Etisalat seems to have the best time-base data plan, Etisalat pay as you go (PAYG) is a time base data plan just like the popular MTN data plan which gives 150MB data for 250 Naira in 2 hours.Etisalat’s time base data plan is totally unlimited and it goes for 15 naira for every 5 minutes, so for 1 hour you will spend just 180 Naira on an unlimited data cap.
The good thing about this plan is that Etisalat has one of the best internet speed, so you can imagine how many data you will have pulled in an hour, I have read on a site where people claim to have downloaded up to 10GB file in 2 hours that just going to cost 360 Naira.
So if you have a huge file to download no need to start panicking on how much you will spend, Etisalat Unlimited plan will always be there for you.
