We are in an era where there are no limitations to what you can do on the internet with mtn data plan. Top of those list is making money online, acquiring free knowledge or skills on websites like YouTube, getting to know people and even become friends with people from far away countries on social media like Facebook and Instagram.
However, gaining accessibility to such great opportunity comes with a price which in this case is a data plan provided that you already have a smartphone. Thankfully, mtn happen to be of help here. So all you have to do to buy these data is recharge your sim and you can exchange it for data bundles to access the internet.
Apart from calls, another way telecom companies like mtn makes their money is by selling internet bundles. MTN Nigeria data plan can be daily, weekly, monthly, weekend or night. They all works on Android, iPhone and internet dongles (modem, Mi-Fi, Wi-Fi etc).
In case you have heard that mtn has the largest network coverage in Nigeria, it is not an overstatement but the true. Which is why most people have no problem recommending them to friends and family. Apart from that, with mtn network you can surf the web with the speed of light though some people will argue it is not as fast as airtel.
