Everything You Need to Know About SmileVoice Calls and Airtime

In a previous article where we covered everything about Smile 4G data, we promised we would do the same for SmileVoice calls and airtime. The thing is, Smile is known for data services, but not everyone knows you can equally use Smile for voice calls just like you do with local airtime networks in Nigeria.

You can use your Smile 4G data bundle for voice calls and SMS to anyone, anywhere in the world from your mobile phone using SmileVoice App or a Smile SIM inserted into a compatible voLTE phone.

SmileVoice service assigns you a +234-70- mobile number which you can call and receive calls with. When traveling abroad, you don’t need to roam the line as it can be used over any local WiFi but international charges would apply. However, Smile-to-Smile calls are absolutely free no matter where you are. That’s way cool!

How SmileVoice calls are charged.

SmileVoice is charged in MBs to Anytime and SmileLite data plans. For example, if you are using a 10GB Anytime (12-month) plan and you make a one-minute local call, you will be charged 10.76MBs from your data plan, which equates to ₦8.22. That in effect is a call rate of 13.7k/sec. For SmileVoice ONLY plan offers the cheapest rate of 13.3k/sec.

The table below shows MBs per minute that is deducted from your active data plan which equates to a k/sec rate:

INTERNET BROADBAND AND HOW IT WORKS

If you were the regular office guy or babe who has to stare at a laptop 24/7 and go global right from your small cubicle or closet at work, then you would already realise that you cannot, no, you must not rely on just any data provider to get vital work stuff done. There are various ways to buy data to keep your laptop plugged into the rest of the world and work more effectively. And one of these ways is through the many available internet broadband options.

Whatever the case, getting a good data connection and staying tuned has been made easier to access through the fast leading online payment platform, www.vtpass.com. At www.vtpass.com, you can easily make payments for your phone airtimes, data subscriptions, electricity bills, cable TV subscriptions. And subsequently, you can pay for your Broadband services.

When it comes to the internet connection, broadband is used to refer to speedy internet access that stays on at any point you want it to. It is also faster than the other conventional ways of accessing the net. In Nigeria, internet broadband has not always been much of an option until the recent past. But right now, Nigeria is one of the leading nations in Africa to which the superfast 4G LTE Broadband has been introduced. Despite still being a nestling sector in telecommunications, there are quite a few good companies who provide the 4G LTE Broadband services in Nigeria. And who are they? That’s what you are about to find out.

LISTS OF TOP 4G LTE BROADBAND PROVIDERS IN NIGERIA

SMILE COMMUNICATIONS NIGERIA

smile,broadband,vtpassDespite being a newcomer in offering broadband services, Smiles has become one of the three biggest contenders in the market. More than that, they offer the widest range of internet coverage. Starting from Oyo state and then moving to Lagos state, Smiles has grown at quite an admirable rate.

Recently, Smiles has partnered with Samsung to produce the first 4G LTE complaint Smartphone in Nigeria. Not just that, the portability of their broadband options and its affordability for all have made many say they are indeed the first 4G LTE service provider in Nigeria.

SWIFT NETWORK LIMITED

spectranet,broadband,vtpassThis is yet another very fast broadband service provider. They also have the advantage of being one of the first internet service providers in Nigeria. This is so because they commenced their operations in 2002. Usually, their service stations are very much accessible. Also, they have several unlimited data plans that are readily available. The one disadvantage to this network is that they are based mainly in Lagos and its availability.

SPECTRANET

spectranet,vtpassThe list will not be complete without the mention of Spectranet. They are one of the abiding internet service providers in Nigeria. And they operate at the seats of economic growth and expansion- Lagos and Abuja. Spectranet operates in the same manner as Swift.
