5 Cheapest Data Plans to buy in Nigeria

Finding the cheapest data plan in Nigeria is not as easy as it sounds, especially if you’re living on a budget. We’ve decided to put this piece together to show you the 5 best cheapest data plans you can subscribe to today. Every mobile network in Nigeria (MTN, Airtel, Glo, Etisalat) have been taken into consideration when compiling this list.

We can all come to a consensus that the prices of data plan are high in the country, which is why most people like me shop for the affordable and best ones. All data plans listed here works perfectly on smartphones, tablets, computers and all other gadgets that support cellular.

MTN 2GB for N1200

This is one of the 5 best cheapest data plans you can subscribe to right now. With just 1,200 Naira, you’ll get 2GB for 30 days. For budget users, 2GB should last you a month surfing through the internet. Since you’re a budget user, you should avoid high data consuming platforms like YouTube and Instagram. Dial *131# on your MTN SIM and follow the on-screen instructions to subscribe to this monthly plan.

Airtel 2GB for N1200

MTN are not the only network provider with the 2GB for N1200 data plan, Airtel Nigeria also has the exact same plan. Get 2GB data for just N1,200 on Airtel just dial *141*120#. The validity is also for 30 days. With Airtel, there is always a plan for you but this has to be the cheapest and valuable monthly data plan they have right now.

Etisalat 2GB for N1200

We have another network provider offering the 2GB for N1200 data plan, and this time around it’s Etisalat Nigeria with the same 30 days validity. The telecom company has one of the fastest 4G LTE networks in the country and am a testament to that. Etisalat offers its customers what is known as “Upfront Bonus”. You’ll simply get up to 50% data bonus when you buy a plan higher than your existing monthly plan before its expiration.

Glo 1.6GB for N1000

Widely regarded as the “Grand Master of Data”, Globacom Limited offers 1.6GB data for just N1,000 with a validity of N30 days. One of the sweetest things about this data plan is the extra 200MB you’ll get upon renewal. So before finishing the first subscription and you renew the data plan, instead of 1.6GB you’ll get 1.8GB. To buy this data plan, dial *127*53# or Send SMS “53” to 127.

Airtel 1.5GB for N1000

Just like the 2GB for N1,200 data plan, Airtel is not the only telecom company offering this 1.5GB for N1,000. It’s also available on MTN and Etisalat network. Apparently, Glo doesn’t have such a data plan at the time of writing this article. Anyways, you can get 1.5GB data for N1,000 on Airtel by dialling *141*100# on your Airtel SIM. It’s a monthly data plan, so validity is for 30 days.

This is the 5 best cheapest data plans you can subscribe to right now. I talked earlier about how you should stay off high data consuming platforms like Instagram and YouTube with these plans. If you love visiting such platforms, then subscribe to a night plan or social plan. For example, Airtel has a data package called “Instagram Bundles”, it gives you 1GB data for N200 to access Instagram for one day. Etisalat offers a night plan from 12 AM to 5 AM, which costs N200 for 1GB.
