Cheapest and Fastest Data Networks / Data Plans In Nigeria
|Cheapest and Fastest Data Networks / Data Plans In Nigeria by Blogger: 11:34 pm On January 14, 2019|
In this post, we are going to compare the prices of different data plans offered by the major Nigerian Networks (MTN, Airtel, Glo and 9Mobile) so as to ascertain the cheapest and fastest Network for data subscription and online browsing.
Different Networks in Nigeria have their own data subscription plans. However, all the Networks still have some elements of similarities in the data plans they offer. For example, there is no network in Nigeria that does not have a monthly subscription plan for its data as well as weekly, daily and night browsing plan.
Because of this connection, it may appear difficult to say that this network or data plan is the best and cheapest at the same time. When we talk of a network or data plan being the best, we not only consider the price but also the availability of the network in different parts of the country. For example, it is a known issue that Glo has a sluggish network in many parts of Nigeria. But it is also a known fact that Glo always provides its customers with amazing data bonuses. With these two contrasting features, one cannot just come and say that Glo is bad or good.
Being good or bad, therefore, depends largely on the user as well as the user’s location. While many criticize Glo for their sluggish network, I am here enjoying it because the network is available in my area.
That being said, it is also important for users to know how many gig bytes of data each of the Networks in Nigeria offers for their monthly data subscriptions so that you can determine which one is cheapest, fastest and best for you.
When I travelled to my village, I was surprised to see how strong 9Mobile internet connection was there. It was full everywhere. However, because I had fallen in love with Glo, I did not even mind checking the current price of 9Mobile data plans. It was a shock to me when a friend of mine revealed to me that 9Mobile was doing promo and as such offered cheap data plans that couldn’t be compared with Glo. Since the network was fast there, I did not waste any time to switch to my 9Mobile SIM.
I believe you can see some reasons why you should not only read this article but also bookmark it on your browser.
