We received the following heads-up from deoladoctor earlier this morning:
I just got an sms from airtel on my airtel line thus:
“Internet plan for smartphones now available on Airtel! Enjoy 1000MB data allowance, valid for 30days, at N1000 ONLY. Activate now by dialling *141*712*4#”
Meaning their 1Gb for a month is now reviewed downward to N1000. I am currently on the same 1Gb/30days for N3000 hence have to wait for expiration before trying out this new rate. Pls confirm if you have not got the sms yourself.
We haven’t confirmed this independently, and we ask that you holla if you have any further info on this. The smartphone plan used to cost N3000 monthly till now. However, if this price slash is true, mobile internet in Nigeria will simply never be the same again.
