For what it’s what, it’s perfectly safe to say MTN Nigeria is really looking to capture the Nigerian telecom space with no room for competition. MTN has been in the news recently for a host of reasons, including acquiring Visafone at a whooping N47.5 billion.
While MTN seem to be pretty busy all round, our main focus currently is on their “MTN Surprise” deals which of late are pretty incredulous, and kind of what small and medium data users would require at their pretty cheap prices.
First we reported that MTN Nigeria offered new interesting data plans for subscribers where subscribers can choose from two pretty cheap data bundles which would normally cost more than they currently do, now we are seeing a new set of somewhat great deals from same telecom giant.
As with the previous offer, this offer is being dispersed via text messages, and USSD prompts when you check you account balance.
The current offer states you can get 5GB worth of data, this though is a mix-up, as it’s been confirmed to be 2GB worth of data, which if you ask me is still pretty much very cool. Asides the data allocation, you’ll be given a whooping 2,560 Naira for voice calls to call any network in Nigeria, all for just 2000Naira. There’s also a 500Naira plan which would give you 100MB and 1,950Naira of call credit. But, there’s a catch.
To be given the stipulated data amount and call credit, you would need to migrate to MTN TrutTalk if you haven’t already.
