9mobile’s “Browse With Airtime” feature
On 9mobile, it’s known as PAYG. Using 9mobile’s Pay As You Go (PAYG) service, customers can surf the web with the money in their account.
If you want to use the “browse with airtime” feature, you don’t need to have a 9mobile data plan. PAYG activation is all that is required.
With 9mobile PAYG, you can surf for N15/5 minutes. In other words, if you recharge your line with N100 and activate PAYG, you would be charged N15 for every five minutes you use the internet.
This is really cool. See below for instructions on how to subscribe to this service.
