Here are some new Etisalat data plans and their prices for 2017. As we know Etisalat is one of the fastest network we have in Nigeria after MTN.
Etisalat has a good 3G network in almost all locations you might find yourself. Even their 4G service is superb, as you don’t need to buy a new Etisalat sim before you can enjoy Etisalat 4G service. All you need is a compatible smartphone that is 4G enabled and support Etisalat 4G LTE band.
Below is the latest list of Etisalat data plans and prices for the year 2017. Below data plans are usable on any internet enabled device like Android phone, iOS, iPad, Windows phone, PC, Java and Symbian, etc.
NEW ETISALAT DATA PLANS AND PRICES FOR THE YEAR 2017
Daily Data Plans
Looking to access the internet on Etisalat for only 24 hours?
These bundles will let you do just that without implanting a hole in your pocket.
10MB for ₦50
Ok, compared to the 30MB Globacom offers you for this same price, this is appalling 🙁 but it’s a nice improvement from what used to be possible.
With a validity of just one day, you get 10MB to surf the internet on Etisalat for just ₦50.

50MB for ₦100
If ₦100 is all you have to surf the net with, you’re entitled to 50MB on Etisalat. That 50MB is valid for 24hours.

Weekly Data Plans
There are some people who loves to go for weekly plans, if you are among those people, then below data plans are for you.
200MB for ₦200
How they came to conclude on offering this particular bundle still baffles me as “normal” weekly bundles are typically around the ₦500 mark (that’s what we are used to). But hell! It’s a good deal anyways.

Airtel was the one who started this “dedicated weekend plan madness” offering 1GB for ₦100, then GLO followed suit and introduced a night + weekend hybrid at a really reasonable price. Now, here’s what Etisalat has to offer.
1GB for ₦500
Relative to other weekend plans, this one may still be on the higher end of the price spectrum for most folks – Hell, Glo offers 3GB for this same amount!
But most users would agree with me that Etisalat’s internet connection is more reliable than other mobile network providers’ in most locations in Nigeria.
For ₦500, you have access to the internet (capped at 1GB) for one weekend – between Friday 11:59PM and Sunday 11:59PM.

This is the plan 70% of Nigerians loves. Below are the available monthly plan on Etisalat network.
500MB for ₦500
Go and look anywhere else, Etisalat is the only network provider in Nigeria that has a monthly data offering for this price.
With such entry level price for a monthly subscription, this plan is targeted towards very light internet users (Nairaland and the punch crew) who have very basic internet needs.
Sometimes, I think of this plan as Etisalat’s answer to Airtel’s Opera Mini Bundle (which gives 250MB for ₦300 valid for a month and usable only on Opera Mini) or Facebook’s Free Basics (free access to the internet, courtesy Airtel) with media.
This plan is valid for 30 days.

1GB for ₦1,000
Nothing new, not mind blowing, just normal. With “a thousand naira” you could be 1GB richer for 30days.
Compared to the competition, this is poor (I know), but that’s why there’s the competition. You have many better options.

1.5GB for ₦1,200
Etisalat does not deem it fit for folks who have just a thousand naira to enjoy what is being enjoyed from most of the other network providers.
Typically, for ₦200 less, 1.5GB is what you get from MTN and Airtel.
Lo and behold, on Etisalat, you pay more, and get far less.
To get 1.5GB on Etisalat for ₦1.2k;

2.5GB for ₦2,000
Years back, if someone had told me that “Etisalat of all people” would possess an internet bundle such as this in their catalog, I would have rebuked the person.
A few weeks ago, I was happy Etisalat was suddenly getting cheaper and then bam!
The prices shoot up again.
The 2.5GB plan is valid for a month and costs just ₦2k.

3.5GB for ₦2,500
Can’t say anything… oops!!!

5GB for ₦3,500
To be honest, I’m tempted to talk about Glo data plans here (again).
This is because, for this same amount you could get more than double the amount of data. But I will not talk about Glo in this article. This article is for Etisalat and Etisalat alone.
Ok, Etisalat tried sha, at least compared to the amount of the data that used to be tagged to this same amount, 5GB is an improvement.
Valid for 30 days, 5GB could be yours so long as you can drop “just” ₦3,500 on the table for Etisalat.

11.5GB for ₦8,000
I will not talk too much about this plan – I’m already talking sef.
The plan is valid for 30 days (like the others).

It should be noted however that Etisalat still has more internet bundles on their catalog; these were just the only ones I saw as reasonable. To view all Etisalat internet bundles, Visit their official web page.
Also, data rollover applies to all the bundles outlined in this article.
