“Can You Hear Me Now?” – Watch the Funny Animated Etisalat Advert!



Etisalat Advert - BellaNaija - March 2014002

Frankly we have all done this, and it’s not fun.

Proving that Etisalat is indeed the best network to use, the brand has released a funny animated advert that reminds us all of the “network searcher” within.

The tale follows a very enthusiastic businessman trying to let his client, Chief, know that the contract has been signed. There’s just one problem though, he isn’t using Etisalat and has horrible network. Watch as he goes to through a rather hard time searching for network.

    “He who lives in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”.
    This one Etisalat is yabbing other providers, it would be good to hear from people who actually use an etisalat line and can attest to the fact that their network is indeed better.

      I do use 2 networks which includes Etisalat. And I can testify. The ban/sanction on MTN by NCC to to sell sim cards for a month was due to poor network performance. So yea!!!

      Etisalat is by far the best network I’ve used since being in Nigeria

      Etisalat is the business, it has been tried, tested and trusted. This is coming from someone who had the misfortune of using Empty Hen (MTN) and Glo. My mum who used Airtel even had to port to Eti baby.

      I use Etisalat, Glo and MTN and can attest to the fact that Etisalat is the best of all 3. Clear sharp calls, nice rates and fast downloads. The only reason why I still have my glo line is because I’ve had it since I was an undergrad and its the number a lot of folks have; while I’ve had the MTN since I was in law school when MTN was the best network in Enugu. Nowadays, Etisalat is the line I recharge for calls, SMS, BBM and Smartphone data.

      Why don’t you switchyour GLO number to the Etisalat network? That way you enjoy the Etisalat service while still retaining your GLO number/digits. That is the thought behind Mobile Number Portability (MNP)

    Nice one! Proof to show that you don’t need those dry celebrities as ambassadors to sell your product! Just keep it original and fresh and people will like it! The best telecoms advert I’ve seen on Naija hands down!

      Maybe you are not a package that suits your budget. Migrate to EasyStarter or EasyCliq
