Before Starcomms hourly internet browsing plans (bulk hours/bundled hours), there was Starcomms always on internet plan, this provided Starcomms subscribers with internet access always (24/7). However, this was too expensive and did not address the need of users that are not too heavy in their use of the Internet, as prices were considered too high for such customers.
Then came two other internet browsing plans. First Starcomms business hour plan was designed for customers who use internet during normal business hours (9am to 9pm). Although it was cheaper than the always on plan, it was not convenient for every user as it does not provide internet access round the clock.
Starcomms night browsing plan allows you to browse at night (9pm to 9am). This is similar to night internet browsing offered by cyber cafes. However, how many people will be willing to miss their sleep just to stay online at night.
Okay, you go to work and have no time to browse the internet except at night? Well, what about Public Holidays? Starcomms Night internet browsing plan is not convenient and you will discover this on holidays. You stay at home but cannot browse until at night. Starcomms hourly plan is the answer to cheap and convenient internet browsing.
Starcomms bulk internet hour package is a cost effective solution that allows a subscriber to buy a number of hours and browse the internet any time (24/7) within the validity period of their subscription. Two options are available from Starcomms. They are Starcomms 100-hour browsing and Starcomms 250 hour browsing packages.
Starcomms 100-hour bulk hour internet browsing package
Starcomms 100 hour browsing plan gives you 100 hours of internet access within a 30 days period. Just like in a cyber cafe if you do not use up your time within your 30 days validity period you lose it. Price of this plan is 5,000 Naira on Starcomms One network and 6,500 Naira on Starcomms iZap network. The difference between Starcomms One and iZap is that iZap is based on EVDO a 3G technology that is faster.
This is even cheaper than Cyber cafe rates as it adds up to 65 Naira or 50 Naira per hour. So if you can use 50 to 100 hours in a month this Starcomms internet plan is very cost effective.
Starcomms 250-hour bulk hour internet-plan
Even a more cost effective internet browsing plan is the Starcomms 250 hour internet plan. Starcomms 250 hour browsing package allows you to access internet for 250 hours over a validity period of 90 days (3 months).
Starcomms 250-hour internet package costs 10,000 Naira on Starcomms One and 15,000 Naira on Starcomms iZap. This adds up to 40 Naira/hr or 60 Naira/hr respectively. Starcomms 250-hour internet browsing package is also cost effective for subscribers who do not use the internet often.
In fact, if you spend 10 hours to 70 hours on the internet monthly, Starcomms 250 hour bulk plan is cost effective and cheaper than cyber cafe prices in Nigeria.
