Nigerians get enough of cheap data offers, especially on wekeends, which is why we have compiled the juiciest cheapest weekend data plans for their consumption.
A lot of people have recognized that bandwidth is a very scarce resource. It’s not just an issue in developing countries like Nigeria where costs are prohibitive for most people. Here, data plans can still cost a fortune (and that’s without counting monthly mobile phone fees).
Another reason we need cheap data to surf the internet is because some people would otherwise not be able to afford it.
Some people who are just making ends meet don’t have a lot of disposable income and so they may not pay for costly data plans, at least may be not all the time, or get an inexpensive plan that offers only a few minutes of talk and text before going over their limit.
Currently the African population is continuing to increase faster than any other region in the world. As a result more people have access to cell phones therefore driving up the number of people using mobile devices and social media networks like Facebook and the telecom providers just wouldn’t stop leveraging this to get more subscribers by giving cheap data offers.
Because the internet is both expensive in terms of time and money, these individuals often look for cheap alternative data plans at least to have an enjoyble weekend.
We have compiled all of the best weekend data plans options from top providers in Nigeria, from Glo to MTN, Airtel, 9mobile, VDT, Smile, Spectranet etc.
