You’d be shocked to see an offer like this in 2018, right? Things like this are hard to imagine right now in Nigeria. But the reality is, this one is happening right now, right in our faces, so it would be nice for you to join the moving train ASAP. Airtel is going to double your data whenever you buy. Provided you own a SmartConnect 5.0 sim you are automatically eligible.
The Smart Network Has Revamped SmartConnect 4.0
Airtel SmartConnect 5.0 is the revamped and upgraded version of Smartconnect 4.0 ( the default tariff that comes with your brand new Airtel NG sim card). The former is known to give 8X more value. 8X more on data, Calls, and others. SmartConnect 5.0 does exactly the same plus even more.
Airtel SmartConnect 5.0 offers 8X bonus and 2X value of your purchased data size for the same amount.
According to a statement by Airtel on its Twitter page, it says;
We know you want more and we have just what you want. Imagine getting 1.5GB for just N500 or 3GB for just N1,000, yea its that good. Get double data and eight times your recharge value with Airtel SmartConnect, get an Airtel SIM today. #AirtelSmartConnect #smallmoneyBIGDATA
With Airtel SmartConnect,
- N500 gives you 1.5GB data, instead of 750MB.
- N1,000 gives you 3GB data, instead of 1.5GB.
- N1,500 gives you 7GB data, instead of 3.5GB.
- N2,500 gives you 11GB data, instead of 5.5GB.
To Activate Airtel #SmallMoneyBigData
- Visit any Airtel shop or experienced center to get a new Airtel SIM.
- After registering the sim, you will be automatically migrated to the Airtel SmartCONNECT tariff plan
- Insert the SIM into your phone and dial *141# to purchase data bundles in order to get extra data benefit.
NB: You need a new Airtel Sim to be a beneficiary of this offer. Although some old users have double data active on their sim, it is just by chance and not the same as SmartConnect 5.0.
SmartConnect 4.0 Or SmartConnect 5.0 ?
Sims that have double data by chance would likely not be eligible for ‘8X bonus’. If you have a new sim that has been registered under the Airtel network for about a month or more you would most likely be in the SmartConnect 4.0 tariff (which is not quite what we want). Only a New Sim that is about a week old or less from now will be on SmartConnect 5.0 which guarantees the complete goodie bag.
Existing subscribers on the network can also dial *144# to check if they are eligible to activate any double data.
To check your data bundle
The Airtel “Small Money Big Data” package data bundle can be checked by dialing *140# USSD code, just the normal way you check your normal or regular data plans.
Also, as part of the bonuses, it also gives ‘family and friends bonus’ each time you recharge. To register your F&F, simply dial *311*2*AirtelNumber#, while you can dial *311*3*AirtelNumber# to remove a particular number.
