Dataway: You can overcome data insufficiency while browsing Nigerian telecoms networks by subscribing/buying Dataway Plans.
It offers a lot of internet package values, talking airtime credits, airtime & cash loans, Point of Service (POS), referral gigs, and customer coupon credits. Dataway solves data/money conversion problems in Nigeria, helping internet users to overcome unsatisfactory tariffs.
Sometimes a 10Gig subscription may not be enough for the task at hand, prompting the person to buy more than his budget. Conversely, a tariff can offer more data than is sufficient for a budget, in which case the user has an excess of data. Dataway provides a viable option in either case. For one, you can buy enough data/airtime from the Apply for Data category on the website.
Alternatively, you can opt to sell unused data in exchange for money. All of these processes are possible on the platform.
Don’t forget that the site allows users to pay utilities and any other payments via the media. Read on below for more details about the services.
Dataway Overview: What to Expect
Broadly speaking, you can expect three things from the platform.
- Buy/Sell Unused data regardless of the network
- Pay for utilities and other supported mobile payment options via the platform
- Refer people to the available tariffs and earn credit.
Accordingly, the various subscriber benefits require members to pay the appended subscription plan. For example, you can opt for the one-time membership fee (at ₦2000.00) or go for the ₦2000.00 per Month tier.
Further, you can expect lots of loyalty perks from the referral cache _ airtimes, credits, resalable airtime/credits, and payment of bills. As it happens, the benchmark referral commission is fifty percent (50%).
So, how can you trust that the site is legit?
According to a PR source on the internet, the company is supposedly run jointly by AMMG Group and Unique Way Enterprises, with an operating CAC index of BN-3175683. However, the Rc Number showed a different company.
Actually, the CAC-registered entities are:
Dataways ICT Services (Reg Number is 3284354 while Entity Type is Business Name)
Dataway Limited (Reg Number is 817591 while the Entity Type is Company)
Dataway has offices in many parts of Nigeria, with outlets for reaching a broad community. Also, it supposedly has enough heuristics to ensure timely payment of ROIs (typically in less than a day). You can see some of the listed locations in the clip below.
