I was watching a news report on mobile internet services on BBC click and got to know that data services could cost as much as £7.50 per MB is you go online in a country outside the UK but within the UK is costs around £0.20 per MB.
Now £0.20 equals around N50 using the rates used at http://www.oanda.com/currency/converter/. This is at a rate of N250 to £1. Now how much does a Megabyte cost in Nigeria is you are subscribed to a mobile internet service on networks like MTN, Glo or Airtel? Well MTN Nigeria as well as Airtel Nigeria are currently offering 1MB for N10 = £0.04 = $0.06 in their N100(10MB) a day mobile data service
Glo Nigeria is also offering 1MB for N3.33 = £0.01 = $0.02 in their N500(150MB) a day data plan. Those are the rates I have seen these telecom networks offering such mobile services to subscribers at competitive rates and it is quite cheaper than what is offered outside Nigeria.
