A smartphone without internet or data is like an ordinary torchlight phone that is why most smartphone users try everything possible in other to have an active internet data service in their devices. Without data, there is nothing like facebooking, twitting, using whatsapp, Instagram, BBM, telegram or surfing the Internet for information like you are doing right now. This is how important Internet data is to us.
Cheap data plans
You need a lot of information to climb above your peers in this our generation and the easiest way to get these information is via the Internet which is filled with any information you can imagine of. A good use of the internet can change your whole life for the better.

However, most users wish to have a lot of data (MB) on their mobile phones and PC but due to the high cost of subscribing to data packages in Nigeria, some people withdraw and start managing the meagre 10mb allocated to every recharge of N100 which is mostly used for chatting because it is too small for browsing. Many Nigerians are still complaining of the expensive nature of data subscriptions in the country when compared to other countries but it seems both the network providers and Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC) haven't heard the yarn of the masses.

Having said that, there are still "affordable data plans" on various networks in Nigeria including MTN, Airtel, Glo and Etisalat that can suite your need, whether you are a heavy downloader or a fair internet user. Remember that these plans are official. Some people prefer the official data plans in other to run away from the hassles of tweaking.

Though tweaking gives you the most affordable and free browsing tricks to browse on your devices but not everyone is comfortable with that. So this article can guide you to make a better selection when it comes to data subscription and packages. Follow me along as i show you these "cheapest MTN, Etisalat, Glo, Airtel data plans for 2017". Before you are through with this article, you must surely find the best data plan for you on any network


1. MTN CHEAP DATA PLANS (click here for latest plans)

MTN Daily Unlimited Data Plan:
Do you know that you can brows and download unlimited on your MTN line with just N150? I recommend this plan for heavy downloaders and internet users like me. I recently tried this package on my main MTN line but it wasn't eligible so i used my second line and it was successful. I used up to 7GB in just 5 hours because the MTN network in my location is cool. The data is unlimited and valid for 24 hours, after which you will be deactivated.

How will i activate MTN Unlimited daily data plan? To subscribe to this plan, load your MTN line with N150 and dial *567*59#. This package works on all smartphones, PC and iOS.
Unfortunately, it selects SIM, that is to say not all MTN SIM cards are eligible for this package.

These two data packages were recently introduced by MTN and it offers more affordable data than the previous packages. In fact, these plans is a thorn on the flesh of data resellers who use to sell 1gb for N800. Now you get more cheaper data officially from MTN direct.
