Comparison of MTN, Airtel and Glo 10 GB Data Plans

MTN, Airtel and Glo 10 GB data plans

For many Nigerian mobile phone users, the cost of purchasing data for internet services is still on the high side. This explains why a lot of people opt for the cheap N1000 data plans offered by all the networks. Unfortunately, if you’re an active social media user, chances are that you will need to buy another N1000 data plan before the end of the month. To solve this problem, we decided to make a list of one of the most sought-after data plan packages. This article features a comparison table of the MTN, Airtel and Glo 10 GB data plans. We did not include the data plan sold by 9mobile because of a lot of skepticisms. People are alienating themselves from the network until they are eventually sold.

Moreover, the 10 GB data plan will last a heavy user for at least 30 days if they use up to 300 MB daily. Only people who download a lot, stream YouTube videos frequently, and have heavy data needs will reach this threshold.

Below is the comparison table of the MTN, Airtel and Glo 10 GB data plans across the selected networks. The prices, activation codes, and duration are shared below.

From the table, one can easily deduce that the Glo N2500 data package is very pocket-friendly. However, that’s not the case. Undeniably, Glo offered over 12.5GB worth of data for half the price others offered theirs.

In our opinion, the MTN N5000 data plan is a better option. Like the saying goes, MTN is everywhere you go. Their services are everywhere and one will only complain of the price of their data plan but not the quality of their service. On the other hand, if Glo eventually ends up buying 9mobile, then they may give MTN a run for their money.

In all, what’s the best data plan for people who use the internet moderately in Nigeria? It’s the MTN N5000 data plan that offers 10 GB worth of data. It will last for 30 days. Additionally, you get superb service for browsing. This is in contrast to Airtel and Glo which can be slow at times depending on your location.
