Youtube Flex: How to get 500mb at N200 and 150mb at N100 on Airtel

YouTube Flex is the latest data package from Airtel Nigeria. As it is titled, the plan is mainly for streaming videos on the YouTube. The Airtel YouTube Flex comes in two packages: Weekly and Monthly plan. The weekly plan is 150MB and it cost N100 while the Monthly plan is 500MB and it cost N200.

The plan is designed to work for YouTube streaming only. Now the question is, how can I use the data for accessing other websites? Stay calm, we have a means for you, thanks to VPN tunnel apps, most especially, the Psiphon modded versions.

To Activate Airtel YouTube Flex Data

  • Simply dial *141*4# and select from the pop up option on your screen
  • Select 1 to activate the Weekly plan of 150MB for N100 
  • Select 2 to activate the Monthly plan of 500MB for N200

Now that you have activated the data package then you will be granted access to stream YouTube videos.

NB: This is not a huge data which you can use for streaming on YouTube the way you would want to. 500MB may not even enough to watch a film on YouTube, since it had enough validity period, I suggest you use it wisely. For browsing and chatting, that we really save the data. Back to the subject of study.

To achieve this, you need Psiphon VPN.Or other VPN application; the likes of Queencee, Netify, syphon shield…
