MTN BlackBerry BIS Stopped Working On PC and Android, Here’s The Way Forward


During the early hours of Thursday 17th July 2013, MTN blackberry BIS stopped working on PC. Although as at that time, the BIS still works on android devices hence I was still able to browse on my SE Xperia android phone and PC by simply tethering the internet connection to my PC and other wireless devices around me using the hotspot feature on the phone.

Even as at that time, I had already received calls from two of my blog readers asking if I noticed MTN BIS was no longer working on pc. I told them yes but am still able to browse on my pc using my android phone so I cannot really ascertain if it could be network problems.

I made some investigations and realized that some people where still able to browse on their PC, and some were not able to browse on both Computer and Android. Well, the bottom line as at today is that, MTN BIS has totally been discontinued from both android and PC users, only bb phones can now browse with the BIS subscription.

MTN BIS No Longer Browsing On PC, Here’s The Way Forward

I have received so many calls since then from my readers asking if there’s an alternative now and I must say I truly appreciate you all. You give me the zeal to keep doing this i.e, bringing more information to your doorstep via trueinternetworld blog .

As at today been the 19th of July 2013, there are two options for browsing cheap on android and PC devices and its same thing we have been using before the MTN BIS browsing on PC without VPN Software was introduced.

Option 1:

Option one is using airtel bis. Airtel BIS still works very well on PC and I think this has been so for a very long time now. I wonder why other network service providers cannot follow airtel footsteps, all they know how to do is charge very high for little data given.

Option 2:

The second option is using MTN BIS On PC using VPN software. This was same thing we were using before BIS on PC without software was introduced and now that the doors have been shut, going back to the old style still works and willing to accept us back.

    Yes boss! The stone the builders rejected has now become the corner stone. Goiing back the old ways afta d new one has been blocked.
    Anyway, I haven’t tried it out bcos rooting my android phone is what is consuming my time and attention. I need a subscription on my pc to download ALL necessary files for rooting my device.

    1. Adeniyi Samuel says

      perhaps you can use a vpn alongside your bbc bis and download all necessary files to root your phone.
