Airtel-Zain Nigeria Internet Subscription Plans, Settings & Codes

I've never been a fan of the Zain-Airtel Nigeria network 'cause I've basically never found one genuine reason to add them to the list of telecommunication networks I belong to. Their ever changing name is enough to put me off as it sends out a clear message: "We are so not ready for business!"
