See Why Airtel 3G Unlimited Data Plans Came With Three Different Prices

Remember Airtel Nigeria launched its unlimited data plan giving the network users three options to choose from. You can see post HERE. The three data plans where all listed as unlimited as well as having three different prices. The action by Airtel has gotten a lot of people wonder why the difference in price if they are all unlimited. Here are the plans

1) N10,000 Unlimited Packages/ Validity is 30days
2) N15,000 Unlimited Packages/ Validity is 30days
3) N20,000 Unlimited Packages/ Validity is 30days

How To Activate Airtel Unlimited Data Plan

For N10,000 Unlimited packages, dial *471#
For N15,000 Unlimited package, dial *463#
For N20,000 unlimited package, dial *351#

If you are among those confused about the difference in price, this post will help you better explain it and also clarify any questions or doubt you may have. Here is the reason.

This plan comes with a fair usage policy. What this means is that, there are little condition attach to the usage of the plans and in this case, it is the speed. For the unlimited 10, which is the N10,000 unlimited package, you get full 3G speed up to 40GB usage, before you start experiencing a reduction in the speed. For unlimited 15, which is the N15,000 unlimited package, you get a full 3G speed up to 65GB usage, before a drop in speed. The same applies to the unlimited 20, which is the N20,000 package. For the Unlimited 20 package, you get a full 3G speed up to 100GB usage, before you experience throttling.

This is why the package comes in different prices. According to a customer care representative, the throttle speed is 256 kbps up till the end of the month.
