Hi guys, I’m sorry for letting this come in late, but it is better late than never, right? It has been a while I reviewed the best and affordable internet data plans for all Smartphones/PC, but in the last 30days, there are lots of change in NG internet data plans, so this review is very necessary.

Glo Blackberry Plans: Glo bis plan has been scaled down to 2GB For N1,000. Their 3GB bis plan is now N1,400 and N1,500 respectively. I tried their 3GB of N1,400, the way they are deducting it’s megabytes not fear at all, it’s zaps data a lot while their 3GB of N1,500 plan doesn’t zap the data any how, it is ok than the one of N1,400. To Subscribe for any of this plan;
Dial *777*21# For 2GB, it cost N1,000

MTN BB10 plans are the best unlimited cheapest data plan that we have been using for long, all of our sure VPN’s are now tracked down by MTN, unlimited surfing with affordable price are not easy for now. MTN Music plus is what we are using as an alternative to BB10 plans for now on PC, Mac, Android and iOS devices, N15 airtime is only what you need to get 150MB.
Though some are complaining that MTN Music+ for N15 is no more working. This is to let you know that MTN Music+ is still working fine, just that it required new scope before you can be able to received the 150mb from MTN.
New Scope to Subscribe for MTN Music+ of 150MB
» Make sure you have only N15 airtime in your MTN Sim (Don’t put much airtime in your sim to avoid N75 deduction unnecessarily)
» Text C to 5900
» You will received an sms from 58001102, make sure you reply with the word YES
That is all.
After you exhaust your 150mb and you wish to renew it new, send cancel7c to 5900 to unsubscribe the plan, then repeat the above process again for another 150mb.
