The second half of 2021 is starting on a good note for the teeming customers of Smile Nigeria as they have become happy beneficiaries of a unique TRUEUnlimited data plan promotion courtesy of the pioneer 4G LTE broadband provider in West Africa since Tuesday 12th July, 2021.
In a statement on Wednesday, the company said that “through this TRUEUnlimited promotion, Smile offers all its existing and new customers unique Internet services without limits. Within the three months that the promo will last, everyone currently on Freedom 3Mbps plan with a 180GB FUP, valid for 30 days at the cost of N20, 000, will enjoy TRUEUnlimited Freedom 3Mbps plan with NO FUP and NO LIMIT for 30 days at the same price.”
“Those on Freedom 6Mbps plan with 300GB FUP, valid for 30 days and costing N24, 000, will, in turn, enjoy TRUEUnlimited Freedom 6Mbps plan with NO FUP and NO LIMIT for 30 days at the same price of N24, 000.”
