Airtel has won the heart of many Nigerians, the reason for this does not far fetch. This was based on bomber Airtel Data and Airtime Bonus that you get whenever you recharge your line.
Airtel just like Glo network, the Airtel is one of the network in Nigeria, that put its customers in mind in their decision making.
The Good & The Bad of Airtel Data and Airtime Bonus
There are a lot of goodies that come with the Airtel Data plan, such as the Airtel 6gb + Free 4G LTE 4gb data (with its Activation code), the plan is known as people favourite. This Airtel Data Plan was equipped with numerous bonus like the double data reward and much more.
The Good side of Airtel Recharge is that you get a massive bonus, most especially when you are on Airtel 4G SIM that can earn you massive data bonus. such as the Airtel 4G, and the simple way to Upgrade to 4G with 4GB free data.

The Good of Airtel Data and Airtime Bonus to Nigerian
On the other hand, the Airtime Bonus is laudable as recharge of N1000 earn you N3000, while N2000 top-up gives you N6000. I believed you have read about Getting up to N17,000 on Airtel Smart RECHARGE (10x times airtime bonus).
And the most popular and people choice is the Airtel 8x times bonus, See Its Activation code & how to get (4GB data)
The ugly side of Airtel Data and Airtime Bonus
However, on the other side of the coin, the bad part of Airtel Data and Airtime Bonus.
Airtel like other networks in the country does separate their call bonus into either 50% for On-Net call (Airtel to Airtel) and the other 50% Off-Net call (Airtel to other networks).
Just like in the image below, N6000 was a bonus for a recharge of N2000 worth of Top-up. As N3000 was shared for the On-Net and Off-Net. While the bad of the matters was that
Meanwhile, the fraudulent nature of this Airtel Call Bonus is that your calls are initially deducted from the bonus that is meant for only off-net bonus calls (whether you call Airtel or other networks). This implies that you will be forced to finish bonus meant for other networks on both Airtel and other networks, while, from the image above other N3000 will now be useless.
You may not be able to use it to call Airtel line until you finish the other bonus.
In an ideal situation, the call charges on the bonus should be from there respective areas od allocation. Local Call bonus should have been for Local calls, while Airtel bonus for only Airtel calls.
Bottom Line on Airtel Data and Airtime Bonus
Airtel should do the needful because this was not how things are before. This to me is just a forceful way to let people call with Airtel SIM, possibly against their wish.
