Airtel Nigeria: top up quickly
Airtel Nigeria

Airtel Networks Limited (Airtel Nigeria) is a leading mobile telecommunications company in Nigeria. According to the subscribers’ statistics released by Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) on 30 August 2019, Airtel Nigeria has 26.8% mobile telephone market share and 46.8 million subscribers, making Airtel Nigeria the second-largest telecommunications company in Nigeria. The company is a member of Airtel Africa.

In Nigeria, many of the phones on the Airtel network are prepaid mobiles. That means users have to buy airtime, also known as talk-time or mobile credit, before they can make calls, send texts and use their data.

Airtime for Airtel phones in Nigeria is usually topped up using a pin number or a scratch card which can be bought in local shops, but that is not always convenient. That is where an Airtel Nigeria internet top-up can help.

Airtel offers to receive money on an Airtel Money wallet directly (without having a bank account).

Airtel Money is a secure electronic service that enables Airtel Money wallet holders to store funds, send and receive money, make payments, and do several other transactions simply using their mobile phone.

Money is added instantly to Airtel Money accounts. You only need to make sure that the recipient already has an Airtel Money account. You will need the recipient's Mobile Money number.

Transfers to a mobile wallet are usually instantaneous, day or night. The recipient of the transfer does not need to travel to receive it.

Airtel Nigeria also offers a wide range of national and international phone plans as well as data plans.
