Here is how you can get Free Data on Airtel Uganda

The Airtel Freaky Friday offer where 3GB is available at 5,000/= (15th Feb 2019)

Free Airtel Data in Uganda is a popular clause, but how you actually get a lasting data bundle for free is a task to crack. Given the fact that every month Airtel offers free data to customers on the network, getting in this pool is your ultimate gateway to having free MBs every month.

Although the free MBs offered every month are not on a popularity streak due to the presence of affordable offers like Airtel Freaky Friday, and the now slashed daily, weekly and monthly bundles. Getting a toast of the free data every month could save you with a download or 2.

Free Airtel Data is limited to once per month. So, every month you’re entitled to free MBs

Infact, 20MBs can help you download over 4 mp3 songs off the Internet weighed at 4MBs each assuming they’re 3-4 minute songs. On a lucky patch, 2MBs per song. So, you can get 4 tracks and even save 4MBs to send some WhatsApp text messages.

However, you should not fall prey to bulk data fraudsters that rule the Internet on a daily. Commonly, these tend to offer monthly data packages at mind-blowing prices, say 1GB monthly data at UGX 2,500.

Such offers are false, and you should always glue to the telco’s official free data offers that you can redeem. Either the monthly free 20 MBs offer, device data offers, My Pakalast combos, Airtel money prompts, or redeeming your Airtel 141 Points.
