It was just some days ago that MTN Nigeria revised some of their old data plans and introduced some surprise offers. But they weren’t done yet. The mobile operator seems to be on a mission to obliterate the competition. One of the new plans is a 10GB data bundle that costs only N5,000. Even the recently bumped 1.3GB plan is now 1.5GB. Have a look at the new bundle plans and tariffs:
- 1.5GB plan – N1,000 – 1 month validity
- 3.5GB plan – N2,000 – 1 month validity
- 10GB plan – N5,000 – 1 month validity
- 22GB plan – N10,000 – 1 month validity
- 50GB plan – N20,000 – 3 months validity
- 85GB plan – N50,000 – 3 months validity
You can subscribe to any of the above plans by dialling *123# and following the on-screen prompts. MTN Nigeria isn’t playing. This is indeed Sparta.
10GB data for just N5,000?! Subscribers can expect other internet service providers to adjust to match or beat these offers soon. Another operator is bound to offer 10GB for N3,500 soon. for Here at MobilityArena, we expect to see a 1GB plan for N500 soon, probably from Glo or Airtel.
The 4G LTE service providers will not fold their arms either, especially as MTN is looking to launch commercial LTE service in July. Smile, Spectranet and Swift need to adjust. As for Ntel…whenever we see them, we see them.
In all, 2016 is turning bout to be a pretty exciting year for mobile/internet users in Nigeria. See Mister Mo’s What to expect from the Nigerian mobile market in 2016.
