Airtel Nigeria have come up with an outrageous list of Data plans that will wow Nigerians. One thing is certain about these Airtel cheap data plans;it will serve as a competition to other data providers such as GLO, ETISALAT and MTN in Nigeria. SEE: AIRTEL 6GB FOR N1500 HERE
I won’t be surprised that Airtel stepped up because GLO just recently launched their cheap overload data plan. One thing I found amazing about this new Airtel Nigeria latest Data Bundles is that it works on all Devices whether Android, Blackberry, IPhone, just name it.
The Airtel latest New Data Bundles Plans are 6GB For N500 and 2GB For N200. Yes I didn’t make a mistake, it even surprised me when I tested the 6GB for 500 naira Airtel Data Plan. It worked perfectly well on my Gionee Marathon M5
Most people would love to know whether it is just like MTN cheap data plan that works only at night. No, this New Airtel cheap data plans, currently works both day and night. It also works on all AiAirt SIM both new or old.
Below are the latest Airtel bundle plans and their activation/subscription codes, validity period and how to activate them.
List of Top Airtel Data Plans in Nigeria 2017
To ensure that this article is easy to navigate, I would be categorizing the subscriptions based on their validity periods.
Prior to now, the norm is this category of data plans from Nigerian Mobile internet providers had been 10MB for ₦100, which honestly was pure BS! However, this is not the case with the following Airtel daily Internet bundles.
50MB for ₦100
Airtel has bumped up this cheap data plan allocated to the daily ₦100 plan all the way from 10MB to 50MB. This plan is valid only for 24hours and the subscription code is to use this plan is to dial *410# on your phone.
200MB for ₦200
It is valid for 3 days and you can surf the internet with the 200MB allocated to you for ₦200. However, I advise you consider the next bundle (plan 3) before subscribing to this; To subscribe, dial *412#
5-Star Pack 25MB (5MB daily) for ₦100
Although this cheapest Airtel data plan allocated to this bundle compared to the first bundle listed is small, I find this one particularly interesting.
For ₦100, you’d get 5MB every day for 5days to surf the internet.
This could particularly be useful for those folks (mostly old folks) who just go online to read “the punch” and check “who is doing birthday on Facebook today”.
Airtel weekly data plan includes
750MB for ₦500
For just 500 Naira, you can surf the internet for 2 good weeks with 750MB backing you thanks to Airtel’s “Easy” internet bundle. MTN has something similar, but Airtel’s is better because of the 2 weeks validity. To subscribe Dial *418#
The internet subscriptions for Airtel also features monthly packages that users can enjoy. Plans in this category are one of the best in Nigeria relative to what other Mobile Internet providers offer. Although most of them are Airtel Android data plans, as earlier said, they’ll work well on any device.
1.5GB for ₦1000
Airtel offers you 1.5GB worth of data for ₦1,000. This plan is their Android 1.0 plan but as stated on their website, this plan works for all devices. I have tested it, and it truly works and unlike their blackberry plans, the data consumption rate is reasonable.
What I mean is, you get an actual GB of data even when not on Android, and the plan is valid for one month. To opt-in to this plan, dial *496#
3GB for ₦1500
For ₦1500, you’d get more than double the amount of the data allocated to the cash equivalent of the previous plan which is also valid for 30 days. This plan is perfect for the everyday internet user who sometimes stream videos and download clips. To subscribe, dial *435#
This plan is awesome no doubt, but before subscribing, have a look at the next plan.
5GB for ₦2,500
More like an extension of the previous data bundle, for another ₦500, you get an additional 1.5GB data allocated to you. In essence, for ₦2,500, you get 5GB to surf the web anyhow you want for 30 days. To opt-in to this plan, dial *437*1#
7GB for ₦3,500
Power users will consider this a nice budget plan in that with this bundle, you can surf the net anyhow you want on your smartphone, stream YouTube till your battery bleeds (don’t try it o) or tune-in to NetFlix any time you wish.
For ₦3,500, you get 7GB of data which is valid for just one month. To subscribe to this bundle, dial *438#
Although the next 2 plans might not strike you as being “reasonable”, power users (bloggers and internet marketers alike) would find them interesting.
10GB for ₦5,000
Valid for 30 days, you can get 10GB for just ₦5000. This should be perfect if you’re an online freelancer or a blogger. To subscribe, dial *452#
16GB for ₦8,000
Also valid for 30 days, you get a staggering 24GB for ₦8,000 . To opt in, dial *460#
250MB for ₦300
We’ve left the “GB” category.
This bundle is Airtel’s famous Opera monthly bundle – this bundle has actually saved my life a couple of times……………..
Let’s deviate a little
There was this one time that I was dead broke, but coupling Airtel’s Opera monthly plan (₦3H) and their WTF monthly plan (₦2H) I was able to stay online a full month (well, 25days) for ₦5H.
The Opera bundle was for checking emails, Quora, Nairaland and my favorite tech blogs, while the WTF bundle was for WhatsApp, Twitter & Facebook.
Now that you’ve seen the value of the plan, you should know that this plan only works for opera mini. Opera mini is very good at data compression, so trust me, if you are not downloading, 250MB will take you over a month.
Yes, over 4GB incoming data compressed to under 500MB. If that’s not impressive, then I wonder what will be for you. To opt in to this bundle, dial *885*1#
