9mobile has joined the likes of MTN in using the new eSIM technology. As we all know, eSIM is a software-based digital chip that comes along with a device directly embedded by the manufacturer. eSIM replaces the traditional physical plastic SIM card for compatible devices and brings a whole new spectrum of benefits and possibilities.
