1. It is more expensive
2. You do less online since your credit gets exhausted in no time. The solution is to subscribe to an internet data plan which takes care of the two disadvantages above.
For those on the MTN (Nigeria) network, please find the flexible current MTN (Nigeria) mobile internet plans below :
NOTE: The table below contains eight columns. So, you will need to slide or click left and right to view all the columns.
(TEXT TO 131)
|ACTIVATION CODE (USSD-TYPE AND PRESS SEND)|
|3GB(Night-9PM to 6AM)||N2500||50%||4.5GB||30 days||102||*102#|
|3GB(Weekend-Fri 9PM to Mon 6AM)||N3000||50%||4.5GB||30 days||108||*108#|
In addition to the data bonuses, there are other goodies attached to these plans. They include the following:
Data rollover – Your data plans do not expire as you can roll them over to the next plan period. All you have to do is to auto-renew your subscription before it expires and your unused data is automatically rolled into the next plan period.
MTN Data Gifting – Now you can send a data bundle as a gift by paying for the plan on behalf of the beneficiary. You can also send data to your other smart phones, modems and iPads. To do this you can: * Register for the service by sending the word “REG” to 131. You will receive a PIN which you use as follows : “GIFT 0803xxxxxxxx 106 0000. Where 106 is the code of 100MB monthly plan and 0000 is your PIN” or you can * Dial *131# and follow the the menu.
Auto-renewal – Your data plan is automatically renewed at the end of the validity period. However, auto-renewal will be possible if you have enough credit to carry the plan. Where you exhaust your plan before the end of your validity period, you will receive a message telling to buy a new plan or continue at 5 kobo per second (pay as you go rate). MTN’s wide coverage – What is the point having so much data allowance that you cannot use? MTN extensive, but not perfect, coverage is an added advantage in internet connection.
I hope this post was useful. I am sure it was, except, probably you are not an MTN subscriber. Soon , Airtel, Glo, and Etisalat subscribers will be served the current internet data plans. Meanwhile, if you are an MTN subscriber, bookmarking (saving) this web page on your browser for future reference would be a wise idea 🙂
