I guess, at this junction, it’s safe to say Airtel is being affected by the change Nigerians are facing. Earlier on, the telecommunication company reduced the data allocated in it’s 20GB for N200 plan. And now, this.
If you use Airtel during the night for downloads and sorts, especially for it’s cheap night data plan, please be aware that Airtel has increased the cost.
The night plan that used to cost N50 for 1.5GB has been increased up to N200.
Although, the change hasn’t reflected on the company’s website, technically, that’s the new charge. The customer care attendant confirmed it.
Hence, if you use Airtel’s night plan and you are wondering why your effort to subscribe isn’t going through with your N50 balance, it’s because the cost has been increased.
Of course, you still get same data allocated (1.5GB), time factors hasn’t changed either. However, price has changed.
It’d be recalled that etisalat recently joined the night gang offering 1GB of data for just N200. And compared to the competition, that was pretty expensive. Well, I still think it is. However, there isn’t much difference between both data plans anymore. Well, 500MB is still a whole lot.
Now, that’s a whole lot of options to choose from, if for some reason, Airtel just placed you on vexing mode.
