My opinion / experience
Yes, I will like to start this tutorial with my opinion that also double as my experience as an online business person. When I started using a personal data connection (after shifting from using the cybercafé) many years ago, I discovered that when I use my MTN 3GB bundle (then I was only able to afford 2500 naira night bundle and a Pentium 3 IBM laptop) it last throughout the 30days with large data to spare. Later, I switched to Pentium M IBM still using the night plan mixed with occasional MTN 1000 to 1300 naira data plan that offers 260 to 375 MB plan.
While on the data plan, I was able to use my night plan data for a whole month; and the 1000 to 1300 plan for complete 2 weeks browsing mostly throughout the day. This was the case until I changed to HP Dual Core. The story changed drastically, I started using 3 GB data for les than 2 weeks, and the 260 and 375 MB for less than 3 days, what happened?
I did a little test, got a Pentium 3 laptop and discovered that the data still last longer. So, I concluded that the higher the speed of a PC, the higher the Data that will be consumed during internet browsing.
I decided to get a Pentium 4 laptop for my business and retained higher grade PC for presentation purpose only. Why do you think I did that? If you work online, the amount of data you use will affect your bottom-line and success rate. Therefore, to ensure I don’t spend more than necessary, I use Pentium 4 laptop for strictly business. This way, I keep down my data expenditure while I increase my bottom-line. You can do the same too. However, if this isn’t a good idea for you, try this second option to get your data bundle last longer.
