Best Affordable Data Plans For Android, iOS and PC Users

I guess you’re probably thinking of a good and cheap data plans for this month, you’ll need a lot of it. It can really be frustrating at times when you buy a monthly data plan only to use it up the next day, is that one a monthly data plan? Well, I guess we don’t see sweet data plans like that of Ntel which has now been revised and totally not cool for me. If you purchased the Ntel wawu sim back in early and mid-2018, you know what I’m talking about. Ntel monthly family data plan remains the best but we don’t want to spend 17k just to be online every day for a month, no, but, if you’ve got some serious work or business to run, I’ll suggest you got for it, you won’t regret you did, trust me.

That been said, we’ll be looking at the best affordable data plan for Android, iOS and PC users from top service providers in Nigeria.

Cheapest Data Plans For Android, iOS and PC Users

Just before you start reading, how many of you guys still miss simple server, tweakware, anonytun vpn, psiphon handler and others?😁 I can’t help but say a big thank you to those guys for making browsing so cool.😂 Well then;

MTN Nigeria

MTN has unveiled several cheap data plans and some of the best options are 1GB for N200 7days data plan, 4GB for N1000 monthly subscription and also 250MB for N100 3days plan.

You can as well activate 100% double data bonus on your sim if eligible and enjoy double data bonus for 6 months whenever you purchase a monthly or weekly plan.

Dial *131*65# to subscribe to any data plan of your choice and *131*4# to check your data balance.

However, to enjoy the 6 months double data offer, it’s preferable to get a new sim as existing subscribers will not get this offer, so, if you’re using a special SIM to browse, it’s not so bad if you get a new one, you’ll be entitled to free 4GB data on activation plus 6 months double data offer.

So, let’s say you subscribe for a 10GB data plan, you’ll get another 10GB bonus = 20GB and so on.


Glo is undoubtedly the best when it comes to internet data, they have an amazing and cheap data plans. The only downside is the network strength when surfing the internet, although this is not the case for everyone as you’ll enjoy the network in certain locations. So, if Glo network is very strong in your location, then Glo I strongly recommend you change to Glo for cheap internet subscriptions. Just like 9mobile Ramadan special data offer, Glo also offers a 1.2GB data plan for N200 and it last 3days and there’s a 5GB for N800 12days option too, sweet isn’t it?.

It works on all devices, whether 3G or 4G devices but 4GB works best.

This plan is best for heavy data users, it will save you some cash while giving you a huge amount of data to browse. If you’re not using the Glo OgaSim bonus offer package already, I’ll suggest you do now. Glo Ogasim gives you 125% bonus data😮, whenever you renew your current data plan before it plan expires. You can kiss being low on data bye bye…

Let’s say you opt for a N1000 data plan, you’ll get 4.8GB. N2500 will give you 14.4GB which will last you a whole month and most interestingly, you can rollover, so there will be no case of I didn’t finish my data😁.

Airtel NG

Airtel uses, if you’re still on 3G, I’ll suggest you go swap to 4G right away so you can also enjoy cheap data plans and “crazy” offers like 600% bonus on airtime, double data bonus + 4G data bonus + Android data bonus. New Airtel 4G SIM will enjoy this offer for 3month.

Users will get up to 8GB for N1000 Plus free N3500 airtime to call any network and up to 17GB for N2000. While you can’t use a device to get this bonus twice, you can go the old fashion way by changing your device imei number and get a new Airtel 4G SIM once you’ve used up the offer on your current sim.

However, you can still enjoy the double data bonus and airtime without changing your device IMEI number only that you won’t be credited with free 4G because you can only get it once.

Dial *141# to subscribe to any package you wish and your bonus is guaranteed.

YouTubers Data Plan

Airtel did a great job introducing the YouTube data plan. For every YouTube plan you opt for, you’ll also get a normal Android bundle that can be used for other app and we. So, if you’re a Youtuber, then this plan is best for you:

  • N1000 will get you 4.5GB data (1.5GB android data + 3GB YouTube streaming)
  • N2000 will get you 9.5GB data (3.5GB android data + 6GB YouTube streaming)
  • N2500 will get you 15GB data (5GB android data + 10GB YouTube streaming)
  • N3500 will get you 17 GB data (7GB android data + 10 GB YouTube streaming)
  • N4000 will get you 19GB data (9GB android data + 10GB YouTube streaming)

Each of the data plans is valid for 30 days but the downside is, the YouTube free data is only usable at night.

To subscribe, dial *323# and follow the onscreen prompt.


9mobile, as we all know, hasn’t been doing great since it arrived in the internet data segment but one thing I love about this company is data, it has a good coverage and you can enjoy browsing with it anywhere. But recently I’ve been experiencing throttling speed, most especially at night and some people has been complaining as well. Not sure why this is happening alll of a sudden.

The company at the moment is going through some struggles with Teleology company and maybe we’ll see some goodies once they settle, if they ever settle, lol. At the moment 9mobile offers no new data plan nor new bonus offer, the only reasonable and cheap data plan from the company is the 1GB for 3days plan which cost N300. The plan is SIM selective which means not all users can use it. Dial *929*10# to subscribe for this plan and if you’re ineligible, you’ll get the message.

But if there’s one thing the company is doing right at the moment, that should be tweeting motivational quotes on their handle, so you can follow 9mobile on Twitter for daily motivational quotes.😂

Ntel Network

Like i already said earlier, there’s really no good data plan from Ntel at the moment aside the unlimited weekly and monthly family plan which will only be reasonable if you have any important task or business to take care of. For me, I’ve stopped using Ntel because it’s network is not yet widely spread and not available in my current location.

You can check Ntel revised data plan to see if you’ll find any cheap data plan that may interest you and if you’re currently using any of their plan, kindly share your experience with us in the comment section below, we’d love to hear.
