How much is Airtiel Unlimited Data Plan?

Airtel Nigeria now has new unlimited data plans but not as straightforward as it sounds. The Airtel unlimited data plans come at three different bundles and prices.

I know what you’re thinking right now! “If these Airtel data plans are truly unlimited, why then are there 3 categories with different prices and same 1-month validity?”

While all the plans are truly unlimited they all come with a clause in their use, in the course of the article we make you understand.

How much is Airtel Unlimited Data Plan?

  1. Unlimited-10 for N10,000 valid for 30 days.
  2. Unlimited-15 for N15,000 also valid for 30 days.
  3. Unlimited-20 for N20,000 valid for 30 days as well.

So why the difference in their prices?

This is the cheapest Airtel unlimited plan.

The clause is to throttle your download speed down to maximum browsing speed of 256 kb/s when you exceed 40GB of data before the validity period (30 days).
