    Competition is good. U get free sh*t. MTN just gave me 10 useless mb 4 borrowing #750 & refusing to pay back 4 ova 3 weeks. Awesome

    Like seriously, NCC What tha heck have you done??…i am quite overwhelmed by the recent improvements in data, and now it seems all these telcos are now on a level playing field, therefore it all comes down to the “Burn Rate”, how fast would these guys respectively zap and suck your data?? Find out as you subscribe on their various platforms! Tank Yo!….#MissTechyForever

  8. Mazino says:

    The competition is really hot..It just like the EPL. MTN rolls out cheaper data plan, etisalat follow, glo and airtel..

  9. Airtel N2500 is same thing as glo..It good there is high competition.

  10. Xino says:

    this competition is good (not good enough for the cheaters *wink*) i just hope the data alocated depletes at a normal rate of 1:1 (phone data calculation vs network data calculation)

  11. Samm says:

    Burn rate is the Koko
    And Airtel has a bad record in that area

  12. Harrie says:

    Airtel!! There’s always a catch when it comes to airtel, you either don’t receive full value for dough or it doesn’t live long enough to get your fingers into in, we’ll just have to see how well it burns,

    If all the providers follow MTN in a ‘me too’ strategy there is no competition yet. Nigerians deserve much cheaper data!

  14. bolade says:

    MTN is still th most reliable mobile data subscription provider in nigeria. They are every where you go.
