Best data plans and shortcodes in Nigeria 2021

In Nigeria, practically every sector and over 100m people depend heavily on internet data enabling devices for their daily activities and to increase services and maximize results.

The high demand for these data-driven devices (Telephone, PC, Modern, etc.) has heightened actions among major Internet Service Providers in Nigeria to ensure their names are known as the best, affordable and fastest in terms of internet connectivity.

To achieve this, data service providers,(MTN, GLOBACOM, AIRTEL 9MOBILE) have constantly come up with innovative data plans to have a competitive edge over and to accommodate the demand. The competition has brought about varieties of consumer products that are more affordable, dependable and that can give customers the opportunity to make their own choice of the Internet service provider.

Accordingly, the option of selecting a data service provider for any purposes by either a business owner, entrepreneur or an individual will be based on the following factors:

NETWORK COVERAGE

The importance of first having the network coverage knowledge of any area of your choice of business location or place of abode before engagement of any internet service provider can not be overemphasised based on its long-run benefits of eliminating wasteful resources and frustration. Hence, the knowledge of network coverage capacity should probably be first before engagement.

NETWORK QUALITY

One of the most frustrating things about Internet services when browsing is the ideal of slowing to proceed or not being able to open any website. This has been the major concern of individual or business owners on Internet services. So, the need to know the level of network quality of any internet service provider will be awesome.

NETWORK SPEED

The length of time which work is done on Internet operating on any network provider is the best factor to consider when choosing a network operator. So, the speed of any given network service provider is a big advantage to the provider and consumer.

NETWORK COST

The affordability of anything in Nigeria when it’s comes to costing is one of the things people look at before engagement. Since Internet provision has become a competitive industry, any service provider with the most cost-effective data plan will be considered first.

Good customers service

When it comes to the issue of data handling and operation especially in a Country like Nigerian who is trying to migrate from the analogue to the digital world, the factor of customers service relationship must be highly considered. Before using any of the ISPs, you need to consider their representatives’ friendliness. Is the customer service agent easy to access? Will they help in solving any problems encountered in using their services?

After due consideration on all the factors listed above for the choice of Internet service providers, the next will be if the products offered by Internet service providers agree with our budget and demand.
