Airtel Nigeria has recently introduced unlimited data plan to its teeming subscribers in Nigeria. The Airtel unlimited data plan comes in three different categories at different prices.
What is not clear as at the time of writing this post is why there are three different unlimited data plans if they were truly unlimited? One point we can take from this is that Airtel unlimited data plan is capped and not truly unlimited but we are yet to know the data allowance allocated to each of the three data plans.
Apart from the newly introduced unlimited data plan by Airtel, there are a couple of other data plans you can subscribe to, we have written extensively on cheapest Airtel Data plans in 2017 and there’s Airtel night plan as well. Therefore, if the unlimited data plan is quite expensive for you, you may check out the affordable ones here.
AIRTEL UNLIMITED DATA PLAN 2017
Airtel Unlimited Plan (N10, 000)
AIRTEL unlimited data plan comes in three packages and the least expensive among them is the N10, 000 own. But considering the socio-economic situation in Nigeria, this is still quite unaffordable for an average Nigerian. How many people can afford to spend N10, 000 on data every month? Quite an insignificant percentage of the total population if you ask me.
But be that as it may, it’s good news that Airtel has joined the likes of Spectranet, Ntel and Smile 4G that have unlimited data plan. Compared to other network providers, Airtel unlimited data plan is no better in term of pricing and quality.
The Airtel unlimited plan 10 costs N10, 000 and the validity is 30 days.
Airtel Unlimited Plan (N15, 000)
This is the second unlimited data plan from Airtel and the validity is equally 30 days just like the first one. This internet plan is known as Airtel unlimited plan 15 because the price is N15, 000. What we can say about this second data plan is that its data allowance might be higher than that of the first one and it should be faster too. So you get what you pay for. As is the case with other 4G LTE Internet providers, the speed of your data becomes slower and slower as you get closer to or exhaust the data allowance, so the same thing applies here
Airtel Unlimited Data Plan (N20,000)
This is the most expensive out of the three and is expected to be the one with the most data allowance. It is known as Airtel unlimited 20 because it costs N20, 000 only. The validity is still 30 days just like others. So let’s go straight on how to subscribe to Airtel unlimited data plans
