Etisalat reduces data bundle thus increasing price of Data Plans

While there seem to be a fierce competition in the telecommunication industry, etisalat deemed it fit to increase it’s etisalat data plans for android, iPhone and PC devices.

I mean, glo recently increased it’s data bundle for same price, and instead of etisalat to ‘kukuma’ stay in their lane, they decided to reduce the data bundle thus leading to higher prices.

Airtel and MTN still offers affordable data bundles. At least, compared to what etisalat is bringing to the table. It’d also be worthy of note that GLO, MTN, and Etisalat all have 4G LTE network services in Nigeria. We are still waiting for Airtel in this regards.

Before the change, these were the Etisalat data plans we were accustomed to:

  • 1.5GB for N1000
  • 3.5GB for N2000
  • 5GB for N6500
  • 8GB for N8000
  • 10GB for N10000

However, those have changed and below are the revised data plans as at October, 2016.
