Airtel subscribers can now enjoy an awesome 4GB worth of Internet data for just a cheap sum of N1000.
This new subscription tweak is preferable done on a new Airtel sims as you are by default on the Welcome To Airtel plan .
However, if you are making use of an old Airtel sim, you can still enjoy an awesome 3GB for the same sum of N1000.
To make this tweak work, you have to be informed on how to change your smartphones imei number .
However, unlike when you are making use of Glo bis plan with the use of imei change, with this airtel data tweak you have to specifically change to the imei from a Blackberry 10 device (Z10, Q10, Q5 etc).
Enough talks, let's go into the technicalities.

News has been making the rounds that telecommunications company Airtel would be exiting Africa and the telecom company has released an official press release debunking the rumours.

Checkout a summary of the long press release below:

Image result for airtel office images
Airtel isn’t leaving Africa anytime soon. 
As a matter of fact, Airtel increased its ownership of Airtel Nigeria in November after purchasing Econet Wireless Limited’s 4.2% shareholding.
The news of Airtel exiting the Africa market is not new, similar rumors made the rounds back in 2015 which was similarly debunked by the telco.

Below is the full transcript of Airtel's press release debunking the latest rumoured planned exit:

NAIROBI 30th January 2017: Airtel Africa, a leading telecommunications company with operations in 15 countries across Africa, has refuted speculative media reports erroneously stating its possible exit from Africa. The organization has reaffirmed that it remains committed to Africa and will continue to invest in its operations to grow sustainably in Africa. 

Airtel Africa’s recent 3rd quarter results were strong. The underlying Africa revenues for the quarter accelerated by 6.0 per cent Y-o-Y, the highest over the last 9 quarters. 
The organization’s efforts to improve the quality of customer acquisitions have resulted in a reduction in customer churn to 4.9 per cent from 6.0 per cent. 
Data consumption and revenues have grown by 91.0 percent & 24.0 per cent Y-o-Y respectively, led by stronger data networks. 
The strong focus on cost management has led to a significant underlying EBITDA margin expansion of 4.5 per cent Y-o-Y, which now stands at 24.5 percent. Africa is now generating positive free cash and is PBT positive in constant currency.

Raghunath Mandava, Managing Director, and Chief Executive Officer, Airtel Africa, said’ “All the steps taken recently with regard to human resources and infrastructure have been geared towards readying the organization to grow efficiently and sustainably in the medium to long term. 
The company remains committed to competing in various markets and providing more choice to customers through further investments to ensure consistent delivery of quality and value for money services to our customers. 
We are also accelerating our investments in new data networks and to modernize our existing networks. 
We are committed to launching 4 G in multiple countries.”
He added “Mergers and acquisitions continue to be the norm for any multinational organization and they affect all global organizations in equal measures as and when they happen. As a strategy, we look for opportunities to acquire or merge in opcos that are operating in a fragmented market structure with too many players in a small market.

Last year, Airtel and Orange reached a mutually beneficial agreement on the assets in Sierra Leone and Burkina Faso. Similarly, Airtel also acquired assets in Uganda, CongoB and Kenya in recent times. The agreements brought together the strengths of Airtel, Warid and Essar. 
This has offered benefits to customers in the form of a superior and wider network, affordable voice/data services and better customer care. Away from Africa, recently, we merged with Robi in Bangladesh to create a solid and profitable No.2 player in the market.” 
The recent results demonstrate the effectiveness of Airtel’s business strategy in Africa. The organization sees an opportunity ahead to emerge with a broader reach and sharper execution.

Airtel are making the news of recent! Having officially announce the Airtel Ng 4G LTE services, Airtel has announced an awesome promo plan that is aimed at bringing back runaway customers.

airtel-win-back-20x-promo


This new promo is quite peculiar as it is only eligible for Airtel SIMs that has been abandoned for over a month (30 days). The general idea of the promo is not as weird as it sounds, Airtel are simply devising a smart way to bring back old customers.

The new Airtel WinBack 20X promo gives users a massive 20 times on all recharges made on SIMs that have been abandoned for over 30 days i.e SIMs that has not been active for calls, SMS or internet data.

