This is really a bad news for airtel subscribers, indeed airtel free facebook service which is popularly known as freebasics, has been favouring some airtel users who can’t afford such money for data subscription, which gives them access to facebook and messenger for free without paying any kobo.
Only few of these networks in nigeria offers free facebook services which are Airtel and 9mobile and alot of people has been enjoying it. But no one expected this bad news from airtel, i guess it’s a bad way to welcome their subscribers to new year.
Some airtel users got a message from airtel network this evening saying that the freebasics (free facebook) service has been limited to a specific data volume, read the full message below.
DEAR CUSTOMER, PLS BE INFORMED THAT FREE FACEBOOK SERVICE IS NOW CAPPED AT 20MB DAILY. FOR UNLIMITED FACEBOOK EXPERIENCE, DIAL *141# TO ACTIVATE A DATA PLAN.
Though no one can tell if 9mobile will do the same to what Airtel just started this early 2018.
