Data War: Etisalat Fights MTN As They Reduce Price of Data Plans [See Plans + Pricing]


I’m very happy writing this post. Competition is always good for business I must say.

Following the recent review of data plans by biggest telecommunication company in Nigeria, the South Africa-owned MTN (see here). The UAE owned Etisalat has been forced to review their pricing also as you can see below. Although the N1000 and N2000 plans has been placed on same data cap as MTN’s new plans, the other plans are comparatively more (if not very) costly.

Here’s a rundown of the plans and pricing…

Daily Plans

    • SMS Code: MI1
    • USSD: *229*3*1#
Weekly Plans
  • 50MB (N500)
    • SMS Code: MI2
    • USSD: *229*3*4#
Monthly Plans
  • 1.5GB (N1,000)
    • SMS Code: AND1

  • 20GB (N18,000)
    • SMS Code: SM3
    • USSD: *229*4*3#
Quarterly (90 days) Plans
  • 30GB (N27,500)
    • SMS Code: 4M
    • USSD: *229*5*1#

To subscribe, dial the USSD code of the plan or your choice or send the SMS code as a text message to 229.

In my opinion, I’d rather go for either the 1k or 2k plan and buy it multiple times than go for any of the higher ones. Better still you can check out the MTN data plans as they have better value for money.
