Data Plans Review
These data plans are the most used alternative plans in Nigeria, according to my statistics. You should cope with the downside while enjoying the advantages because all data plans, including the official ones also have downsides.
People keeps complaining that there is no more good data plan but is this really true? Yes, it was true but till recently as all network providers begins to launch new flexible and affordable data bundles for their customers.
If you are among those that are still complaining or looking for a suitable or fixed data plan to use on your network, I will be glad to introduce you to four best data plans you should start using in this month and more.
Moreover, these data plans have their good and bad sides. If you are able to cope with their bad side, you should be able to start using them immediately. Without further ado, let’s move to the list of these data plans.
1. Airtel 1GB For N350
The plan was recently unveiled by Airtel to attract more customers to their network. The question is that “does it really attract more members?“, that’s what we will find out here.
The advantage of this plan is that it gives 1GB massive data at an affordable and slash price of just N350 only. It’s economical in that sense but the disadvantage is that it valid for just 1 day.
Basically, if you are the type that have been urgently looking for a cheap data to download things, you can use the plan to economize things.
To activate, simply dial *141*354# and boom! You are done. Kindly dial *140# to check your data balance.
2. GLO 1.2GB For N200
In data volume, this plan is more higher than that of Airtel and in price is more affordable. No wonder it’s called the “Grandmaster Of Data Plans“. The additional 200MB and slashed price of N50 has a lot of useful things to offer you.
With just N200, you get massive 1.2GB without zapping. Oh! I forgot, it can also be accumulated. N1,000 can also give you 6GB data bundle after accumulation. However, the downside, is that it selects SIM.
Basically, is a plan that everyone wants to enjoy and activate but Glo has to select some people in order to boost their official data plans. If everyone enjoys the 1.2GB for N200, who will patronize the official data plans. Of course, no one.
To activate the Glo special data offer, simply dial *777# and select option “1,1,5,2 and 1” to activate. You can check your data balance by dialling *127*0# and that’s all.
3. 9mobile Special Data: 1GB For N200
I used this medium to remind you that 9mobile is not left out from the networks that dishes out Special Data Offer.
9mobile special data offers 1GB for N200. Forget the fact that the data offer strictly selects SIMs but it is still the fastest network when browsing the internet.
When I contacted the network provider on what it takes to activate the plan, they said they only give those who receives the message as SMS. Oh! Gosh! I and my friend activated the plan without receiving any message and I will also advice you to try out your luck.
The plan valid for 3 days. Should that also be the disadvantage, no! It shouldn’t be because 3 days is a way too long to exhaust the data plan.
The main disadvantage of the plan is the eligibility screening before activation, and the advantage is the continuous activation after eligibility.
To activate, simply dial *929*10# and voilà! You have activated the 9mobile 1GB with just N200 only. Check your data balance by dialling *228# and that’s all.
4. Airtel 6GB For N1,500
This plan has been available for a very long time now but it has a lot of disadvantages that may let you lose hope from activation. The 6GB zaps but slower though and activation is based on eligibility.
Everything with advantages do have disadvantages in one way or the other, the advantage is that it valid for 14 days (2 weeks to be precise) and it’s more affordable. With just N1,500, you get 6GB Data.
To activate, simply check your eligibility status by dialling *440*16# first without having airtime on your phone, if it says “insufficient balance“, kindly dial the code after loading N1,500 to activate.
Note: And also, if you receive a message about this offer, that also shows you are eligible for activation. Additionally, if you receive a message about 1.8GB for N500 by dialling *418*2#, don’t worry, they are also family.
I have listed the best and affordable data plans you should start using to minimize your money usage in data. They are flexible with one downside and advantages. Enjoy the pro while cutting out the cron.
