Airtel Smarttrybe is the latest special plan from Airtel,
designed to keep youngsters up to date with the latest trends. On
airtel smarttrybe, users get to enjoy awesome call rates for as low as
11kobo per second across all networks and night browsing bundles of
1.5GB from 12am to 5am.
Very similar but better than MTN pulse, Airtel smarttrybe
also offers some other life enriching services and privileges. They
include, 1GB data for as low as N500 valid for 7 days, free data bonus
n recharge, and special weekend deals that could hand you as much as
200Mb data + 30 minutes free voice call to use over the weekend when
you recharge N200.
The difference between MTN Pulse and Airtel Smarttrybe is that
the 11k/sec call rate on smarttrybe becomes effective after you have
made 50 seconds of call at 20k/sec. From the 51st second you get to
enjoy a call rate of 11k/sec for the rest of the day, across all
networks. Whereas, pulse charges you 11k/sec across all networks after
you have spent N10 on voice calls.
*Smarttrybe charges a flat rate of 20k/sec for all international calls
to USA, UK, CHINA, INDIA and CANADA. All other destinations attract
the usual rates.
*The 15Mb data is given upon recharge of a minimum of N200 in a week.
The main catch of the smarttrybe plan is its happy hour,which is
far better than pulse(in a way). On the smarttrybe you can get as much
as 500Mb for N25 and 1.5GB for N50. And considering airtel’s mobile
data speed on 3G network, its a good bargain no doubt. But there’s one
snag though, there have been complaints that airtel charges double on
data usage. I experienced on their network countless times before I
switched to MTN. But still the efficiency of the network and the price
isn’t something that a lot will resist easily.
Another downside on smarttrybe is their free 30 minutes weekend
voice call bonus, its just for air tel to air tel. I would prefare the
scrap it entirely or add more value to it by enabling it’s use across
