Most GSM companies in Nigeria nowadays tend to offer a value added service called a data plan. It is a kind of service that allows people to access the internet on the platform of their preferred network.

What does a data plan really mean? Well, in my own definition, a data plan is basically a contract plan offered by an ISP that allows a subscriber to access the internet based on a specified amount of data downloaded and this is normally measured in bytes e.g. Megabytes(MB).

A data plan basically has to do with the allocation of data to a subscriber from his network to allow him access the web based on a data limit.

Data plans are mostly limited in size and for higher sizes or bytes, the total cost may be discounted so as to favour a patronizing customer using a spend more save less approach. A data plan may also have a time period for which it is expected to remain active and this is normally referred to as the validity period.
