Zain introduces N1,000 Monthly Internet Access

Casual internet users on the Zain network can now take advantage of Zain’s monthly ‘Zain Lite’ plan at the cost of only N1, 000 monthly.

From Zain:

“Get connected to high speed internet access monthly on your phone by activating GPRS on your phone, recharge with N1000 and migrate by dialing *141*712*4#”

This gives the subscriber a 30-day subscription with a 100mb data cap, so it is perfect for casual internet users for on-phone usage only. This plan suits those who use the internet mostly at the office but would love to be able to check the odd mail, check out their favourite mobile-friendly discussion forum (stay with mobile versions of websites only!), and get bite-sized information once in a while and during weekends outside the office.

Good move by Zain!

PS: Zain, you still need to extend your EDGE, 3G and 3.5G coverage within Lagos please!

    Hmm! Just what the doctor ordered! Running this package with opera mini will suit me well.
    Nice move, Zain! But please work on your coverage: I still have not seen the 3G signal symbol on my phone!!!

    Wow! This is a welcome move by Zain! It makes economic sense & its quite convinient. I think i might re~consider trying to activate my Zain line. I would love to see similar data plans by the others maybe even weekly packages – that would make more sense than the current daily plans!

    Brym, I haven’t seen that 3G icon/signal either. Worse, I hardly see the EDGE icon/signal too 🙁

    I have a Zain Data Sim Card. Can i use it for the Lite data plan or is it meant for only the normal sim cards ? Also does any of d 3 other networks offer a similar data plan ?

    Azeez, if you can use your data SIM for other plans, I’m betting that you can for Zain Lite as well.

    Nope; none of the others have a similar package to Zain Lite at the moment. But if history is anything to learn from, we can expect one or two others to do a copy-cat job soon 😀

    Chikere, the service is available everywhere Zain has GPRS/EDGE/3G/HSDPA coverage. And yes; you can use a phone with built-in modem to use the connection on your laptop.

    Zain lite is a nice plan.
    You can use it on your phone and also on your laptop or desktop.
    All you need is a modem or use your phone as modem if you can.
    The only thing is its speed.
    I suppose they should increase their 3G coverage.
    Zain na Baba.
    I use it on my phone.

    Zain mobile internet has come to stay. I’ve been using it for close to two months and i’ll say I made a wise choice.
    I use it with opera mini and e buddie for browsing and chating respectively, it’s really a superb combination.
    It’s a wonderful world from zain .

    good day
    pls i wud like to use zain lite on my pc, but i m so scared cos of the 100mb although i just plan on using it for normal net surfing and no downloads. is it a pc friendly package?

    Enoma,

    Zain Lite can be used on your PC, but you need to remember the 100mb limit. 100mb can disappear quickly if you visit heavy webpages.
