MTN Nigeria is stepping up to the plate with compelling mobile data bundles that offer huge volumes of data. One of those is the MTN 9GB for 2000 naira offer. It isn’t a standard data bundle but actually a double data promo under MTN’s Mega Deal Zone.

How it works is that MTN doubles the data you get on their standard 4.5GB for 2000 naira data plan, so you get 9GB instead. Validity on the total data volume is 30 days.This makes it great value for money.

    • In our experience, if you renew before expiry date, unused data is rolled over. Bonus data is used up first, so what got rolled over during our use is the main data bundle.
