MTN Nigeria data plan gets cheaper than ever, 10GB is now N3500 Nigerian Naira. This is coming barely two weeks, after a directives given by the Minister of Communications, Dr Isa Pantami, to the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), to compel telecommunications service providers to reduce the prices of data being offered subscribers across the country.
This directives is currently staring up a fresh data wars amongst the four (4) major telecom operators in Nigeria. Very soon, expensive data plans could become a thing of the past. Before now, Globacom, popularly known as Glo has been the king of cheaper data plans in the country. The company even boast of itself as the grandmasters of data, a reputation which is heavily marred by poor network availability virtually across all cities in Nigeria.
Of the new cheaper MTN Data Plans, subscribers will be able to get as higher as 75GB at just N15000, or even 40GB at N10000. Before now, with N3500 Nigerian Naira, you can only get 5GB MTN data. But now, N3500 will give you 10GB of data, while N2000 has 4.5GB data value to it.

From what we’ve gathered, all Telcos service providers are already complying to these directives, with MTN Nigeria being the first to make her new plans public, with other providers to follow suit soon. But it not just offering, or reducing cost of data bundles, but how are the bundles deducted when in use?
Usually a single paged SMS of 160 words cost N4 in Nigeria. But I subscribed to an Airtel call bundle few days ago, a bundle which gave me a massive N10,000 call credit at just N500 recharge card, but charged N10 for SMS instead of N4.
I personally hope the above scenario should not apply to these new data plans. But we can only find that out, after trying out these new MTN Cheap data plans.
