Earlier this week, Ntel announced a drastic change to the Wawu plans, effectively killing the Ntel Wawu data plans we all fell in love with. These were the old Wawu plans:
|Plan||Data Allocation||Bonus Data (500%)||Total Data Allocation||Price (NGN)||Validity Period (days)|
Here are the new Ntel Wawu data plans:
|Plan||Price (NGN)||Main Data||Bonus Data (500%)||Total Data Allocation||Validity Period||Otder Benefits|
|WAWU 2000||2,000||2GB||4GB||6GB||7 Days||8k/s for national calls|
|WAWU 4000||4,000||4GB||12GB||16GB||7 Days||8k/s for national calls|
|WAWU 8500||8,500||9GB||36GB||45GB||14 Days||8k/s for national calls|
|WAWU 10000||10,000||16GB||80GB||98GB||14 Days||8k/s for national calls|
With the introduction of Ntel Wawu, many flocked to Ntel but this took a toll on their internet speed. It even went as far as crippling their customer service. I’m guessing it just wasn’t sustainable despite being a brilliant way to grow their user base. Another school of thought believes they were muscled in line by the big boys.
Ntel had been having problems for months now so we all kind’a saw this coming. I personally feared they would close shop but ditching the old Wawu signals they’re still in the game. Regaining users trust will surely be an uphill battle.
Users couldn’t activate data plans on their own and always had to go – cap in hand – requesting bundle activation on their social media pages. Some lucky ones could rivately reach out to Ntel Reps for instant bundle activation.
I for one will miss the old Ntel Wawu plan as it was my go-to data plan on my Android TV box. I’m however grateful to them for it while it lasted. There’s been outrage froom their fans at their social media pages.
