Update: How to get 5 GB data for N1000 on MTN Nigeria

Posted by

The party just keeps getting better and better. This is no fluke, you can officially get 5 GB of data for N1000 on MTN Nigeria, though it’s not as straightforward as you would have hoped. The company has revamped their midnight data plans. The former plan that offers 4.5 GB (3 GB usable at night) for N2,500 is no longer applicable.

Here are the new offers:

  • 1 GB for N200
  • 2.5 GB for N500
  • 5 GB for N1000

To subscribe for any of these, Dial *198# select 2, then select 8.

Please Note:

  • The plan works from 9 pm to 6 am.
  • The plan is valid for 30 nights.
  • The plan works on all devices.

Update: 21/05/2016

MTN has killed off this plan, this was confirmed from their Twitter handle. Probably in response to a customers complaint, see the tweet below:

There you have it.
