2016 was really a special year on the side of MTN data plans. One of its significance was its flat rate data bundles for its users. Instead of getting 1GB at N3,000, now you get up to 1.5GB for just N1,000. Some active Pulse users were able to get up to 3GB for just N1,000 which was valid for 30 days in a 6-months subsequent subscription.
From its normal view, there is no additional shift to MTN data plans alongside its data bundles. Everything still remains almost exactly how they were in 2016 despite reccession. For benefit of reoccurring subscription, i have summarized those plans below. Just take a comfortable look at them.
