It is a known fact that MTN Nigeria has stopped the double data promo on all new customers. However, those who were lucky to do it in April before it got stopped, are still eligible to use it for the next six months. Glo also once effected a data slash on their data subscription about a couple of months ago, however, am happy to tell you that Glo is back with double data (Albeit with a caveat). Airtel is currently doing their full double data promo for all customers for the next six months. In this article, I will arrange and discuss how you can get on either of this packages with the subscription ussd code. I will start from the cheapest. It is also worthy of note that despite the fact that Etisalat is the most expensive data network in Nigeria, they also do not offer and data promo of any sort. Happy reading
HOW TO GET DOUBLE YOUR DATA SUBSCRIPTION ON AIRTEL NIGERIA
Airtel Nigeria is currently on a 6 months promo for their new and existing customers. To opt in please dial *144# then select your preferred plan. #1,000 will give you 3gb, #2,000 will give you 7gb while #2,500 will give you 10gb. You can check your balance by dialling *140# This is valid for six months
HOW TO GET DOUBLE YOUR GLO DATA FOR AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF MONTHS
To opt in into glo Nigeria reworked data, dial *777#. To check the data balance, dial *127*0#
Here are the conditions:
- New Customers will get double data (i.e #1,000 for 3.2GB , instead of 1.6GB)
- If you are an old customer, you will also continue to enjoy the old data plans (i.e #1,000 for 3.2GB data, e.t.c). This will happen only if reload or autoroll your data within a three days period of grace from when your original data validity expires. The best way is for you to never allow the plan to expire before renewing it. If you FAIL to renew your subscription within that 3 days period you will no longer be able to enjoy the old data plans. The next time you subscribe, you will get HALF the data volume at the same price (i.e #1,000 for 1.6GB data , instead of 3.2GB).
- Other plans include #2,000 gives you 3.75 x 2 = 7.5gb
- #2,500 5gb x 2 = 10gb
- #3,000 6gb x 2 = 12gb
- #4,000 8gb x 2 = 16gb
- #5,000 12gb x 2 = 24gb and so on When this will expire has not been disclosed yet.
