If you find it inadequate, you can then upgrade to a higher data plan. If all you can spare in a month for internet access is N5,000, the Airtel 3GB internet browsing plan is the best deal for you.
How to access Airtel 3GB Internet?
The Airtel 3GB Internet browsing bundle can be accessed via an internet enabled phone (GPRS/EDGE/WCDMA/HSDPA) or a compatible internet modem. Buy and load Airtel recharge cards worth ₦5,000 into your internet enabled mobile phone, device, or USB modem and dial *141*5000#.
You will receive an SMS in a short-while informing you of the success or failure of your request. If your request is successful, you now start browsing the internet. In 30-days or on using 20GB, your Airtel Smartphone internet plan will expire. The downside of Airtel internet packages is that you are not alerted when your internet package expires.
Once your Airtel internet package expires, your internet access will automatically default to pay as you go at 15kb/s without alerting you. So if you have extra credit on your device, it may be wiped out before you know what is going on.
