    Ntel WAWU Sim

    The Ntel WAWU Sim is another cheapest Data bundle plan but sorry, it is only for specific states. The Ntel WAWU Sim requires you to register a new sim card and you would be provided with 2 sim cards.

    One with 1GB usage only for 48hours and the other, you will receive 10GB valid for 30 days.

    MTN Double Data

    On MTN, you might have come across the Double Data Offer, which multiplies your data by 100%. For instance, if you subscribe to a 5GB monthly plan, you will receive free 5GB accumulating it to a 10GB monthly plan and it doesn’t zap unusually.

    It is supposed to be available to all MTN SIM cards but the Mobile telecom is better off making it ineligible for the most sim but if your SIM is not eligible don’t worry, there is a solution. Follow the below procedure;

    Send PROMO via SMS to 131, A message like this “thank you for your request for device bundle at naira 1/day” it will arrive, don’t worry, Reply with 1 and then choose any MTN data plan below and subscribe.

    Airtel Double Data

    I am still rocking this on my two Airtel Sims including my siblings too but it is not eligible on all Airtel Sim cards. Few of my friends aren’t eligible and unlike MTN, there is no tweak to make them eligible.

    You can get a new sim card to check it out but hoping on whether it will work is 50/50. The Airtel Double Data bonus gives you back 100% of your subscribe data as a bonus e.g subscribe to 5GB on Airtel, you will receive an extra 5GB making it 10GB of data for a month.

    You can get a new Airtel sim card to check for yourself. To test if your sim is eligible then you can dial *144#. You will receive a message like;
    “Enjoy Airtel 100% double Data
    3GB for N1000
    10GB for N2500″
    But most times, it doesn’t show that, so you might be forced to test it out for yourself by subscribing to a lower data plan to check if the SIM is eligible for the double data.
