A saying goes, “All that glitters is not gold.” It seems this has become the case with MTN and their data plans. Not long ago, MTN Nigeria launched a new data plan offering 2 GB for N1500. A Mobilista Sir Pito, complained he has been scammed on this plan. His data was exhausted in 2 days, and here’s the story:
He said he subscribed for this plan on Wednesday, and used it a bit. Thursday, he checked his data balance, and had 1.8 GB left. On Friday, he realized he could no longer browse. He then put a call through to customer service, and was told he had exhausted his data. Below is a screenshot of his data usage:
Question is: Are these new MTN data plans a scam? Who else amongst us have been scammed in such manner? Please do share your experiences.
