Gradually, surely and steadily, the price of data plans is reducing. It has always been my dream that one day we will have to pay N1000 for 1GB worth of data, and it appears it’s now a reality. Within the last week, Etisalat started sending out texts to customers. The text goes thus:
Get 1GB data for N1000 Now. Dial *229*2*7#. Data plan is valid for 30 days.
So once you dial the code, the data is yours. It seems this data plan works through eligibility, so if you haven’t received the text yet, it means you’re not eligible. This is a welcome development, especially for us, the users. Data resellers will frown at this because the higher data allocation is spoiling their business. Let’s see how MTN, GLO, and Airtel reacts to this.
