YouTube is an American video-sharing website owned by Google and it is very popular in the world, this goes to show that many individuals in and outside Nigeria use YouTube very much. In as much as Facebook seems to be the most used social media platform in the past year, we can’t overlook the fact that YouTube is very vital to almost all individuals.
I can’t begin to list the good uses of YouTube, one thing that I can tell you is that it is free to use and millions of people watch videos on YouTube every day. This is where you need to know about the best YouTube data plans for all networks in Nigeria since the data plans in the country seem to be expensive sometimes or the data consumption doesn’t seem to favor you in one way or the other.
We know that there are cheap data plans that you can go for whether you use 9mobile, Airtel, MTN or Glo but most of these cheap data plans are actually not available to all subscribers of the network. For example, 9mobile 1GB for N200 is not available to all 9mobile users, MTN 1GB for N200 is not available to all MTN users, Airtel 3GB for N1000 is not available to all Airtel users, as for Glo, all of their subscribers are eligible for all their products at the moment.
These data plans that I’ve mentioned above now are actually great data plans that will save you a lot of money when you subscribe to them, as I mentioned above, not everybody is eligible to purchase any of those data plans, and sometimes this limits a user from checking out some YouTube videos once in a while, this is why I want to show you the best YouTube data plans that you can subscribe to on your 9mobile, Airtel, MTN or Glo SIM card.
