Good news to those who have found love with airtel or who are used to browsing with airtel on their android devices as there seem to be a data plan which i would describe as the cheapest. Yes, the bis plan on airtel still works on android and PC without any special configuration and as a matter of fact, i am currently rocking the bis plan on my laptop since glo has been proving useless for some couple of weeks now.
The BIS plan on airtel goes for 1500 and with that, you get 2GB of data. For some sims, you can get 4GB of data for same 1500 and that’s pretty cool. For those who use their airtel sims in browsing on other devices like iPhone, iPad and computer, the bis plan is the most convenient on the network but if you are the type who only uses the sim in browsing on an android device, paying N1500 monthly might be rather much compared to paying just N100 weekly.
The cheapest data plan for android users on the airtel network is that of the N100 weekly. Yes, there is a plan on airtel where you only get to pay 100 naira weekly but its usage is very limited. As earlier stated, i will only advice this for those who use their sim only on their android devices but if you use your sim outside your android device, the normal bis plan is the best bet.
Airtel Cheapest Data Plan For Android Users – N100 Per Week Subscription
I don’t want to believe paying as little as N100 per week and 300 naira per month is on the high side for an android user. As a matter of fact, that is even much cheaper than what a blackberry user pays weekly or monthly.
The only downside is the fact that there are limitations to what you can do with this subscription. Just before i go into how to subscribe for this, let me point out that this is an opera mini browser plan. But it works with some popular apps like BBM, Whatsapp, Facebook app. The default browser on android doesn’t work with it but you can use opera mini browser as an alternative and Google Play store app doesn’t work with it either. If you are comfortable with it, then lets move on based on how to subscribe for this plan.
How To Subscribe
==> Dial *141*10#, click on ‘Best Deal‘
==> Click On ‘Opera Mini Bundle‘
==> Select Weekly which goes for N100
==> After successful subscription, you should be able to browse with opera mini and ping with bbm and whatsapp. You should be able to also chat on facebook using the app.
I have no idea on how much data is entitled to the weekly plan but one thing am pretty sure of is the fact that it isn’t unlimited. Hence, you shouldn’t go downloading everything downloadable. For the time been, you can flex that and if it exhausts before the week runs out, you can resubscribe.
