Airtel SmartROAM – FREE Incoming Calls while Roaming


Unlike other networks in Nigeria, Airtel smartROAM is different when it comes to incoming call charges while roaming.

When traveling out of the country, do you ever worry about how you would reach you family, friends and business associate in Nigeria? 

A lot of individuals in Nigeria always experience problems with communicating with their loved ones when they travel abroad; this is possibly because they have no orientation before traveling.

All Network in Nigeria – Glo, 9mobile, MTN and Airtel – offers roaming services, the roaming service is an initiative introduced by various network provider to enable telecom users communicate effectively with their families, friends and business associate in Nigeria.

This service differs from different telecom network providers as some networks cover more international roaming destinations than others.

For example MTN Nigeria covers more international roaming destinations than Glo Nigeria; this simply means that MTN subscribers has wider destinations they can travel to and still roam with their MTN SIM.

However, Glo can still partner with more countries and also have wider coverage of international roaming destination, I have notice that these networks partnership with networks of international destinations increase as time goes by.

Airtel Africa is another network provider that offers roaming service to their esteem customers; Airtel covers more international roaming destinations than any other network provider in Nigeria.

These international roaming destinations are up to 100, isn’t that amazing?

Of course that is a huge success, for Airtel to be able to partner with over 100 countries all over the world this figure is far more than the international destinations of MTN and Glo together.

This show that Airtel is not a network to joke with when it comes to roaming as it is here to stay and achieve more success in the future. Before I go on, let me teach you how you can make money from selling recharge card online in Nigeria.
