Smile Network Nigeria Data Plans and Prices

Having a fast and reliable internet service is a must if one hopes to succeed in our information-driven, fast-paced world. In Nigeria, there are quite a number of internet service providers, but what sets Smile Network apart is that it only has a 4G LTE network along with its broadband mobile internet service. Smile Network Nigeria data plans are extensive, offering different options according to the requirement of users.

Origin of Smile Network Nigeria

Smile Telecoms Holdings Limited (Smile Group) was founded in 2007, with its head office in England. It owns and operates 4G LTE mobile broadband networks in the 800MHz band. It has a presence in four African countries – Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Smile launched the first 4G LTE network in West Africa in Nigeria in 2014, with head office at 39C Ahmed Onibudo Street, Off Adeola Hopewell, Victoria Island, Lagos. Its SuperFast 4G LTE internet and voice services are available in Lagos, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Abuja, Benin City, Kaduna, Onitsha, and Asaba. There are plans to extend to other states as time goes on.

Before purchasing any Smile Nigeria data plan, customers can either choose the sim-only starter pack option, where a 4G enabled smartphone is required, or alternatively, the router pack or the Mi-Fi pack options. The various Smile Nigeria data plans available can be categorized by the duration they are expected to last;

  • Daily
  • Weekly
  • Monthly

Under the weekly plan, there is also the MidNite plan, which allows you to use data from midnight until 6 am in the morning within a period of seven days. So, if you are a night owl or you work in a different time zone, this plan would come in handy.

You can just buy this and not worry about data for a long time. For customers who don’t use data a lot, with the 15GB plan at ₦9,000, you can forget about buying data again throughout the year.

Smile Network Nigeria Unlimited Data Plans

Although data lasts for 30 days with this plan, it is unlimited in the sense that you would be getting enough (unlimited) and uninterrupted data with the period. So, for customers that use heavy data on a monthly basis, this plan is a great option. The Fair Usage Policy (FUP) applies to some options within this plan. This is basically capping of bandwidth after a customer’s data usage exceeds a certain limit, this is to ensure that network resources are available to everybody without significant drops in speed. Also, there are options for ‘Add-ons’, where you can add more plans to already existing ones, say for example a MidNite plan to an existing daily plan. In such cases, you can control your daily and nightly data usage as it suits your purpose.
