The competition is getting more interesting as airtel joins 9mobile and Glo to race on the affordable cheapest data plan. The newly introduced Airtel Download Pack plan that gives you Airtel 1GB for N350 was silently added with no official unveiling post, tweet nor advertisement.
Looking at it, the Airtel Download pack plan that gives you 1GB for N350 is on the same category as the previous 9mobile 1GB for N200 and Glo 1.2GB for N200. The amazing part of it all is that the plan doesn’t require any VPN nor trick to browse/download with it as it appears to work as a normal data plan.
The Airtel 1GB for N350 plan is a bit set back to fight out its competitors because it comes with shorter validity compare to others and also costly. However, the Airtel Download pack data plan is eligible to all users both on weekdays and weekends, unlike the 9mobile 1GB for N200 that is eligible to all users during weekends.

As the name implies, the plan is for heavy data users.
As said earlier, the Airtel Download pack data plan is far behind when comparing the affordable plan to its existing competitors. The Airtel 1GB for N350 is valid for 24hours (1day), whereas Glo and 9mobile affordable data plan is valid for 3days. Also, it has an additional N150 added price, whereas the Glo and 9mobile are N200.
I think this plan is suitable for old costumers who aren’t receiving the Airtel double data offer. Furthermore, people who have bad network coverage for Glo and 9mobile in their areas should consider making use of this plan once they wish to download heavy stuff. I believe with these few briefings, Airtel will consider reducing the price and increase its validity.
