MTN Nigeria has introduced a new internet data plan dubbed MTN Deal Zone that offers 500% bonus worth of data for browsing. In a competitive telecom atmosphere where the Internet service provider offering the cheapest bundles wins, MTN deal zone is a welcome development.The 500% deal zone plan was launched yesterday 30th April as MTN started sending SMS messages to all customers but if you have not gotten yours, no worries as this article is meant for you.
I received the SMS from MTN yesterday offering me a deal of 500% discount on data though i’m usually not quick or first to activate offers from MTN due to past experience, but seeing that I needed data urgently, I decided to try the deal out.
My experience has been good so far. Works like every normal data plan and it’s fast hence i decided to share it with you guys. No need for any internet settings as it works fine with MTN default internet settings.
The MTN Dealz Zone offers amazing deals that enable you browse, chat and connect with family and loved ones at unbeatable rates.
Here’s a breakdown of deal zone after my chat with MTN customer care on WhatsApp
- #500 to get 750MB: 103 to 131: Weekly
- #1000 to get 1.3GB: 106 to 131: 30days
- #2000 to get 3.75GB: 110 to 131: 30days
I did a little digging and I can see the deal zone on their website and the details there is as follows:
From the above, it is clear the customer care on WhatsApp is still crappy as usual as they don’t seem to know what they are doing. The information from MTN website and that sent via SMS seems to agree. So, i will conclude that all MTN Deal Zone plans are valid for just 7 days.
I still think the MTN reseller plans are better off. Though it is N1,100 for 1GB, it is valid for 30days unlike the plans been offered on Deal Zone where you are not forced to use it with 7days.[irp]
For those who are Etisalat enthusiasts, Etisalat is still working with Tweakware VPN on PC, Android and iOS. Though this plan may not be as fast you want it to be, it is unlimited and you can browse, stream to a relative extent with it. With N1,000 or less, you are good to go.
All Airtel users can their tweak their IMEI and use Airtel BIS on Android. it cost N1,000 and offers 3GB valid for 30 days. If you like to use with other devices like PC or iOS, simply tether it via hotspot
Glo users are not left out of the equation. You can also tweak your IMEI and use Glo BIS on Android devices. And like Airtel BIS on Android, you can tether it with other devices, it cost N1,000 for 3GB.[irp]
