CHOOSING THE BEST DATA PLAN OR BUNDLE IN NIGERIA
Most adult Nigerians have to face the challenge of finding the best data plan for their mobile and PC.
In Nigeria with so many Internet Service Providers, ISP and each provider have crafted their own package. More often than not, to maximise profit and target a certain demographic of society.
It can be very frustrating in this modern digital era, you cant send an email or view one because you have run out of Internet Data. To be honest, many of internet Data plans are crafted in a very clever and cunning way.
Afterall, the Data plans providers in Nigeria, their number one goal – is to maximise profit. But they are taking Nigerians for a ride. Usually as an Internet Service Provider, you should have few plans with very few restrictions.
The regulators should look into this, all the DATA Providers in Nigeria, having so many plans with loads of restriction on each. Most of their motto will read to serve customers blah blah. But their data plans or bundle says otherwise.
In this kind of environment, it is important to be in the know. Targets the data or bundle promotion, if there is any. Most data providers runs promotion now and again to lure new customers or keep existing.
Also beware of the small print, the headlines might say huge data for a small fee. But the small print might restrict you, to using the data only at certain time of the day or only on certain devices.

All the data plans from the different ISP in Nigeria are cleverly crafted with HUGE Caveat on all.
When you can use your data, how and device you can use it on. You should not necessarily go for the cheapest data or bundle package, rather the data plan suitable for your needs with less restrictions.
With cheapest option, you have loads of restrictions and before long. You will be topping up again. You will end up spending more.
