Airtel Nigeria has unveiled SmartSpeedoo, a service that allows customers experience real data while browsing at affordable tariff and enjoy free megabytes.
The solution, which can be activated by using *141#, was unveiled during a press briefing in Ikeja, Lagos.
Speaking on how it works, its Vice President, Data & Digital Services, Nitin Anand said customers using Smart Speedoo enjoy low rate in addition to free data the more they browse.
“When a customer uses up to 10mb (megabyte) at 1kobo/kb (kilobyte), Airtel gives 10mb free; when the usage gets to 50mb, the browsing rate drops to 0.5kobo/kb, then the user gets 50mb free. When the customer’s usage reaches 100mb, the rate drops further to 0.2kobo/kb and the user gets 100mb free,” Anand explained, noting that the cycle continues every month, thereby giving Airtel customers the Free Surf experience.
While commenting on the superfast 3G internet, which Smart Speedoo rides on, Anand noted that Airtel has the largest deployment of 3G Internet Provider (IP) sites in the country to enable the telco offer internet speed of up to 42mbps, which is very close to the long term evolution (LTE) speed.
