Gone are the day when internet data were cheap, when we could actually buy 3GB of data for 1K and still not run out of data before the month ended. I guess the Android and iOS platforms are to be held for the zapping of data nowadays, or maybe you just don’t know how to manage your data. Some of you may even think the 4G technology is contributing to your data running out quickly but that’s not the case, you’ll be using the same amount of data on 2G, 3G and 4G to download a 10GB file but at a different speed.
4G is faster and because of that, the amount of data to be used leaves faster, download the same file over a 3G network, you’ll say it last longer, that’s simply because the network is slower. I hope you get the logic?
Well, the topic were really interesting in here is how to get 10GB data free on MTN, so, lets get straight to that.

Before now, when you upgrade your MTN 3G SIM to 4G, MTN gifts you 4GB of data free plus 100% data bonus for 6 months. Now, however, MTN Nigeria has upped the data gift to 10GB plus 100% double data bonus for 3 months and 25% data bonus from the 4th month to 6th month.
I’m not sure if I should call this a Ramadan special offer or it’s just a way of MTN getting its subscribers to move to 4G technology. The telecom company already covers at least about 50% rural areas and not all of its subscribers have upgraded their 3G SIM to 4G. I guess they should have just made the upgrade automatic like 9mobile but I guess we wouldn’t be talking about this offer if that had happened.
When you upgrade your MTN 3G SIM to 4G, you’ll enjoy the following benefits;
- Free 10GB data on your line to surf the internet
- 100% data bonus on every data bundle purchased starting from 500 for the next 3-months.
- 25% data bonus on all data bundles purchased for another 3 months after the first 3 months of 100% data bonus.
Initially, once you upgrade your SIM, you only get free 4GB data, but now, it has been increased to a whopping 10GB free data instantly.
