Airtel Network Specials Review


Airtel Nigeria from Bharti Airtel(Parent Company) Specail Gifts, Bonuses And or Promos

Since 2000 when Airtel Nigeria was found, it has been the best till date. In order to gain more subscribers to Airtel Nigerai plus gain and win the trust of their current subscribers like me.

Airtel has made subscription worthwhile over the years. I mean unlike other Nigerian mobile networks like MtN, Glo or Etisalat Airtel has made subscriptions easier with loaded data and low expenses in the sense that one could use a thousand (1000) Naira worth of Airtime to subscribe and still have enough data to sustain the subscriber(him/her).

For example using the current Subscription plans from Airtel, 1000 Naira gives 4GB, 1500 Naira gives 6GB and 2000 gives 8/9GB worth of data, et cetera. These added bonuses comes to people or subscribers who either got a new and updated registered Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) card or has a new mobile phone and is using Airtel’s SIM card in the new phone.

Now I have given you a little tip of the ice berg above with all the bla bla bla. 
Let's get to the good stuff below
