Etisalat has now introduced cheaper data plans, which would obviously make life easier and more enjoyable for their subscribers.
With the continued proliferation of smart phones into the Nigerian market and most of the developing world in general, the hunger and need for data has been on the increase. You now find out that the old generation that were erstwhile used to Nokia 3310 and co are now making use of touch-screen smartphones and now paying for data subscription as well just to be able to keep up with what’s happening on social media, reading newspaper online and also catching some fun online as well.
There has been a clamour for data subscription prices to be reduced and different network providers have been heeding this call. This move by Etisalat to provide cheaper data subscription would also put them in good stead to be able to compete with their fellow providers when it comes to pricing their data subscription.
If you are already an Etisalat subscriber or planning to become one or may be you are already on the network, but not using their data service, then you don’t have to worry anymore as the data allowance of their different plans have been increased by as much as 75%. For example, the plan that costs two thousand naira (₦2,000) use to come with only 2GB data. However, that has taken a 75% jump from 2GB to 3.5GB. Similar increment went across board and there’s been a positive change on all their data plans.
