Posted on: November 30, 2019, 02:04:36 PM
You need enough data to be able to watch live football matches online, watch YouTube videos or connect your IPTV. It is recommended that you go for an unlimed data plan for unlimited entertainment and fun but what if you cannot afford it.

As far as I am concerned even the so-called unlimited data plan still has their limitations but what if I can show you cheap data plans that can help your watch Live football matches on your smartphone, watch movies on Youtube and supply data connection to your IPTV decoder.

How much data can a full live football match consume?

It's easy to calculate how much data needed to watch a full live match, you can download the Startimes mobile app from google play and use it to watch live matches which helps you determine how much data you need. Specifically, you can use between 150MB to 250MB to watch a complete match and am sure about that. You will decide to watch in low SD quality, to reduce data consumption or in High Definition (HD) and Ultra high definition (UHD) which consumes more data but best in terms of clarity.

Well, I am not going to discuss Smile 4G or Swift 4G data provider, we are going to concentrate on mobile telecommunication in Nigeria such as MTN, GLO, and Airtel. Without any hesitation, we are going to start with the MTN data plan, meanwhile, the data plan I will be showing you below is just some selected plan suitable for online video streaming.
