How To Borrow Data From Airtel NG

Airtel is yet to provide subscribers with a data borrowing service even though their airtime loan service has been up and running for years now. However, you can still browse the internet when your line is low on subscription by borrowing airtime and using it to browse directly or buy a data plan with it, see how to borrow airtime from airtel here.

Update - 09/2019: You can now borrow data from Airtel Nigeria by dialing *500# and select from the data bundle options that are available to borrow on your line.

You can also purchase a cheaper airtel night data plan, it would serve the same purpose as a normal data plan, though its downside remains that it can only be used at night.

How To Borrow Data From Etisalat (EasyCredit)

Etisalat Easy Credit is a service that allows you borrow airtime from Etisalat and use it for calls, purchase data plans or send messages, just like Airtel, Etisalat hasn't introduced its data borrowing service thereby you would have to borrow airtime on your and use it to subscribe to a data bundle.

There are different airtime values you can borrow from Etisalat, they include options of N50, N100, N200, N500 and N1000, they all come with a 15% service charge and would be deducted on your next recharge, read more about Etisalat's airtime loan service here.
