While we are still trying to fully absorb the new data plans launched by Glo which so far, tend to be the most affordable, Airtel is launched something more interesting.

Airtel has launched new data plans which offers 2GB plan for N200 and 6GB plan for N500!

Airtel 2gb for n200 and 6gb for N500

As catchy and tempting as these plans sounds, there’s a catch! Just before you go thinking otherwise, these ain’t the usual suspects; Night and Weekend plans. No, they are not.

They are usual plans with validity periods. So, what’s the catch?

Wait for it……………… The plans only work on 2G network. Yes, Airtel doesn’t want you to download heaven and earth. Neither do they want you to watch your life history on YouTube and other video sharing sites. Instead, they probably do not want you to even consume the allocated data before it expires.

BTW, as indicated in the screenshots above, the N200 plan has a validity period of 14 days while the N500 plan has a validity period of 28 days. More so, activating these plans automatically deactivates any existing plan.

Now that you know this, are you still interested in the plans? If yes, simply dial *482# and follow the on-screen instructions to subscribe to your preferred data plans.
