My experience with the Airtel N100/1GB Weekend Plan

Last weekend, Airtel launched a very juicy weekend plan for uses in Nigeria. This plan offered a whole 1024 MB of data for just N100. Sounds too good to be true right? 🙂 We were all concerned about genuineness of this data plan, based on past experiences with Airtel. I decided to give this a try and see how it goes, After all N100 isn’t much of a loss, and here’s my verdict:

I subscribed on Friday evening, at about 6:30 pm. Messages immediately started rolling in. “Wow!! so this plan truly works” I thought. I was able to load a few webpages too. On getting home, everything seized. Nothing opened, only WhatsApp messages were puling through. Chai!! I don fall mugu 😀 Even after rebooting, same trend continued, I just vexed and dropped the phone.

At exactly 12:04 am Saturday morning, web pages started opening again. This time it was super fast. I went ahead and switched to download mode. I was hitting speeds of 300-700KB/s not bad at all. Saturday surprisingly, the thing worked without slowing down, no network down time. I now found myself trying not to finish the data prematurely 😆

Even till Sunday, it worked with no form of breakages or throttling. Here are a few pointers to note:

In conclusion, this plan works. If you had doubts before, they should be cleared now. Nice one from Airtel. I just hope they let this last. Meanwhile, it would be interesting to see how other networks react to this.
