For the first time MTN gave me two very pleasant surprises. First they increased the data cap on the 24Hrs plan from 3GB to 5GB and also reduced the cost from N10K to N8K. Second surprise was even better. Free uncapped Internet access for 3 days. How cool is that! Data cap on the daily plan has also been increased from 50MB to 150MB while PAYU is now 5Kobo/KB from 15Kobo/KB. MTN needs to clarify that though cos in a newspaper ad they advertised 1Kobo/KB.
I’d recommend MTN any day as long as your area of use is within 3.5G coverage area. Before MTN I was using Starcomms and MTN is over 3 times as fast, reliable and still cheaper than Starcomms. Yes, MTN’s customer care still sucks when compare with Starcomms but I’ve have very one incident with MTN requiring customer care attention
I guess we are already reaping the benefits of MainOne! Cool!
You can get more details about MTN’s data plans here.
UPDATE: MTN has finally solved the issue of them billing exorbitantly per kb when your data plan expires. You are now required to text RESET to 131 to activate PAYU. Cool.
By the way, if you have a 3G phone, you don’t need to buy the modem. Just use your phone as a modem on your laptop.