After all the other telcos in the country (NGR) successfully launched their respective 4G LTE services, Airtel users are still left twiddling their thumbs and crossing their toes in anticipation.

Good news however, the wait is finally over!

airtel-4g-lte

Airtel Ng has at long last announced the rollout of the Airtel 4G LTE services in the country! 

I personally find it disappointing that Airtel despite being the first telecom company to  successfully carry out 4G trial in Lagos back in 2012, they are the very last to officially roll out the service to their loyal subscribers.

I recently posted on how to get 1GB of data monthly on the Airtel network for N300. However, that data bundle plan does not allow for downloading and basically is just for surfing the internet and instant messaging.

So, I did a little bit of data bundle research and came across the old but still actve Airtel weekend data plan.
Image result for airtel weekend data plan

The Airtel weekend plan gives a cool 1GB of data for just N100 valid for the weekend and unlike the norm with Airtel and their data plans, it does not zap data..

The only con of this data bundle plan is the fact that it deals with eligibility (i.e not all Airtel sims are eligible to enjoy this offer), so you have to check your eligibility status to ascertain you can enjoy this cool offer.

ELIGIBILITY CHECK

To check your eligibility status, follow the steps below:

  • Be sure to have 0.00 on your Airtel SIM
  • Dial ussd code  *474*1#
  •  If you receive a "You have insufficient balance to subscribe for this plan" response sms than you are eligible for the weekend offer
As soon as eligibility status is confirmed, you can proceed to subscribing to the Airtel weekend internet plan by:

  • Recharge your Airtel SIM with N100
  • Redial ussd code  *474*1#
  • N100 will be deducted and you will be credited with a cool 1GB for the weekend (Saturday and Sunday)
  • To check your data bundle balance, dial ussd code *140#


HOW TO GET 7GB FOR N700

Now comes the part where your intelligence comes to play, Airtel does not allow users subscribe for the weekend data bundle twice over 24 hours.

However, you can rollover the subscription up till the weekend i.e you start subscribing for the weekend plan on Monday, Tuesday.....till Sunday.

That way you get a cool 7GB for just N700 for use over the weekend!!!

Awesome right?

So, start accumulating data for the weekend and keep your download manager stacked for the weekend!

Thats how I roll, join the movement!!!

Quite recently, telecommunications company MTN increased their Xtratime (Borrow airtime) rates by 5% (from 10-15%), Etisalat subsequently followed suit.

Airtel has now sadly joined the league of recession-influenced-interest-increment gang, similarly increasing their interest rates on borrowed airtime by 5% (from 10-15%).


Image result for airtel borrow airtime image

There seem to be a join agreement between these telcos and it would not be surprising if
Globacom decides to follow the trend.

With the rate at which people make use of these telecom "borrow airtime" features, this move would really bring in massive revenue (essentially milking subscribers). Borrowing airtime - or borrowing data (in the case of MTN Xtrabytes) - is never advisable (in my opinion), but in some cases of emergency it becomes a necessary (and appreciable) evil.

However, I find it funny at how swiftly Airtel joined the 5% interest increase team, considering I (We) have been patiently waiting to see their own 4G LTE services launched and it does not look like its happening any time soon.

Anyways, it is what it is!

If you feel the need to borrow airtime from Airtel (despite the increase), simply follow the steps below:


  • First of, to be eligible for Airtel "borrow airtiime" feature, you must be a regular Airtel subscriber (for atleast 3 months) and must recharge at least N300 worth of airtime per month.
  • If you qualify (with the above condition), simply dial *500*amount# (e.g *500*100# to borrow N100) to borrow airtime from Airtel
  • Or dial *500# and follow the prompts

NB: Note that the 15% interest charge will be deducted instantly i.e if you borrow N100 you will be credited with N85, if you borrow N200 you will be credited with N170 and so on...

We remain hopeful for a positive development from Airtel soon, their 4G LTE service roll out specifically.

What do you think of this interest rate increment?

Would you still use Airtel's "borrow airtime" features?

Are you anticipating Airtel 4G LTE services soon?

Kindly let us know your thoughts using the comments box
