Etisalat Nigeria Data Plan and Subscription Codes

Etisalat Nigeria as Nigeria’s fourth GSM operator is on the top of managing Emerging Markets Telecommunications Services (EMTS), it began commercial operations as Etisalat Nigeria in October 2008, now operating with over 14 million subscribers in Nigeria and recently launched one of the first major mobile broadband services in Nigeria named EasyBlaze, which offers efficient various Internet data plans to suite your need.  

Etisalat is presently the 15th largest mobile network operator
in the world, with an awesome total customer base of over 135 million. Frankly speaking, I love their mobile Internet services the same way I do on Airtel Nigeria as both network providers are my favorite when it comes to stable 3.7G broadband Internet connections.
