MTN Nigeria has added a new data bundle that gives subscribers 2GB for N500 which lasts for 2 days. This plan is recommended when you have some big files to download urgently.
The good news is you can actually double the data to enjoy more data volume at same price. Meaning, you can get 4GB for N500 Naira but this is for new customers who just got a new SIM card.
However, existing customers who want to tap into this double data awoof just have to tweak their phone IMEI to be eligible.
According to MTN, “People’s data needs have changed, we recognize that. Our customers need much more and we are delivering that for less,”
