How to unlock your 1GB data plan with Airtel RechargePlus

    One day ago, Airtel Nigeria announced a new plan called Airtel RechargePlus, the new plan allows customers to enjoy amazing data offer, after their normal weekly recharge, and Airtel network is among the best in Nigeria.

    MTN, 9mobile, Glo are practically introducing cheaper and affordable data plan in Nigeria, but among the networks, Glo Nigeria is favoring only fewer people in the industry. Can’t speak for other states, but here in Port-Harcourt, it is not encouraging.

    Airtel RechargePlus is definitely the best choice for light-users / subscribers, this set of persons browse the internet on a low data. It won’t enhance or boost the moral of heavy data users, and note that, the 1GB data works in a special method.

    How does the Airtel RechargePlus works?

    The Airtel RechargePlus works perfectly for all Airtel SIM-card. There is no exception for either new or old sim subscribers, Airtel did not specify that the data offer will work for any particular SIM such as MTN 4GB for N1000.

    Another important fact, Airtel won’t provide you the 250MB data bonus on any regular recharge, but there is a particular amount you have to recharge to unlock, understand that, not all Airtel SIM recharge amount are the same, it totally depends on your use of the sim: regular or once in a while.

    Your first week recharge might be N100, but next week recharge won’t be the same. Airtel will ask for another higher or lower amount, it goes on and so forth through that month.
