Would You Pay N17,500 For nTel's Unlimited Data Plan?

They started with N10,000 and Nigerians were like:

It was later increased to N12,500 and some of us were not happy about it:

… But it didn’t stop us from renewing our plans.
However, it is now at N17,500:

N5,000 more than the previous offering.

Some Nigerians right now.

I am not sure what brought about the increase (I’d reach to nTel and update this post accordingly), but going by the rants on Twitter, nTel customers are looking to port.
For a bit of comparison, Smile currently has an unlimited data plan for N19,800, which is restricted once you exceed 60GB, but words on the street have it that nTel’s unlimited plan is also capped at 90GB, 30GB more than Smile’s offering. With that in mind, would you be looking to port?

    Those prices are still better than those of Spectranet. With unlimited plans I think some of the service providers limit upload/download speeds too. Ultimately I think it depends on one’s reasons for selecting such a plan.

    I don’t think i can pay such huge ammount of money all in the name of unlimited browsing and if i have the money i will go for airtel which is 1000naira,so to me ntel should do a rethink on this their new development if they really want customer to patronize them,love to get more usefull article from you.

    How will some one pay 17500 naira all in the name of unlimited browsing, i think a rethink should be done by them before they lost all their customer.

    Currently flexing my Airtel Unlimited plan.
    If they like, they should make it $100/mo. IDGAF RN!
    Good thing Airtel will soon start rolling out LTE.

  12. LA says:

    If ntel want to make more money, they should expand and market aggressively instead of harassing their current client base.
