explained that the data was credited but used up by a phone update.
But Atitsogbui insisted that he should have been notified of the purchase being credited.
