Earlier before now, we had stated that MTN BIS plan works on android using OPENVPN Application. We even shared a detailed tutorial showing you how to configure it alongside the config files required. However, for some time now, OpenVPN takes longer time to connect and when it finally does, it easily disconnects.

This isn’t new. It has actually been ongoing for a very long time now. I had to try it again yesterday in other to fully confirm before posting here because all these while, i have been feeling comfortable with the use of Glo Bis on my bb10 phone which i share to my android and computer.
