9Mobile (formally known as etisalat) BlazeOn app that lets you activate time based data plan on the network.
There have been series of bad reviews on the playstore and in the post’s comment box since the plan was launched. Based on the reviews and complaints I’ve received lately, it has come to my notice that these plans are not unlimited as they claimed it to be.
There have been wrong information about these plans, and I’m here to reveal the truth behind these time based plans. There are four different plans on 9mobile’s time based plans, which are 10mins, 15mins, 30mins, and 1 hour timely plan.
According to the misleading message by 9mobile, they said; “buy data in minutes, buy data in hours“, no further details about the plan. In this post, i will explain what you need to know about these plans.
Even at that, these time based plans came with fair usage policy and all plans are data capped. See the full list and data allocated to each plan.
- 10min plan of N50 is capped at 230MB
- 15min plan of N70 is capped at 350MB
- 30min plan of N120 is capped at 780MB
- 1hour plan of N200 is capped at 1580MB (1.5GB)
If you should ask me, i don’t really expect this from the network. The time based data plan i know use to be unlimited just as seen previously on other telcos before it was discontinued.
However, with the fair usage policy attached to 9Mobile time based plans, I think it is still one of the best data plan. Getting 1.5GB for just N200 is not that bad.
If you are an heavy user and there’s strong 9mobile network in your area, then you should consider going for this time based plan. You can either use it to update your apps on Playstore, upgrade your phone if possible, download games and more. I’m sure you’ll like it.
For now, the app is available for Android users, but might be rolled out for iOS device very soon. The plan can’t be used directly on a PC except through tethering from an Android device.
