Zain Monthly Unlimited Internet Access

Posted by

Zain now offers a monthly unlimited internet access plan for offices and homes. Called Zain Premium Plan, there is no monthly data cap on this service, similar to what CDMA networks like Starcomms offer. Finally, a GSM network steps up to the “unlimited” plate.

zainThe package costs N15, 000 per month. all you have to do is load N15, 000 worth of airtime, and then dial *141*712*5# to activate the plan. Once activated, the subscriber has one month access to unlimited internet access.

Speed and performance depends on location, as Zain 3G is very limited at present. But outside of 3G coverage, subscribers will be able to browse via EDGE (180-240 kbps theoretical maximum speed), or GPRS (70 kbps theoretical maximum speed).

This is a good move by Zain. Now, if experience is anything to go by, we should expect the others to photocopy and join the unlimited bundle bandwagon. Which is not a bad thing at all. The consumer wins!

Ahem! In the meantime, we hope that the guys at Zain are working at providing wider 3G coverage. This is 2009, guys, and crawly GPRS is killing… slowly…


  1. I guess its just a marketing strategy to answer their competitors. There really nothing new, creative,or innovation involve in their services. I’m yet to see any present service (of the operators) that comes from them thinking ‘outside-of-the-box’.,and i doubt will see any for a while. Unless they stop ‘chasing each other’, and think more about their customers real needs -instead of going for the money.

  2. placing the price for 24 hours under the unlimited version would actually bring a lot of attention, like that of the starcoms and multilinksm they have their 24 hour price range for 500 Naira, if such plans can be made for zain, it would be my pleasure to keep and invite a lot of my friends into the network too|!
