With the long awaiting 3.75G network, etisalat has just rolled out a data service with HSPA+ technology called Easyblaze. According to etisalat, “the easyblaze plans provide you high speed access to the internet. They work on our brand new state of the art data network built with HSPA+ technology”. I believe this one will be much effective in terms of browsing speed as much as their EDGE network which happens to be one of the best in Nigeria. With the HSPA+ technology, you have a top speed threshold of 42Mbps. However, the actual speeds you can achieve will depends on some factors such as device used, location coverage, signal strenght and the service you are trying to access (like downloads, streaming, internet browsing, etc).
Features of Easyblaze
This new service comes with some new features as follows:
Auto-renewal: Automatic renewal allows subscribers to purchase any of our data plans, as long as the subscriber has sufficient airtime credit in his account.
Data Roll-Over: This allows a subscriber to rollover unused MB of the current data plan provided a new data purchase can be made before the end of validity period of the unused or active data plan.
Product speed cap: Ability to apply cap on the speed per product and PAYG speed cap.
