Airtel Nigeria Launched Affordable Weekend Data Plan 1GB For N100

Airtel after launching their time based data plan, they now introduced another super cheap data plan called airtel weekend data which costs N100 for 1GB.
This is good for heavy downloaders and can also stream live matches with it. This airtel weekend data is the cheapest data i have seen in Nigeria to compare to what mtn, etisalat and glo are giving us in the name of data bundle.

There's no doubt that competition is within our network providers as we Nigerians are heavy internet users and you know how much they are making. And also i think by next year things will get a lot better coupled with nitel that is coming back to Nigeria again and to offer cheap data services. Can't wait the day any of these network providers will offer us 3GB data bundle at N500 though if this country isn't corrupt these our network providers shouldn't be killing us with high price data plan which the poor always find it difficult to afford coupled with other related expenses like electricity bills.

For this airtel weekend data plan, it doesn't require any tunnel software or application to be able to use it, just a direct internet access and you are good to go. So don't bother thinking about Psiphon Handler or Simple Android server.
