New MTN Internet Data Plan Subscription Fees and Codes 2012

MTN Data Plans 2012

UPDATE August 11, 2012: Looks like MTN Nigeria is scared of losing tons of business and they’ve reverted back to the old plans again. I just hope they’ve found a way of managing the congestion on the network from their ever increasing night plan users. A download speed throttle would go a long way in curbing the menace.

You can still access the old data plan subscription fees and codes at the following links: Source 1, Source 2, Source 3

Update November 22, 2012: MTN and GLO have launched an internet data war. They’ve increased their data allowances across the board. Find the revised data plans in the table below

Looks like MTN has decided to offload “leechers” on their network in a bid to improve their internet services as they’ve just revised their data plans leaving the cheapest plans out of the mix.

Subscribers now have to pay as much as N7,000 to access 3GB of monthly internet data.

I bet you that it won’t be long before Globacom Nigeria and the rest follow suit and when that happens, the Nigerian populace that love their cheap internet would have no option than to get a BlackBerry device.

Quick Notice: If you have excellent Etisalat reception in your area, you might want to check out these offers of 1GB data allowance for N2,000 and 2GB data allowance for N3,000. Click here for more details.

    This is crazy man. They should pack their outfit and go back to SA

    • Chukwudi Emmanuel Udegbunam says:

      Sincerely speaking, if this would improve the delivery of their internet services then I’m down with it. If not, it’s total BS

  4. otobong says:

    Wait! How can I pay N3,500 naira for 1GB when I can still get the same 1GB with half of that amount on Airtel. MTN must be joking.

    • Chukwudi Emmanuel Udegbunam says:

      @otobong: lol. Remember that Airtel is actually offering that 1GB as a BB plan. We are just lucky that it can be tethered. (As in works on PC too )

  5. macaulay says:

  6. Emeka says:

    I have a serious problem. I want to add to my internet bundle plan (3GB night plan) or deactivate it. My existing bundle has only 20MB left and I need to add more data for a particular file I want to download. I can’t start the download only ro run out of data and have to re-subscribe. The download server might restart. Is it possible to deactivate my current plan and subscribe to a fresh one or can I subscribe and roll-over my existing data into the new one? Please I need advice urgently. Thanks.

    • Chukwudi Emmanuel Udegbunam says:

      @Emeka: I’m not sure if MTN has started the data roll over thing. Your best option is to use a software like Internet Download Manager to initiate the download then check to see if it’s resumable or not
