Alright! With all above and more interesting stats, the only problem I believe Most Nigerians are having with Etisalat Nigeria is their very expensive data plans, But I believe that should be a story of the past because Etisalat just launched new cheap data plans of 1000 naira for 1GB, 2000 naira for 2GB and so on valid for 30 days with full data rollover, This happens to be cheapest data plan in Nigeria at the moment and the best from the etisalat company.
