Freebasic is a platform that allows airtel subscribers who runs out of data plan and airtime to use facebook and other websites on freebasic for free but the disadvantage of this service is you will not be able to view all images and videos on facebook. You will also not be able to download any media file while on freebasic but it’s still a nice option to keep you connected online. Personally, I use freebasic sometimes to read posts on Nairaland forum, Naijaloaded and some top websites and blogs on freebasic. So you can equally utilize the opportunity for your own benefit although it’s not a data plan but I included it here to inform you of such offer in case you don’t know.

SOLUTION TO SOME DATA SUBSCRIPTION ISSUES
Sometimes, after subscribing for an Airtel data plan, your phone still can’t brows or connect to the internet. In this situation, you must make sure there is enough and strong data service in your phone. I mean the E, Edge, H, H+ and 4G signals. Another cause of this problem is wrong APN configuration so apply the following settings manually if yours isn’t working.
AIRTEL NG APN SETTINGS
- APN: internet.ng.airtel.com
- Username: internet
- Password: internet
After applying the above configuration, you should be able to browse with your active data bundle and packages.
TIPS: Once you subscribe to any data plan on Airtel, there will be an auto-renewal option so you either select “1” for allowing autorenewal or select “2” for disabling autorenewal option.
There is also data rollover service anytime you resubscribe before the expiry date of your active plan.
The network has also fixed the issue of data zapping which was prevalent two years ago so now you get value for your money. All these features makes Airtel one of the best data networks in Africa and Nigeria in particular.
