Airtel YouTube Flex is the brand new and flexible way to use YouTube and is exclusive to Airtel subscribers, the acclaimed Smartphone Network in Nigeria! Interestingly, there is a VPN tweak you can apply to the YouTube Flex plan that will enable you to browse all sites, both on PC and smartphones.
Coming in two packages: a weekly plan of 150MB and it cost N100 while the Monthly plan of 500MB and it cost N200, the YouTube Flex plan from Airtel becomes one of the cheapest, pushing Glo which is now popular among Nigerians, to the second position.
With YouTube Flex, Airtel subscribers can now enjoy more of the videos and music they love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world. If used alongside YouTube Go that helps you use YouTube offline, the data size can be maximized.
