The cheapest data plans on Airtel, 9mobile, MTN and Glo for February 2021

by Johnson Daniel

Here in this article, we’re going to see a recommendation of the cheapest data plans you can get on all major networks in the country. We’ve been giving out this list monthly for some months now and we wish to continue that trend. Without any further ado, let’s get started with the cheapest data plans on Airtel, 9mobile, MTN and Glo for the month of February.

1. 9mobile

Everything still remains the same for all 9mobile users with the 1GB data plan that costs N200 still up for grabs, however as we all know, it only works for some people. If you’ve not tried it on your 9mobile SIM card before, you can dial the code ∗929∗10# to activate it. If you get an unsuccessful message from 9mobile, you can find out how to become eligible for this plan here.

Also, 9mobile is offering new customers Free N500 airtime + 1GB and up to 100% double data offer valid for 12months. What you need to do from your end is to buy a new 9mobile SIM card.

2. Airtel

Airtel is as silent as 9mobile is however, there are still cheap data plans you can get on the network and just like its counterpart, it’s based on eligibility and you can get:

  • 200MB – N100 – 3 days
  • 1GB – N200 – 7 days
  • 2GB – N500 – 14 days
  • 4GB – N1000 – 30 days


How to activate? It is much safer to find out if you are eligible for the plan before purchasing airtime, to do so, first of all, dial 141241#, select any data plan of your choice then purchase. If you receive a notification message that indicates that you couldn’t buy the data plan due to insufficient balance, just know that you are eligible for the data plan. Then you can go ahead and buy the required amount of airtime needed to purchase the plan of your choice. On the other hand, if you receive a message that reads;

Dear customer, you are not eligible to buy this data bundle. Please dial *141# to activate data bundle.

3. Gloglo stay at home data

It’s the same old story for the self-acclaimed ‘Grandmasters of Data.’ We still have access the Stay Home Data that offers up to 20 per cent more data to subscribers irrespective of the data plan they purchase. Dial *777# to subscribe to any Glo Stay Home data plans.

With the newly revamped data plans on MTN and the introduction of the TikTok bundles, this network seems to be the go-to network for cheap data plans. Not forgetting that you can activate:

  • 1GB for N200; see how to activate this plan here.
  • 1.5GB for N300; see how to activate this plan here.

With the newly revamped data plans on MTN, you can get 2.5GB for N500 and also will get 4GB data to stream YouTube when you buy a monthly plan. To activate any of these plans, dial ∗131∗1#.
