Nigerians And Kenyans – See Who Pays More For Data Services



Nigerians And Kenyans - See Who Pays More For Data Services 1
Data Subscription in different countries is usually different due to the economic conditions and operating costs of the Telecom Companies in each country. Airtel for example ,offers cheaper data services in its home country – India , than it does in Nigeria. In this post I collaborated with Dickson Otieno of, a Kenyan Tech Blog. We’ll be comparing the data plans in both countries and at the end we’ll be calculating who spends more on data.

Nigerians And Kenyans - See Who Pays More For Data Services 2

I believe this will let us know how much it costs citizens of both countries to access the internet and of course those who have enough data to waste on Twitter wars. If you are an active twitter user , you must have come across the #NigeriaVsKenya hashtag sometime. Well just in case you haven’t brace yourself, it’s about to get messy – Check out a couple of tweets with that hashtag –

That’s just 3 tweets out of thousands of tweets on Twitter. So back to the ultimate question –

Who spends more on data ?

Table Consolidated by, @TechishKenya

For 1GB , Kenyans spend an average of 240-499 KES that’s between N850- N1600 (for normal data plans)

Nigerians spend between  N1000 – N1200 (KES 280 – KES 336 ) for 1GB and 1.5GB data plans

For 3GB – Kenyans spend between KES 499 – KES 999  that’s between N1700 – N3400

Nigerians spend between N2000-N2500 .( KES- 560 – KES 700)

So It seems Kenyans actually spend more on data services. Nigerian Telcos are less expensive than their Kenyan counterparts. Of course , If there’s an error in this post, feel free to let me know. Don’t forget to tweet this and share as well.

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way 3

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way 4

Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way 5

The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.

From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.

Here are the following specifications from the teaser;

• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display

• Android 9 – the latest android version

• In-display Fingerprint sensor

• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM

• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight

• 3500mAh battery

I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.

What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.

It is still months before Apple unveil their next iPhone, but that has not done enough to avert the ton of leaks online.

The release for the iPhone 11 is set for September this year. Apart from the aesthetics and designs, not much is known about its specifications.

Although there have also been rumors of the iPhone 11 spec sheet, history has severally proven those type of speculations to be unreliable.

Here are the leaked photos. What do you think?
