Sincerely i do not know the reason behind the sudden increase in etisalat data plans, some say its because of the newly unveiled 4G LTE service in Nigeria, which came up some few weeks back. But i do not see this 4G LTE stuff as a reason because arguably Etisalat is the fastest network for the Internet especially in terms of downloads and streaming. Well to conclude this increase is not fair at all, i will prefer they reduce it soonest because they might loose some users who can not afford it.
Doing a comparison on etisalat amd glo networks, we can say glo is by far the cheapest in terms of data plans. Etisalat 3.5GB data plan goes for N2,500, meanwhile Glo offers 3.2GB data for just N1000. But we know the problem with Glo network, in terms of poor 3G coverage and also slow download speed.
Below Are The New Increased Etisalat Data Plans and Prices:
- 1GB is now for N1000
- 1.5GB is now for N1200
- 1GB + 500MB night plan is now for N1000
- 2.5GB is now for N2000
- 3.5GB is now for N2500
- 2GB + 1.5GB night plan is now for N2000
- 1.5GB was for N1000
