Optimizing Internet Subscription for MTN Data Plan in a Specified Period
Keywords:Data Plan, Subscription, Optimization, Gigabyte.
Optimizing internet subscription is the ability of an individual to be able to make decision of subscribing to a data plan with maximum benefit and minimum cost. To determine the optimal MTN monthly and yearly data plan to subscribe, linear programming was proposed and implemented to determine the optimal MTN data plan with minimum cost and maximum validity 30 days for the monthly plan and 360 days for the yearly plan. This study has shown it is better to subscribe for one daily of 1gb data plan, two days plan for 2gb, one week plan for 6gb and three times one week plan of 1000 naira for 2gb for the monthly subscription and also one daily of 1gb data plan, two days plan for 2gb, one week plan for 6gb and fifty times one week plan of 1000 naira for 2gb for the monthly subscription. This study will assist individuals as well as organizations is making decision of the data plan to subscribe to at a minimized rate. Individuals or organizations can gain insights on how to improve subscription of data plan for a specified period of time and also keeping track of the maximum gigabyte that can be affordable.
