High Cost Of Data, How Do You Guys Cope? by StrongandMighty: 1:08pm On Sep 04, 2020
I just discovered that I spend More than 10k every month on data subscription. Not that I'm a heavy user, I just do basic stuffs like browsing the internet on my phone basically with opera mini, using WhatsApp, instagram and Facebook that's the only thing I do with data and yet I spend more than 10k on subscription.
Please how do you guys cope? I don't earn much per month, but data subscription is taking much from my salary considering how much I earn and you all know that a smartphone without data is simply useless...

For me, I use the MTN 1gb for #200. It's last 3 days for me. If I wanna download, I use MTN night plan which gives me 2gb for #200.

Use airtel my offer.

You could get 4gb at about N1500.

My offer lasts for around 9 months after which they'll revert to the normal charges. All you need do at this point is to discard the Sim and get a new one.

Remove Instagram from the list of things you do if it's not adding income to your life, and thank me later. Instagram is much worse than YouTube in data consumption in case you don't know.

If you’re a a business minded person you’ll know Instagram is the best place to make money. It’s not adding income to your life does not mean others don’t make a fortune from it

1. Don't spend more than 20 minutes on Instagram
2. Avoid those who post history videos of their ancestors or turn their WhatsApp status to cinema
3. Use an adblocker while browsing
4. ALWAYS download with WiFi if file size is above 100MB.

Spending 3.5k - 4k on data via MyMtn offer.

The one he's using on Airtel is a double data bonus which is completely different from MyMtn Mega DealZone.

The op asked for a way of coping with high data usage but you still had to poke your pointed nose into my opinion.

The fact that you make money on Instagram doesn't mean others do too. Some people just go there for fun and I wouldn't advise people like that to scroll carelessly on Instagram all day despite the data consumption rate. Go and enjoy the fortune you made on Instagram and stop bothering us on NL.

Besides, for one so learned, you completely overlooked the phrase "if it's not making you money on my post".
Kindly mind your business next time. Thank You
