Best MTN Data Plans in Nigeria 2017
The MTN Data Plans outlined here are not all that the network provider has to offer, they are just the best ones in their catalog.
If you really want to see all (I mean all) of their internet subscriptions, dial *123# on your device.
I consider plans under this category quickies. They are plans you subscribe to just to get things done immediately and move on.
30MB For ₦100
Much like Airtel, Glo, and Etisalat, you can get 30MB of Internet data allocated to you for just a ₦100. This is 3 times better than what we used to get (i.e. 10MB for ₦100). The plan is valid for only 24 hours.

100MB For ₦200
For the first time ever, MTN has the best data plan among Internet service providers in Nigeria for a specific price point. For just ₦200, you can get 100MB to do anything you wish on the internet. This plan like the former is valid for just 24 hours.

MTN Weekly Plan
Although only one data plan is present in this category, it is way better than what you used to get before.
750MB for ₦500
Valid for 7 days, MTN offers you 750MB provided you are willing to pay ₦500.
Is it worth it?
Hell ya, if you ask me. Compare that to what you’d normally get before and tell me tides did not change. 🙂

This is the category I consider the most important. Nothing much to introduce here, just look at the plans.
1.5GB for ₦1,000
When I initially received the message from MTN, I thought it was a joke or maybe a promo which would last only a couple of weeks. I thought wrong.
For a thousand naira, you are allocated 1.5GB to surf the internet for a whole month. This plan is also available on all other Mobile Internet service providers’ catalog in Nigeria.

3.5GB for ₦2,000
If the data allocated to the former plan will be too small to handle your data needs for a full month, a better option would be to lock into this one.
At ₦2,000 you can get over double the amount of data you would normally get for the ₦1,000 plan but it still is valid for only 30 days
To subscribe to this plan,

10GB for ₦5,000
3.5GB won’t serve you for a month? This one will do then.
Particularly useful to internet power users, the 10GB MTN data plan gives you unparalleled access to the cyberspace for a full month.
At ₦5,000, the price might look scary to most, it actually is a soft spot for folks who use the internet for business on a small scale (Although Glo has a better data plan at that price).

Plan 7 is not for everyone, you could as well skip it.
22GB for 10,000
Sounds hilarious to most that someone would pay a whopping ₦10,000 to get access to the internet, but “power internet power users” will find it reasonable. 🙂
Pay MTN ₦10k and get 22GB for you online pursuits for a month.
To get this,

MTN Night Plan
Remember I said you could get up to 500MB for just ₦25 while introducing this post
Well, this is the MTN Data plan that gives you the power to do that legitimately.
It’s a bit tricky though as you’d have to be on MTN Pulse to be able to use this plan.
If you don’t mind leaving your present tariff plan, migrating to MTN pulse is a breeze. Just dial *406#, you are in!
The night plan can only be utilized between the hours of 12:00am and 4:00am and is valid for only one night.
Also, if you exhaust the 500MB allocated to you before the night is over, you cannot subscribe to the plan again for that night. In essence, it’s one plan per night.
To opt in simply have above ₦25 on your MTN Pulse line, and text “Night” to 131.
To be clear,
Text “Night” to 131
