Nigerian Internet subscribers are constantly looking for affordable and reliable unlimited data plans. Airtel has introduced a new set of unlimited data bundles as part of its Airtel Router Bundles / Home Broadband service. The most affordable one is called Airtel Unlimited Ultra Weekly.
How does it work? You subscribe with the sum of 5,000 naira and get unlimited data for a validity period of seven (7) days. Unsurprisingly, there is a Fair Usage Policy and threshold, but Airtel applies a different twist to make it more attractive than similar unlimited data plans from competitors.
Everything you need to know about Airtel Unlimited Ultra Weekly data plan
- It is a part of Airtel’s Home Broadband service, and so the plan is not available via the *141# menu for standard data plans.
- You need to buy a separate Airtel line for use as your WiFi Number for this.
- Only subscribers who have an Airtel router can subscribe to this plan.
- It costs ₦5,000 (5000 naira)
- You get unlimited data on the Airtel Nigeria network for 7 days of validity
- There is a FUP threshold of 30GB
- You get 1GB data daily after FUP i.e. if you use up your 30GB before the 7 days are up, you are able to use an extra 1GB per day till your validity period ends. That way, you are not cut off completely from the Internet till your 7 days are up.
