If you’re a heavy user of the internet with tons of downloads to be carried out or huge amount of tasks that require the use of the internet, then you’ll most likely need an unlimited data plan so as not to keep checking your data Balance after each Download or just not worry about running out of data.
Now, not everyone is a heavy user, and for those people, data bundles are always available. Also, not all those who want unlimited data plans are actually heavy users.
Some people, like me, just like the comfort of not having to check for the remaining data balance from time to time. Not that we Download or stream a lot, although we might once in while but we just like the fact that we have the unlimited plan just in case something that requires it comes up. Also, unlimited plans are probably the only plans that you get to use until its expiry date without exhausting the allocated data – because there is no data.
Anyways, no matter what your reasons are for wanting an unlimited data plan, you’d be happy to know that we have quite a few available in Nigeria from different Internet network providers (ISP) which we will be going through here in this piece.
Unlimited Data Plans In Nigeria
Disclaimer: Before subscribing for any of the plans below make sure you put a call to their respective Customer care agents to confirm if where you stay is within their coverage area.
Swift Unlimited Plan
Swift is among the best 4G internet service provider in Nigeria and is what I personally use and recommend, that is of course if you’re within their coverage area. Their unlimited 24/7 plan goes for 19,500 if you already have their SIM or SIM+Mifi bundle. There is also a fair usage policy in place which caps the speed at 3MB/s. According to Swift, there is no data cap only the cap on the speed. You can also take the speed up to 6MB/s if you go for a more expensive unlimited data plan but I won’t recommend that unless you’re running a business.
Spectranet Unlimited Plan
Spectranet has only one Unlimited Plan (Unlimited Gold Plan) and it costs N18,000 for a month – 30days. According to Spectranet fair usage policy, they reserve the right to limit your Download speed to 8Mbps (Which is 1MB/s) when you reach the 100GB Download Mark.
Smile Unlimited Plan
Smile also has an Unlimited Plan call Unlimited Premium Plan which cost 19,800 and has a 30day validity period. It also has a fair usage policy in place which throttles the speed to 4Mbps (which is 500KB/s) when you use up to 80GB. Visit the official website on how to subscribe
