Lagos - Airtel Nigeria announced new tariff plans for BlackBerry smartphone users on its network.

The subscription charge for the BlackBerry Complete service has been adjusted from N1 400 (US$8,4) to N1000, while the rate for Absolute Plan has been pegged down from N3 000 to N1 500.

The telecom giant has also reintroduced BlackBerry Pay-For-Two-Get-One-Free plans, tagged Airtel 2-PLUS-1 Offer, which enables customers to make upfront payment for two subscriptions of any of the daily, weekly or monthly service options and get the third subscription free of charge.

Speaking on the offerings, Deepak Srivastava, Airtel Nigeria’s chief operating officer and executive director, said the new tariff plans provided yet another reason for Nigerians to port to Airtel and experience the power of its 3.75G network.

“By rolling out pocket friendly tariff plans and introducing yet again our unique 2-PLUS-1 offer, we are confidently providing the public, especially the youth, not just the opportunity to witness our data efficacy, but also to make informed choices and activate these services to enjoy the benefits that come with it as we strive to become the most loved brand in the daily lives of Nigerians,” Srivastava, stated.

According to the Nigeria Communications Commission, Airtel's market share in Nigeria is now at 20 percent, making it the third largest mobile firm.
