MTN 3.5G Mobile Broadband service helps you stay connected at almost any time, and makes your business and personal information and entertainment as mobile as you are, when you’re working within MTN’s coverage areas. Where 3G HSDPA coverage is not available, customers will be able to use MTN’s GPRS/EDGE network that already covers most of Nigeria!
You can access the MTN 3.5G Mobile broadband service by using your MTN SIM with one of several types of devices of your choice: MTN Fastlink E220 uSB Modem, MTN Fastlink E630 data card, 3G broadband Router or 3G/HSPA compatible mobile device.
MTN offers you a variety of economical data tariffs to choose from. You may decide to use the MTN Mobile Data service on a Pay-per-use basis (according to your existing tariff plan) basis. You may also choose to buy a Data Bundle/Plan. Either way, you are not charged for the amount of time you spend, but for the amount of data (volume) that you upload or download when using the MTN 3.5G or GPRS Data Service.
Data bundles are ideal if you have an idea of how much you want to spend on data as well as how much data you need. These bundles have been designed to reduce the cost of data usage provided you stay within the bundle limits.Each data bundle has an in-bundle rate and an out-of-bundle rate. You pay a flat fee for all data in-bundle, but as soon as your in-bundle limit for your subscription type is exceeded, the out-of-bundle rate will apply per MB.
Whether you are an occasional, regular or heavy user, MTN Nigeria has a data plan that suits your lifestyle. MTN data plans work on mobile devices and computers. You can rollover your unused internet data to the next month subscription and you can also send a data bundle to your friends and loved ones, by simply paying for the data bundle on behalf of the person.
Once you have identified the prepaid bundle plan that best suits you, simply text the migration code for the plan to 131 (see table below) and you will be switched immediately to the bundle plan of your choice and the corresponding migration fee deducted from your account. You will also receive a message on your phone confirming successful migration.
