With the launch of Smile’s Unlimited Premium plan, we broke to the news that they will be launching a Smile Unlimited Lite plan as well, what we didn’t know at the time was that they had plans for not one, but three new plans to add to their existing line-up.
The first and probably most interesting of the three new plans is Smile Unlimited Lite, which costs N10,000 for unlimited internet, but starts with the speed capped at 2Mbps for the first 30GB and is subsequently slowed down to 1Mbps from the 31st GB to the end of the plan.
The two other plans are a 7GB plan for N5000 and a 15GB plan for N10,000. All the plans come with a 30-day validity period and can be rolled over, except the unlimited plan (for obvious reasons).
The one catch is that these plans are ONLY available to Smile customers OUTSIDE Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt at the moment, and there’s no gist as to when (if at all ever) they would be available to Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt subscribers.
Also, if you’ve had plans to get a router for a while now, but have been putting it off, I’ll advice you get one today or tomorrow if you can, because a lil birdie tells me that the prices will go up from Monday (thanks to the current dollar rate) from N30,800 for a router bundled with the unlimited premium plan, to N35,800 for the router bundled with 20GB or N40,800 for the router bundled with the unlimited premium plan.
