Nigerians are among world heavy Internet users and any network provider that brings affordable internet data plans here is definitely going to be patronized by Nigerians. Having said that, Ntel data plans are not as affordable as you might think but considering they will be giving you a very fast 4G network to use the data including its unlimited cap, i believe its fairly okay to go with it whenever you have a lot of heavy movies and softwares to download.
I will show you the three data plans from Ntel at the moment, their prices and compatible phones according to Ntel. Although up till now, there has not been a physical location where customers could get their 0804 SIM cards but i believe they will make it know to the public before the end of this week because many people have already started sending message on this blogs Facebook page to request for an Ntel SIM Card.
Ntel Data Plans And Prices
==> Starter Plan: N1,000 / 3 days validity / Unlimited data / 30 minutes voice calls / SMS
==> Standard Plan: N2,400 / 7 days validity / Unlimited Data / 70 minutes calls / SMS
==> Monthly Plan: N9,000 / 30 days validity / Unlimited data / 300 minutes calls / SMS
All of the above data plans are unlimited but the speed throttling comes in after some amount of data has been used (not like Etisalat Socialme speed throttling). Even at a throttled speed, its 4 times faster than mtn normal data subscription on a normal day.
Ntel promises as much as 230 Mbps data speed, but their Fair Usage Policy includes the following clauses:
Ntel Fair Usage Policy
==> Customers are only entitled to use our services for personal, non-commercial use.
==> We reserve the right to impose network protection controls, limit the speed of, suspend or block your access to services, or disconnect you if your use is excessive and/or not in keeping with that reasonably expected of a private individual.
Meanwhile, Ntel pointed out some smartphones brands and names that are currently compatible with their 4G LTE Network in Nigeria. These phones are the supported phones at the moment but there will definitely be addition of new phones in weeks to come.
Ntel Supported Phones
==> TECNO Camon C5
==> Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
==> TECNO Boom J8
==> Infinix Zero 3
==> Infinix Note 2

Having seen this, do you believe this new telecom company will outclass mtn and others in the game?
