However the data bonus will be based on the value of the recharge made. To be specific they will receive 50mb on all their recharges between N200 and N499 and 100mb on all their recharges N500 and above.
Needless to say that this offer is available to Betatalk and Trutalk tariff plan subscribers only.
It should be noted also that eligible customers (Betatalk and Trutalk customers will be given this data bonus on all their recharges irrespective of the recharge channel used. In other words whether via VTU, physical/logical or DYA.
This said, the validity period however remains the same. This being 2 days from the day the bonus is received.
With this new offer it can be said that MTN has struck another milestone in the mobile data landscape has it strives to position itself for better data delivery and customer experience.
This new offer is clearly an extension of its earlier drive to improve on the value of its data products. A strategy which saw it unleashing its new and improved data packages a few months ago and which strategy is seen as part of its ongoing bid to become more competitive in the data space, a field hitherto dominated by Globacom (Glo). With this new offer then, MTN Nigeria is poised to really give all comers a serious run for their money.
But let’s not hold our breath. The other major Telcos- Globacom, Etisalat, Airtel, are hardly going to take this lying down. Like it happened when MTN introduced its revamped data plans offer a few weeks ago, the other telecommunications companies are bound to respond in the coming days with their own improved data bonuses and offers.
