How to Subscribe to a 9mobile (Etisalat) Data Plan

From using social media, search engines, applications, to playing online games and all, you’d agree with me that data is the new life, isn’t it?

In this age, if you don’t have data, you’re close to not existing – or say some of us feel disconnected from the rest of the world.

9mobile (formerly Etisalat) is one of the network providers in Nigeria. Aside the primary calling services, it allows its users browse the internet too. However, we both know you can only surf the internet if you have data.

In this article, I’ll show you how to subscribe to or buy a data plan on 9mobile so could get connected and browse the internet seemlessly too. All you need do is follow through calmly.

Subscribing to a 9mobile Data Plan Using USSD Codes

There are different ways to subscribing to a data plan, and one very common method is to use USSD codes.

Buying a 9mobile Data Plan from Your Bank Account

Banking institutions have improved their services so much that you could do a lot of things right from the comfort of your mobile phone. One of those lots of things is subscribing to a mobile data plan directly from your bank account.

Buying 9mobile Data Plan from Your Bank Account

Although the steps to buying a data plan from your account differs for each bank, there’s, however, similarities in the whole process. The procedures below will work for most banks:

  • From the mobile number you registered with your bank, dial your bank’s USSD code, navigate and select Data or so, select which network (in this case 9mobile) you’re subscribing, select the plan, enter your PIN or token and confirm the transaction.
  • If you use a mobile banking app instead, log in, navigate to and select Data, select 9mobile, select your desired plan, input your PIN and confirm the transaction.
