A definitive step to deepen broadband connectivity in homes and offices across the country has been taken by a leading telecommunications services provider, Airtel Nigeria.
This was through the recent introduction of affordable Home Broadband packages with large volume of data for subscribers.
According to a statement, the Airtel Home Broadband (HBB) package is available in Routers and MiFis and comes in various affordable recharge plans, offering up to 100GB of data bonus.
Under the new Airtel Home Broadband plans, when a customer purchases an Airtel Router for N25,000, he or she is instantly credited with 100GB data and also offered complimentary 10GB data for 6 months on purchase of the Airtel N10,000 data bundle plan.
The Airtel MIFI comes at N15,000 and offers instant 40GB data and an additional 5GB monthly for 6 months on purchase of the N5,000 Data Bundle plan.
The Routers and MIFIs are bundled with a 4G SIM and customers can buy a bundle plan, register their data line and check their data balance by dialling *370# or by visiting the website, www.onetouch.ng.
Commenting on the new offer, Godfrey Efeurhobo, Director, Home Broadband, Airtel Nigeria, said, “Airtel believes the new offer will empower more telecoms consumers to become more productive and more successful in their respective endeavours.”
“With the widest 4G network in the country, Airtel is well positioned to offer a robust and best in class experience for Home Broadband and mobile Internet as we connect people to their dreams,” he added.
It was stated that existing customers with 3G routers can also enjoy the Airtel Home Broadband plan by upgrading their data SIMs to 4G.
Airtel explained that the launch of its exciting Home Broadband offerings rides on its expansive and modernized 4G network, which has been deployed in over 130 cities and towns across Nigeria, making Airtel the first operator to launch the Home Broadband plans in all 36 states including the Federal Capital Territory.
