Everyone loves using the media and it's even one of the most important things that makes people subscribe to a data plan. This has made all network providers in Nigeria, including Airtel, 9mobile and MTN to provide users with social plans.

When you purchase a social plan, you are strictly restricted to your social data plan. This means that you cannot use a social plan bundle on any other apps or to surf a website. However, you can go for normal plans, if you so desire to leave the restricted zone.

Now, in this article, I will list all the social plans that each of the four network providers in Nigeria has provided for their customers. Additionally, you can bookmark this page on your browser for easy access.
