I know right? It will still get better. But for someone like me that has burned 6K of data in less than 3 weeks.
Airtel 3K5 for 9GB (stopped working tho) and 2K5 for 4.5GB. And the speed is less than 1MB/s.

I rather pay 10K. For unlimited. And 5MB/s+

Oga normally 1MB/s is enough for day to day use, I used MTN today though i got 2mbps.download and 2+ mbps uploads. Average thats getting 256KB/s... .. Which worked flawless. I worked from home today...

I bet you after 1 month you will get bored with your unlimited internet... I work in an office where internet is unlimited.... What I was wishing for long time after sometime you get bored..

Just Imagine what you will do with 5 Terabytes of data cool

'Oga', Get bored of Unlimited Internet. LMAO! I'm guessing all u do is Facebook, BBM, Whatsapp yes? And maybe download those 100MB movies from fz.

I'm an I.T guy, there's nothing like getting tired of unlimited internet. LOOL! What does that even mean? So i rather have limited than unlimited? Where I'll be checking to know my data balance after every activity. I have ALOT of things to do with internet.

- Android SDK updates
- Android Studio updates
- XDA Developers ROM updates
- I never watch any movie below 720p. It must be at least x265 (x264 preferred but na condition). If the movie ain't 720p, I'll wait till its available. Most of my movies are 1080p.
- Windows Updates
- PC Games downloads/Online gaming
- PS4 Games downloads/updates. And system updates
- Mobile phone app updates
- TV shows updates daily
- YouTube Tech Channels streaming
- Tech launch live stream

Ideally, no limited plan less than 10K in Nigeria can actually do for all i need. If you ain't a tech guy, u might not really understand. Because even people that just love movies so much, the hardcore ones... even they will understand what unlimited net means.

On a final note, i think it's really sad that unlimited internet is a 'luxury' in this part of the world. It should be basic. But oh well!

See my type of guy here.
Even when Etisalat had her payg plan going, i was busy with the kind of stuvs you listed up there especially with YouTube and you know how much skill you could learn off YouTube. When it comes to movies be it regular movies or series even during data drought i don't go less than 720p and it must be BRRip and i don't even want to talk about tutorials downloads and games.

Those who get exhausted when using unlimited Internet don't do much just basic Facebook, Twitter and what not buh don't underestimate our porrn addicted brothers as they've got a fair share of on time.

I don't know if I'll be in Abuja soon though buh when im coming I'll tag along my 2tb hdd, my 300whr laptop external battery pack and my Aliexpress gotten 4g lte fdd modem and a couple of racks. That's how I basically roll.

Sorry bro. It's not 4G LTE supported. It's HSPA+ supported. I use it for my normal data.

Because,
1. I can use my data with more than one device at once (Phone, PC, PS4).
2. On phone using wifi and setting the phone to 2G Only Let's the battery of the phone last. Than using the phone on 3G. The battery of the MiFi is what is being drained more, not my phone smiley

Something that would not last. Imagine someone wickedly downloading 22gb of illegal data... nigerians have the skills to misuse every good thing given to them.. an average whiteman cannot use 27gb a month and they have internet unlimited for years now. Look at this Nigerian, he was given it for just a few days and he is already thinking of downloading the world.. very unfair!

As an IT guy you should understand very well that wireless techs as last mile to customers is more expensive than wired techs. Unlimited Internet services abroad are typically deployed using wired services. Check the prices for 4G unlimited services abroad (if you even find sef) they are high compared to wired services.

For those who don't know Ntel, it's a telecommunications company that provides 4G LTE-A Internet at 'arguably' affordable rates. I guess the idea of this thread is to focus on the 'arguably'.

-They are currently only active in Abuja but Lagos and PH are very close, according to their customer care, lagos is only a few days away-

I did some simulations and calculations of how much you how much data you can pull using Ntel.
Realistically and Mathematically. Keeping in mind that you'll use Ntel for purely downloading purposes. I really don't think you need to consider Ntel if you don't do alot of downloading or huge data demanding activities online anyways. As the Reception can't backshift to 3G or 2G. U are also going to need a 4G capable device be it a phone or 4G USB/MiFi modem.

Let me also add by saying, i am in NO WAY affiliated to Ntel. I'm neither a staff nor any marketer of any form, I'm just an I.T Guy and a 'Concerned Citizen' lol.

Read below and tell me what you think.

Realistically:
Let's say the reception where u stay and/or work isn't so good, you still get around 5MB/s give or take. At the rate, u are doing 300MB/min and then 18GB/hr. Since we are being realistic, considering network fluctuations and what not. Realistically, we'll say you are doing 15GB/hr.

And Realistically, you get to download 12 hrs in a day. Let's take work days for example when u go to work and u leave ur downloads to run in the background of ur computer while u work, even when u go for lunch break, it's still on ur table, in the office downloading. So 8am to 5pm. 9hrs.
U get home at 7pm and continue. 3 more hours. 10pm u are tired u want to turn off ur computer and sleep (Realistically). That's our 12hr mark.

15GB x 12 = 180GB (1 day)
In 3 days = 180 x 3 = 540GB.
In 7 days = 180 x 7 = 1260GB.
In 1 month = 180 x 30 = 5400GB.

Let's just approximate it and chalk it down to uncertainty or other factors

Realistically...
500GB for 3 days.
1.2TB in 1 week.
5TB in 1 month.

Mathematically:
You download for 24hrs a day and your network is perfect so steady 10MB/s. Let's assume it's a weekend or u on leave or you are jobless (lol). There's sha nothing stopping you from taking it personal because you want to must use it to the maximum. That and we being mathematical smiley You leave ur downloads to run even while you asleep lol (i know I've done it many times - IDM scheduler FTW!)
Which means u get 600MB/min and 36GB/hr
For a day, mathematically and without factors
36GB x 24 = 864GB/day
In 3 days = 864GB x 3 = 2.6 TB
In 7 days = 864GB x 7 = 6.05TB
In 1 month = 864GB x 30 = 25.9TB

So... Even taking the mathematical scenario and mixing some real life factors like nepa and i don't know.. Anything else... I'll approximate also just less aggressively.

Mathematically...
2.5TB in 3 days.
6TB in 1 week.
25TB in 1 month.

So at least for the first 3 months when u get TRULY UNLIMITED and no fair usage to hold you back.

1K2 for 3 days
3K for 1 week
10K for 1 month

Considering what you can 'possibly' gain...
Is it expensive?

- Share if you think my calculations and simulations are Genius. smiley cool
- Like if you think I'm Crazy! tongue

If you feel it's both, i think we are on the same side anyways. Loool. cheesy

That only applies after the first 3 months of usage. I did mention that. For the first 3 months, no fair usage.

Apelex:

3K for 1 week. 10K for 1 month. Even compared to what Swift, Smile and Spectranet are doing at a slower rate. I think it's the best option. If you can get good reception and whatnot.

We saying the exact same thing with different worlds. Because it's not common here that's why the 'opportunity' should be taken with both arms. Even both feet! Because this is Nigeria, we know it can go away as easily as it came.
If we are used to unlimited internet, if it wasn't so much of a luxury... Then maybe we won't think of taking it 'personal' while using it.

On a final note, I'm friends with so many white tech guys. I know people that use tens of GBs daily. Hundreds on some days.

Yes oh. Stick to what satisfies ur needs. Why pay 10K a month when u can have 4.5GB for like 2K5 these days... Dats what i use on airtel. Sadly, isn't enough for me tho. Hardly lasts a week.
