Are you looking for cheap offers from the four giant networks in Nigeria: Airtel, Glo, MTN and 9mobile? Are you stranded and need to get something light to access the internet with the speed of light? Wow! You have it right in this article.

Opting for the normal data plans every day, weeks and months can extremely consume a lot of money. In fact, it’s not pocket-friendly. However, you need to have alternatives to always backup your normal data plan, which are obviously the cheap or free offers.

Some offers can work efficiently and consistently on Android, PC (using modems), iPhone, tablets and even PSP consoles, while some are restricted for a specific device.
