This article is all about how to get a reasonable data bundle at the rate of N1,000 from the top telecommunication service providers in Nigeria.
Yesterday, May 1, Nigerian workers cried out for increament in their take home as the current one could no longer even feed a politician’s dog as stated by Senator Shehu sani.
However, most of them have phones that could access internet which they used to get the latest update on thier request for upgrade of the wage.
For people with smartphone and those that only read news online like my mother (hardly facebook or watch youtube), I think with N1,000, they can get something like 1 – 1.5GB or more for their use.
Checking our top four telecoms service provider in Nigeria below, Airtel, Etisalat, Globacom and MTN Nigeria to know what N1,000 will give us:
Airtel: N1,000 can fetch you 1.5GB (Android 1.0) valid for 30 days. Simply dial *496# to subscribe.
