Do they have speed problems? Thought they have one of the fastest connections.

Best network by a country mile. The only network I exhaust data before well before expiry.

Add N500 to the 1k and you will get Airtel 3GB. And for all devices too.

Let them continue. At least it's a welcome development. Let them data-war so long as it brings abt the best in them. That's the power of competition. I'll be happier when it's 4 or 5gig for 1k.

etisalat must be super dumb. Why would i pay 8k for 8gb when i can sub 1.5gb for 1k 8times and get 12gb. Whoever reviewed this price no go school at all.

Not so fast.

You would be surprise that the higher data volume (8k =8gb) may have a different data rate calibration from the 1k = 1.5gb.

Etisalat is testing the package, they don't want to be like Airtel that just cancelled its time based data plan.

I guess if you have 8k to spend on data just do the 2k x 4 = 14gb.

David25:
that's funny. shouldn't that data volume increase as the price increase?

for example 2k for 3.5Gb

how is 8k _ 8gb? who worked this maths for them??

following the first arithmetic
4K should give 7gb
so 8k should give nothing less than 14gb. this is outrageous.

Yea. I'm sure Glo is waiting for Airtel to rollout theirs. Once that is done, Glo will further crash the data market with even more lower prices and high data volumes.
I predicted on the MTN data review thread that this process will continue until 3gb cost less than 1k with validity period of 30days across the networks. Let the war continue, it is for our good.

Unlimited 10k.

In addendum,

Why should i buy 1.5g for N1,000 * 8times. when i can do this;.

Buy 3.5G for 2K *4= This guves a total of 14G for 8k.

i think the person who reviewed the pricing did so. cause those are the most sold plan to the public

Why couldn't they come out with a more inviting package like say 2GB / N1000 to put them at a better competitive advantage than MTN and GLO . I guess they are not interested in getting new subscribers, they probably just want to discourage their current subcriber base 4rm porting.

How i wish DSTV will face this kind of competition.

Anyways, i am rocking MTN 750mb N500 weekly data. I finished the 750mb in 3 days and will buy another today. Its flexible and allows me get good data for N500 no sweating unlike before that i have to load N2,500 to get data.

Etisalat doesn't do that! Your 1gb is your 1gb. Tested and Confirmed! So yes, I will rather do the ₦2000 sub 4times and get 14gb.

It started with Glo, then MTN and now Etisalat have joined in the league of those offering 1.5GB data at N1000. Other plans have been reviewed also. 3.5gb data is now N2000. We're now waiting for Airtel to put some icing on the cake of their N1000 data. No dulling.
I think this is a welcome development. Let's hope it only gets better.
However, 5gb data and 8gb data remain ridiculously exorbitant at N6500 and N8000 respectively.

Guys don't let these telcos play on your intelligence, it's not about the price and the amount of data your given but rather the burn rate. Burn rate in the sense that when u download a file of 6MB how many MB actually leaves your data. Some device comes with data calculators, so this will further explain if this offer is beneficial of just another scheme. I remember downloading a file if 2MB and 2.7MB actually was deducted from my data balance. At the expiry of my 1GB, I discovered I used overall lesser then the 1GB but I got the expiry message.

yes o. Glo also started the 1k bb complete plan for 3G, though it is 1.4k now. By the way Glo's data is some what still cheaper. I can get 10G for 5k only ish is the speed which is sometimes slow.
