The practice of giving is one of the strongest demonstrations that you care for someone, and one of the ways to go about it is to share or transfer your Airtel data.
Airtel data gifting allows you to share, transfer or gift your data to friends, families or acquaintances. Instead of stressing it out, Airtel Nigeria has got a nice proposition for you. The more you pay for a data plan, the greater the value.
For instance, 1.5gb airtel data plan goes for N1000 and a friend requested for Airtel data share of the same value. How do you manage this without hurting your pocket? The best solution is to activate the N1500 data plan that has a data cap of 3gb. On activation, you will be able to share your data with your tweep and still have 1.5gb(N500). This is being smart!
