In Nigeria, the giant network operators (inclusive of
Etisalat, MTN, Airtel and Glo) offer data plans which users can easily
subscribe to and use for internet surfing. Undoubtedly, this constitutes the
benefits you can derive from any of these network operators.

Average Nigerians always hope to get premium things at
affordable prices. This is actually why some people browse the web severally
for data cheats. Truly there are data cheats which you can obtain at little or
no cost. However, the major setback is that many of these data cheats limit
your browsing or even download experience.
After having used a paid plan (such as Airtel 1.5GB for
#1000) for some while and a friend suddenly introduces Airtel 1GB for #300 to
you without telling you its disadvantages. If your greed for Airtel’s cheap
data makes you switch from your current data plan, you will eventually feel
disgusted to find out that the Airtel 1GB for #300 is just a social plan and
will not work on any browser apart from Opera Mini. If this occurs, you may
need to switch back to your old data plan and doing this requires that you
first deactivate your current data plan.
