  1. N500 for 750MB:

This data bundle plan is available on all Airtel’s Tariff plan and it is called the “Easy Data Bundle”. For the Easy Data Plan you do not need to migrate to any special tariff.

The major difference between it and that of the smartTRYBE plan, is that it comes with a 14 days validity period, unlike the smartTRYBE plan that has just 7 days validity period. This means if you can’t finish the 750MB data allotted to you within 7 days, you can still use it within the next 7 days.

Another obvious difference is the difference in Data volumes, while SmartTRYBE comes with a 1gb data volume, the Easy Data plan has 750MB data volume.

To subscribe for the Easy Data Plan, simply dial *418#.


  1. N500 Unlimited Data Plan:

This data bundle is also available on all Airtel’s Tariff plans, but it is only available on the 2G network. This simply means you cannot use this plan on a 3G network or 4G LTE network on Airtel, strictly 2G (Edge [E]).

It is one of the most attractive data subscriptions on Airtel for users who do not mind the internet speed.

It has a validity period of 25 days, you enjoy unlimited data for the whole period, although with a limited but reasonable internet speed.

To subscribe to this plan, simply dial *482*2#
