But why the sudden interest in increasing data volume? Something fishy is about to come to the fore.
Yeah, Ntel is the new kid on the block to roll business soon, so me thinks others are waking up before Ntel steals their customers.

You've said it! 8 times. You think it's everyone that has time to be recharging and reactivating?

Add N500 to the 1k and you will get Airtel 3GB. And for all devices too.
Bro don't tell me you are still living in the stone age period o. The airtel BlackBerry data @#1500 for 3gig is a plain scam..... FOR EVERY 1MB YOU USE THEY DEDUCT 2MB(double) FROM UR DATA BALANCE, which means that by the time you've used up 1.5gig ur 3gig would have finished. You can do the math yourself... For the new MTN 1k for 1.5gig, they deduct the data normally and likewise etisalat too.. SO WOULD U STICK TO THE LIE AIRTEL SELLS TO YOU OR GO FOR REAL 1.5GIG DATA AT A LESSER PRICE? YOUR CHOICE

Now that the NCC has lifted the unfair embargo on MTN indulging in any marketing campaign and engaging in price wars all in the name of them been the "dominant" player in telecoms, we should expect more earth shaking occurences like the crash in data prices.

The lifting of the embargo has removed Etisalat's unfair advantage and now we the customers will begin to enjoy the dividends of a truly competitive industry.

After buying airtel sim with #15000 I just found out this morning that etisalat is now 1.5gb for #1000 but I would still prefer airtel #15000 for 3gb than that of etisalat #1000 for 1.5gb

no differentiation all of dem rolling out the same plan. smh at least one of dem shud come up with the idea that a day afta the 1.5gig plan is exhausted, subscribers have 1day of unlimited downloads.

would you believe that if they try that with Nigerians, they will try to download the whole 7Star hotel and River Niger b4 the end of that day?

grin grin they no know Maths, 8k should give like 15Gb so people will prefer to spend the 8k at once to get extra 3Gbs.

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.
you'd be surprised how many ppl do not do ijebu calculations or don't read fine print or do'nt want load multiple times

I subscribed 1.5k for 3GB on a non-BB device only for it to get exhausted at a phone data usage of 1.47GB!!! Na the "innovation" or brain making plan be that?? After contacting the Airtel Care, they could only say they count their data specially for Android devices as the plan was originally intended for Blackberry devices.

Needless to say, that was the first and last time I tried out that plan. "Not all that glitters is gold" and "cheap things can be very costly" are two chronically wise sayings.

Silly comment. Some things have changed here as 1gb was 1k b4 but now it's 1.5gb. 2gb was 2k but now it's 3.5gb. If that isn't change in your eyes then u must be more stupĂ­d than you realize.

Child of shame.

U should come out from under the cave you are living.


With *555*...#, I double my recharge 1500 * 2=N3000
That comes with 1.5GB free.
Then subscribe for the bb plan 1500=3GB

Balance = 4.5GB and N1500 bonus.

I have other lines I use as well. I stopped using the glo two months ago. No matter how much they cheat, So far, this still beats the others when it comes to the lower monthly plans for now. Will switch as soon as the plan becomes redundant(which is the way of airtel).
So y'all should verify stuff first b4 screaming bloody murder.

PS: Why is it you guys can make a point without insulting someone? A simple thread of comparing data plans has turned into insults.
