Hey guys, i've got Good and Bad News for ya'll concerning one of Nigeria's fastest ISP (Internet Service Provider) Spectranet Nigeria , they will be rolling out a new plan on March 15 and it's due to perhaps the challenges facing the Nigerian economy. from the dollar to naira exchange rate fluctuation to a gradual fuel scarcity and every other thing in the country rising beyond expectation. (Pss! Sachet Water is officially N10).

Anyways i'm not here to talk about politics in the Nigerian economy, this is about Spectranet's new plan which i think might affect SME/Work At Home entrepreneurs. Well let's take a recap, if you remember i posted

Spectranet Nigeria now offers almost Unlimited Data Plan - See 2014 Prices.

sometime in 2014

Well the post however go huge views and i guess people loved the good news but this time i think it's going to be bad news for other people due to the price hike which went to over 40% increase and i think it's really sad.

 See the image below for the new price plan rolling out on the 15th of March 2016...

  • 5GB - N5,000 - 7pm-7am - Monthly - No Bonus

 

Compared to this back in 2014...


They really scrapped alot of plans tho!

Now let's see the difference using a plan as an example, back then and up till today(March 04) Spectranet Nigeria's Cheapest Night plan used to be N4,000 for 20GB 6pm to 8am but now the new price for this same plan is now N7,500 for 20GB 7pm to 7am. Old subscribers to this plan will never go for this trust me!

Well the special adviser to Spectranet Nigeria thought as much so what they did is, if you buy the 24x7 Plan which used to be N7,000 for 20GB monthly and now N10,000 for the same 20GB you get 10GB extra and UNLIMITED Night browsing(designed for people who don't like to sleep, this FREE browsing starts by 1AM and ends 7AM).

But this is the BIG KILL!!! Especially for those who used to subscribe for the N7,000 plan, N3,000 difference for an all night UNLIMITED BROWSING and 10GB extra should serve justice to that extra cost. I trust some Night surfers will abuse this but before the do they have to serve time till 1AM in the midnight before the FREE NIGHT BROWSING activates.

So the summary here is that, whether you like it or not Spectranet has upgraded their plan to take more money from your pocket to meet up with the current situation in the country. I'm certain this plan would beat their competitors Swift, Smile etc (Prove me wrong in the comments below)

Let me elaborate tho, with the dollar brouhaha and the so called Epileptic Power sector how do we expect this guys to cope ? Especially when they buy this data with Dollars from the Fiber Optics guys ? As at to Naira to One dollar is N330

I'm not justifying this hike but when a business has to Strive the customers are the ones to pay the Price!

See you guys later and hopefully my next post on Spectranet would be that they have finally brought back the 24/7 UNLIMITED PLAN!


Like it or not internet cost in Nigeria has been drastically reduced with this new subscription plans from Spectranet.

Please note I'm not here to compare data plans of any network coz that's just wasting of time, all i'm here to do is detail all the subscription plan been offered by Spectranet who was ones an UNLIMITED ISP before they were sanctioned by Jealous ISPs.





*This plans are strictly for Lagosians yet
.


To get started you'll need to buy any of Spectranet internet devices and then subscribe to any of the plan above but there's a trick and i'm going to expose it and give a recommendation.

If you notice, there are 4 different devices you are to choose from i.e:  


1 Single User Dongle LTE Freedom,  
2 Multi-User Hub CPE LTE Surf n Talk, 
3 Portable Multi-user Mifi LTE Lifestyle, 
4 Fixed Outdoor Unit LTE Outdoor 

My recommendations are(depending on what you want to use the dongle for)

Are you a loner ?
Then Option 1 is for you

Do you have a laptop, a noisy internet freak friend, an android/ios phone that sucks all your mobile data bundle all because of update?
 

Option 2 is for you coz you can connect to 5 users and they all run on the same speed.

Option 3 is just the same as option 2 the only different is that its mobile, meaning it comes with battery and you can have it put in your pocket while its fully charged.

Option 4 is for Small business owners that are in need of an internet connection(i can't recommend a home user buying this coz its waste of money).


Now here's the trick, the dongle prices vary 17,000, 14,000 or 11,000 which still depends on what data plan you choose although it's only applicable to new users(now that's trickish!)


For example: If you want the 24/7 plan worth 7,000 and you want the Multi-user Hub CPE lte Surf n Talk then it's going to cost you 11,000 to buy the dongle but if you choose the 24/7 plan worth 4,000, you are forced to buy the same dongle for a whooping 17,000! that's ridiculous. However the Spectranet team also discovered that since you can't afford a higher data plan then you better stick to the Single user dongle worth only 7,000


Anyways this is really awesome compared to other ISP in Nigeria extorting users off their money rendering provocative services! 


 Kindly drop a comment if Spectranet isn't that bad after all!
