Cheapest Phone Call Rate In Nigeria: Case Study of MTN, Glo, Airtel And Etisalat

I like the way the telecommunication industries in Nigeria are competing in terms of call rates, data bundles etc. these days. Call prices have been slashed down to the barest minimum. We keep believing that it will continue to reduce to the extent that everyone can make call.

Due to the decrease in the call rates, I have decided to make a comparative analysis of the Call Rate in Nigeria so as to identify the best or the cheapest call plan one can easily adopt and minimize cost. We will be checking the Mtn, Glo, Etisalat and Airtel latest call plan and rates, and also compare, analyze and identify the one that best suit us.

  4. Saidu Abubakar says:

    I steal they with my every where u go is vex MTN Naija

  5. Skanty says:

    What about mtn cheapest call rate for mtn to mtn calls not to other networks

  6. Etisalat easyflex is the cheapest… many minutes do u get with mtn 1000..assuming u use it in 3 days, subtract 15 naira for access charge and u are left with 985..20k per sec translates to 12 naira a minute so divide 985 by 12 to get the minute value over 3 days= 82 minutes…however on etisalat 1000 on easyflex gives u 3750 to call allvntwork at 40k per sec with no daily access charge …40k multiplied by60 gives 24 naita per minute…divide 3750 by 24 naira = 156 minuets to call all network..that's double mtn offer

    Hayyy Nigerians the earlier we realize ourselves d better4 us d@ MTN network is robbery network. If they give u free bonus 4example double ur recharge, they will take their bonus including ur own airtime even if its remaining 1,000 in ur main balance( I.e weekend bonus @6PM . Expires @ 11:59PM on Sundays) MTN can never give out free SMS or free second, infact nothing free with MTN. MTN don’t even know celebration time like new year or Christmas, MTN don’t believe der are less privileged people but GLO does. Who wants to be a millionaire? Is still d rich d@ win hmmmmm its well but my believe is d@ one day, d moon/sun n stars shall bow for Joseph. GLO just keep being real.
