Which Data Plan Should I Go ForIn the part of which data plan/bundle to go for, I would have gladly ushered you into the Airtel 4GB For N1500 valid for 2month. But, sadly few weeks back, we got a heart wrecking news from Airtel about the discontinuation of the plan. This might be as a result of the introduction of the Airtel Android Data Plan Though we still don't know if they really meant it. Details of the discontinuation could be found here. So I am left with no other choice but to refer you to the once below:
1• MTN night plan which gives you a total of 4.5GB for N2500.
2• Airtel Android data bundles.
