Posted by

A year after commercial launch in Nigeria, 4G LTE operator, Ntel has announced new tariffs for its Smartphone Unlimited data plans. The new unlimited data tariffs are as listed below.

The New Ntel Smartphone Unlimited Tariffs

  • Smartphone Unlimited Monthly: up from N10,000 to N12,500. 30-day validity
  • Smartphone Unlimited Weekly: up from N3,000 to N3,750. 7-day validity
  • Smartphone Unilimited Lite: up from N1,000 to N1,500 weekly. 2-day validity

Ntel had introduced the unlimited plans in 2016 as a 3-month Data Test Drive promo, but kept them running after the initial 3-month run. The operator recently introduced capped data plans and new data/voice combos. These run parallel to the unlimited plans.

While Ntel unlimited data plans are not capped, there is a daily usage threshold at which point the connection is throttled. The operator’s fair usage policy does not state what this threshold is. The original fair usage policy stated that during peak periods each day, any subscriber who has used a total volume of 3 GB will be slowed down to 512bps.
