Ntel since inception, has proven to be worth the money. Unlike Smile which doesn’t seem to be active in my location, nTel works pretty well.
During the first few months of getting on the network, the service was amazing. I could watch Netflix videos without being interrupted by the network service. I was more than impressed that I even had to put up a review of the service without being asked to.
A few months after, the network service went down slope. Watching videos even on Facebook became a pain in the butt. The only time I could conveniently watch videos on Facebook was during the night time. Same applied to downloading files. Speaking with one of their reps, he mentioned there ‘was’ a 3GB daily threshold. Once the 3GB threshold is reached in a day, the download speed will be automatically reduced. That wasn’t convincing though. I mean, considering the fact that i do not often consume up to 3GB daily.
The network service seem to be better now though. Although not up to pal as it was when i first got on the service, it’s still better than it was a few months back.
Enough of the preamble. NTel has done what I didn’t expect to happen so soon. The ISP has increased its data rates.
NTel’s New Unlimited Data Rates
Although the Internet Service provider recently introduced new data plans, we are still very much accustomed to just three. BTW, the ISP celebrated it’s one year anniversary a few days back.
The 2 days plan, weekly and monthly. The 2 days plan has been increased from NGN1000 to NGN1500. The weekly has been increased from NGN3000 to N3,750 while the monthly has been increased from NGN10,000 to NGN12,500.
Will I still continue with the monthly plan? Despite the additionally NGN2,500, I will still rather continue with the nTel unlimited monthly plan. Not like I have any option.
Smile’s recently launched monthly unlimited plan would have been a substitute but since inception, there’s been no service here at my location. Same for Spectranet. Thanks but no thanks, nTel.
Update (February, 2018)
While surfing through the blog, i realized i haven’t published an update to this article despite changes that has been made by nTel. I figured it’s my duty to update you guys and as thus, i have decided to update this content reflecting the new change.
So, what’s new? You may ask. Well, while the price rates for the daily and weekly plans still remains the same, a change has been made to the monthly plan. Initially, nTel increased it’s monthly unlimited data plans from NGN10,000 to NGN12,500. I expressed a bit of my displeasure (in the above content). Now guess what, they’ve again, increased the price to N17500. That’s a whooping N5000 difference from NGN12,500.
Is The New Ntel Monthly Unlimited Data Plan Price Acceptable?
Oh well, currently, Spectranet also offer an unlimited data plan. Same goes for smile. For spectranet, the monthly unlimited data plan goes for NGN18,000. That’s a NGN500 difference compared to NTel. But, spectranet has got other juicy plans.
There is the 40GB plan which goes for NGN12,500. Expensive, right? But, that plan comes with free night unlimited browsing. From 12:00am to 7:00am to be precise. Meaning, from 12:00am to 7:00am, you can surf the internet for absolutely no cost.
Personally, i have had to switch from nTel to Spectranet. Yes, the service is very active in my new location and even better compared to what i was experiencing on nTel.
Ntel however, now have unlimited night plans. The monthly unlimited night plan on nTel, goes for N5000. I’d rather stick with spectranet for now though.
If any update is made, you can be sure that i will update this content to reflect the new changes. Until then, what do you think of the new Ntel Unlimited monthly data plan price?
