Airtel Nigeria has unveiled SmartSpeedoo, a new data plan which dataholics will find agreeable. The plan allows customers to browse at an affordable tariff and enjoy free megabytes. It can be activated using *141#.
Vice President, Data & Digital Services at Airtel, Nitin Anand, explained how the service works.
“When a customer uses up to 10mb at 1kobo/kb, Airtel gives him 10mb free. And when his usage gets to 50mb, the browsing rate drops to 0.5kobo/kb, then he gets 50mb free. When the customer’s usage reaches 100mb, the rate drops further to 0.2kobo/kb and he is given 100mb free,” Anand explained.
Anand further noted that this cycle continues every month, thereby giving Airtel customers the FREE SURF experience.
He also noted that Smart Speedo works on the firm’s superfast 3G internet, which offer internet speed of up to 42mbps, which is very close to the Long Term Evolution (LTE) speed.
“Almost 80 to 85 percent of all Airtel 3G sites in Nigeria are IP enabled so they can give you the speed of 42mbps, this speed is similar to the speed you get on LTE network. So, we can proudly announce that customers can get real data experience on the Airtel 3G network, which is equal to 4G speed,” Anand said.
