No doubt, we cannot maximally enjoy these smartphones and other mobile devices if we have no access to the Internet while using them. An average Nigerian using these phones would at least want to use it for gaining access to social networking and instant communication apps like Whatsapp and Facebook.

Our communication network providers have competitively reduced the cost of data bundles to make it affordable — to an appreciable extent, at least – for Nigerians.

Here are the best data plans that you can get from our four major network providers in Nigeria.
