Airtel Now Has A 3GB Data Plan For N1,000

It feels that GLO and Airtel are in a race to be Nigerian’s cheapest Telco when it comes to Data.

Airtel's 3GB for N1,000

Airtel’s 3GB for N1,000

The company – Airtel – recently launched a new data plan that will give you 3GB worth of data for only N1,000. The data will last for a month and is open to all and sundry.

Airtel users who want to subscribe should dial  *431#. To check your balance, dial *140#.
Right now, which Telco has the cheapest data plan?
UPDATE: I just confirmed from an Airtel customer representative and it appears the plan isn’t made for smartphones, the existing N1,500 for 3GB was recommended. 🙁

    Airtel is the cheapest but I’ve heard many of their customers complaining of fast/quick data reduction.

      I wonder. It’s truly disturbing. Glo has cheaper data + seriously bad data network.
      Airtel has joined the wagon but it’s as good as a hoax. It’s like giving a baby N5 & taking N500.
      Why won’t MTN & ETISALAT join this cause I’m tired of using Glo and their slow data network.

    Abeg, I’ll jump and pass over this one. Cheap data from Airtel? Well, I don’t doubt it, but what I’m sure of is the useless and horrible nature of their data service. Once upon a time, I was gifted by Airtel with 3GB of data. Trust me, I replaced my sim less than a week after trying out the nonsense. After just a week, I was only able to use less than 300MB. I’m always online and staring at my phone for a download to complete is not my thing. Airtel and Glo fall into the category of networks that put me through such pain.

  12. I wonder where you guys got this Info,i called 111 and it was confirmed not to be a normal data plan,but a BB complete ,and by extension the burn rate on other devices will be like speed of Light.
    i was told *435# is the code for normal 3GB of N1500
