Wouldn’t you like to know about these newly launched MTN data plans that could potentially cut down your data bills?
If you are reading this, I’m guessing you are looking for the most reasonable MTN Data plans in Nigeria at the moment.
Data plans outlined in this post could cut down the amount of money you used to spend on internet subscription by up to 50%.
What am I saying?
Well, you know normally it used to be 350MB for ₦1,300 or even the beefy 2015MB for ₦2,015, now you can have almost 2GB for just a thousand naira!
Wait, it gets better:
Do you know you can even get 500MB for just ₦25?
Here’s the interesting part:
These plans can be used on any device. So whether you are browsing with an Android smartphone, a PSP console, a laptop (through your modem), an IOS (Apple) device, these plans will work effortlessly for you.
Stick with me, and you’ll find out how.
Best MTN Data Plans in Nigeria 2017
The MTN Data Plans outlined here are not all that the network provider has to offer, they are just the best ones in their catalog.
If you really want to see all (I mean all) of their internet subscriptions, dial *123# on your device.
I consider plans under this category quickies. They are plans you subscribe to just to get things done immediately and move on.
50MB For ₦100
Much like Airtel, Glo, and Etisalat, you can get 50MB of Internet data allocated to you for just a ₦100. This is 5 times better than what we used to get (i.e. 10MB for ₦100). The plan is valid for only 24 hours.
To opt-in to this plan,
150MB For ₦200
For the first time ever, MTN has the best data plan among Internet service providers in Nigeria for a specific price point. For just ₦200, you can get 150MB to do anything you wish on the internet. This plan like the former is valid for just 24 hours.
MTN Weekly Plans
Although just two data plans are present in this category, they are way better than what you used to get before.
500MB (+250MB bonus) for ₦500
Valid for 7 days, MTN offers you 500MB (plus 250MB bonus usable between 1 am and 7 am) provided you are willing to pay ₦500.
Is it worth it?
Hell ya, if you ask me. Compare that to what you’d normally get before and tell me tides did not change. 🙂
To get this plan,
150MB for ₦300
Also valid for 7 long days, you can get a hundred and fifty megabytes of internet data to surf the web for up to a week for just ₦300.
This is the category I consider the most important. Nothing much to introduce here, just look at the plans.
1GB (+ 500MB Bonus) for ₦1,000
Much like the 500+250 MB weekly plan outlined above, for a thousand naira, you get one gigabyte of ‘normal’ data and about 500MB bonus data (usable between 1 am and 7 am) valid for a month.
1.5GB for ₦1,200
Introduced in October of 2017, with a thousand-two you can get 1.5GB which is usable 24-7 valid for 30 days.
To get this plan,
2.5GB (+ 1GB Bonus Data) for ₦2,000
If the data allocated to the former plan will be too small to handle your data needs for a full month, a better option would be to lock into this one.
At ₦2,000 you can get over double the amount of data you would normally get for the ₦1,000 plan but it still is valid for only 30 days
To subscribe to this plan,
5GB for ₦3,500
Similar to a plan on 9mobile’s catalog and also introduced in October 2017.
To get the 5GB for ₦3,500 plan,
10GB for ₦5,000
3.5GB won’t serve you for a month? This one will do then.
Particularly useful to internet power users, the 10GB MTN data plan gives you unparalleled access to the cyberspace for a full month.
At ₦5,000, the price might look scary to most, it actually is a soft spot for folks who use the internet for business on a small scale (Although Glo has a better data plan at that price).
To get this plan,
22GB for 10,000
Sounds hilarious to most that someone would pay a whopping ₦10,000 to get access to the internet, but “power internet power users” will find it reasonable. 🙂
Pay MTN ₦10k and get 22GB for you online pursuits for a month.
To get this,
MTN Night Plan
Remember I said you could get up to 500MB for just ₦25 while introducing this post
Well, this is the MTN Data plan that gives you the power to do that legitimately.
It’s a bit tricky though as you’d have to be on MTN Pulse to be able to use this plan.
If you don’t mind leaving your present tariff plan, migrating to MTN pulse is a breeze. Just dial *406#, you are in!
The night plan can only be utilized between the hours of 12:00 am and 4:00 am and is valid for only one night.
Also, if you exhaust the 500MB allocated to you before the night is over, you cannot subscribe to the plan again for that night. In essence, it’s one plan per night.
To opt-in simply have above ₦25 on your MTN Pulse line, and text “Night” to 131.
