Etisalat Nigeria has unveiled a new package, allowing users of its Easyblaze internet service to buy one data plan and use it on four devices.
Lucas Dada, director of business segments at Etisalat Nigeria, said the advantage of the new service is it gives subscribers more control over their data usage by being able to manage it on different devices.
“Many of our premium customers own more than one data-enabled device, and for them convenience is a priority as they go about their busy lifestyles,” Dada said.
“The idea behind this service is to ensure that they have uninterrupted access to data on all their devices irrespective of where they are.”
Unlike Wi-Fi hotspots, Etisalat said the various devices do not necessarily need to be close together.
He said: “The customer’s main phone acts as the Primary SIM, making it easier to top-up, check balance and choose data plans. Customers no longer need to buy separate data bundles for each device, making data recharge more convenient. There is also added value in buying a larger data bundle, rather than several smaller bundles.”
He however noted the service could only work on new lines since they are the only ones that could allow easier duplication of the primary SIM.
