The festive period often comes with a lot of spending, part of which is spending on call cards and data. Being a period of felicitations, people will always want to make more calls and send messages using data, thus spending more money on communications.
But there are ways to cut costs even as the urge to call more and do more with data becomes irresistible. One such way is to leverage available promotions across the various networks to get cheaper tariff plans.
Already, all the mobile network operators, MTN, Glo, Airtel, and 9mobile currently have some special plans offering subscribers mouth-watering bonuses in data and airtime. Nairametrics takes a look at some of these offers across the networks. They are:
