Cheapest tariff for calls and sms in Nigeria

Recently there have been a lot of competition and upgrades amongst these networks in both data plans and call tariff plans. First on tariff was Etisalat with Eti easy life 4.0. Then mtn seeing the plan as a threat quickly followed suite.

With all this changes, i think its time you stop making calls at exorbitant rates that even my billionaire grand pa will object to lols. I Decided to write this after realising MTN zone plan now selects sims to call which is almost as good as blocked. As at the time of writing this post, below are the cheapest Tariff plans from the four most used networks here in Nigeria. So you can compare and pick out the one which suites your daily budget, business or call habit/pattern.

Cheapest Tariff On Etisalat

For Etisalat, the cheapest tariff plan is no other than the newly launched Etisalat Easylife 4.0 package. which comprises of:

==>Calls at 11k/Sec to all network in Nigeria.
==>Calls at 20k/sec to 4
international destinations (UK landlines, US, China, India).
==>₦5 daily access fee which
will be deducted once you make your 1st voice call of the day.
==>With this, a minute call will amount to N6.6 only.
Subscription Code?
Dial *420*1#. After which you dial *244*3# to Confirm/check it.

Cheapest Tariff On MTN

Update: Mtn has done their worse and increased Truetalk+ call rates to 20k/s so its currently no where near the cheapest call plan.
As for MTN, the new MTN Truetalk+ is your best bet. Its an upgrade of the previous MTN Truetalk plan. The plan offers:
==>Calls to all network in Nigeria at 11 kobo per second and 20kobo per secs to UK, USA, India, Canada and China with a daily access fee of N5 once you make your first call of the day.
==>With this, a minute call will amount to N6.6 only.

How To Subscribe To TrueTalk+?

Cheapest Tariff Plan On Airtel

On Airtel, just give it up for the new Airtel SmartTalk plan which more or less offers same rate with Eti easylife 4.0 above. Details include:
==>Calls to all networks in Nigeria at 11 kobo per second (from the very
1st second) with a daily access fee of ₦5 charged once you make your first call of the day.
==>International calls at 20k per second to USA, Canada, China,
India and UK Landline.
==>With this, a minute call will amount to N6.6 only.

Cheapest Tariff Plan On Glo

After reviewing all the tariff plan by glo, the cheapest still remains Glo Gbam Plus.
All with similar call tariff plan of 11K/sec to all networks after a daily access fee of N5.
Glo Gbam + (Plus)is Glo latest and cheapest call tariff plan that offers all prepaid Glo subscribers the ability to make calls to all networks at 11K/sec after a daily access fee of N5.
And you should note that the N5 is deducted only on days you make chargeable call, therefore you will not be charged the N5 daily access on days that you do not make any call.
With the Glo Gbam + (Plus) you can also call 5 international destinations of US, UK, China, India and Canada at a flat rate of 20k/sec and local and international SMS rates are charged at N4 and N10 respectively.

To migrate to Glo Gbam Plus, simply dial *100*6*1# with your Glo line and start enjoying the amazing call rates of 11K/sec to all networks.
You should also note that this is quite different from your normal Glo Gbam where you get 5mb daily and N5 daily access is deducted daily with or without you making call.
Now with the new Gbam Plus plan, you no longer get the daily 5mb.

Now I believe this is the time where you now make call without minding the network that you are calling and without constantly checking your account balance after every call because it is really getting cheaper by the day.
