Notes: The table above represents the Peak data rates across the MTN network, and also shows the average transfer rate of data when accessing popular internet sites using the MTN Network. It should be noted that the actual speed experienced by the end user could be different from the table above due to other limitations outside of MTN’s control, such as:
  • The resource used (e.g device type) being used to access the mobile data service.
  • The availability of the server being accessed (internet site, mail server, etc.)
To deactivate auto-renewal for any MTN Data bundle, send no to 131. (Worked for me)

  1. Hello,

    Please what is total data allowance? I can see that in some cases it is different from the bundle plan. Thanks.

  2. Hi,

    The Data Allowance is the actual data bundle you'll get. MTN is doing a promo that gives you more data allowance for the 100MB and above bundle you buy.

    So the Bundle Plan name still remains the same, but the actual data allowance you'll get is more and is known as the Total Data Allowance.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. hi, I have been having poor internet connection on my Airtel internet network, I don't know if it is a general problem or just me alone, I have hardly used up to 100mb in the past three to five days. I am frustrated out of Airtel and have to purchase Etisalat internet. Are you also experiencing the same problem?

  4. Hi,

    I have no similar experience so far. Airtel internet has been smooth and fast for me.

    From my experience as once a GSM field Engineer, when they are expanding (or upgrading as the prefer to call it) they often use the channels previously allocated to data/internet for voice calls. It's the quickest way to take up more voice calls, but it impacts on internet services. But this affects EDGE/GPRS only.

    Here's what I suggest, force your phone/modem to use 3G/HSPA network and you might not experience the slowness anymore.

  5. Mtn is extorting us, with 1000 using etisalat and zain u can get 1GB.

  6. Lol!

    It seems you are convincing the BIS pack with Data Bundle pack.

    MTN, Zain and Etisalat all have similar data bundle plans (they always try to match one another). No one of them will give you 1GB for N1000 in its Data bundle pack series.

    Only Airtel allows you to use the 1GB on its N1000 BIS plan on any phone and device.

  7. Good one bro. Pls I need help, can you or somebody pls tell me how to get or activate the 1GB ~ N1000 BIS plan on an android device?

  8. Hi Teehay,

    For MTN BIS, no idea.

    I only know for Airtel BIS

  9. i need to deativate the daily data bundle i activated but i dont no the deativation code

  10. Hi,
    You had earlier said that to get a possible faster speed using Airtel modem, it could be forced to use 3G/HSPA.
    How do you force the modem to do that in the case of Airtel modems.

    Thank you.

  11. Hi Elijah,

    You can force the modem to use 3G/HSPA via the modem software, the settings part. Select 3G only.

  12. Hi Seun,

    SMS reset to 131 to deactivate your MTN Data bundle.

    Again, it's reset to 131.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for dropping by!

  22. Hi Dan,

    Auto renewal is activated by default. Just subscribe to any data bundle you prefer, it will auto renew without you doing anything.

  23. Check you iPhone settings. Internet is enabled for all MTN SIMs ( well, almost all). Check to see that you've not disabled internet on the iPhone or the wrong access point is selected.

  24. Hi Obidi,

    If you mean the 3.5G (HSPA) service, then you don't have to do anything. Your Galaxy Tab 3 will access it automatically. Well, as long as you enabled 3G on the Galaxy Tab.

  25. I will like to know if the MTN 3GB(Night)boundle will work on Lumia phone bcus i heard it only works on PC/Tablets.


  27. Excellent info. Thanks for letting me know

  28. I will not use mtn data again disappointed

  29. Please count me out from using mtn data

    1. Lol. I guess we are many who have complaints against MTN data. Mine is the almost impossible to switch off auto-renew.

  30. Please i subscribed for Mtn monthly blackberry fro my phone, but i have not used it for up to a week and its telling me that i dont have any data left

  31. please i need an advise why is better between the glo and Mtn blackberry subscription?

  32. I subscribed to an MTN bundle which promised 2015GB FOR N2015. Before doing this I'd subscribed to a different data bundle yet to be fully used up. Presumption being that the would be merged. To my great disappointment, this has not been the case. Questio: How might I retrieve my N2015 subscription?

  33. an app was created just for the purpose of this article on android,
