Ask some people and they will tell you the name Airtel smartPREMIER sounds like a cold drink – and it is… along with much more! All for 11 kobo per second.
Telecommunication network providers in Nigeria (Airtel, Glo, MTN and 9mobile) often introduce tariff plans that their various subscribers can benefit from.
What are tariff plans? Tariff plans are charges that are introduced by telecom network providers to be ahead of their competitors and keep the networks regulations intact.
There are two types of tariffs, also called rate or price plans depending on terminology used in different billing system, the different tariff plans attract different charges, offers and terms and conditions.
Many subscribers in Nigeria usually get the natural sad feeling when their airtime or credit suddenly runs out due to high call rate.
This teeth-grinding issue has made a lot of telecom user’s subscriber to another network that can offer cheaper call rates like 15 kobo, 11 kobo or even 5 kobo per second as they feel their network providers are cheating them or just unnecessarily expensive.
Well I am glad to inform you that all networks in Nigeria, not just Airtel, offers calls at cheap rates well below 11 kobo per second like the 9mobile plan which offers call rates as low as 1 kobo per second – i kid you not!
Note: These tariff plans all come with individual terms along with bonuses and other kinds of incentives so be sure to read beyond headlines and titles.
