  1. I'm using 4g already but it's not from mtn nor Etisalat.. It's from smile. And it's pretty fast . Since they're giving away free GB I had to register to their network

  2. Contact me to unlock all your 4g modems and routers ,Spectranet,smile,interc,swift,zte,Huawei..07032705611.. All I.need to give you is the unlock code ..thanks

  3. Definitely Mtn must either be mad or stupid ,, so now they want to be like etisalat with their stingy data plans ,, i no do ,, hold your thing back sef ….

  4. Wow thanks Mr Shelaf. MTN has really tried. Ntel and Smile still limit theirs to some states while MTN made it available to all states nice one .

  5. But I visited mtn homepage and I confirmed that the normal subscription for 2g,3g, will works fine on 4g .that's what I Read visit here for More info mtnonline.com/4g/faq

  7. In this erra of mouthwatering data plan offer from Glo – MTN still don't want to upgrade. Ok i'm out for now, find me at samexycool.com

  8. shelaf plz confirm. on Mtn website it says you don't need another data plan, that the former plans work on 4g. are you sure of this info?

  9. I saw glo 4g plans on their hsi port for the same price as their 3g counterparts but I'm not sure if the service has launched

  10. So because of 4g lte that's why MTN want to siphon our pockets. Every other network is way cheaper for the same service. MTN is a big thief.

  11. This article is misleading. MTN 4g is not available in all states. I'm serving in ekiti and I'm in the capital ADO and it's not there. Yes both my sim and phone is/are 4g capable.

  12. MTN is a Fucked Up Network, #Belive Me!!! They just Lauched this, and the rate is High like this?? Na waoooo!!! These rates are for Buisness Centers, especially Cyber Cafe. Soo Enjoy, am not intrested.
    "I use the Smart fone network." #wink

  13. The 4G is indeed super fast in all aspects of browsing. But the regular data subscription still works perfectly, I don't think it's necessary to do the 4G data sub.

  14. With the rate presented above… I think the 4G service is best described as Exploitation..
    Period… And I will say a big NO to it

  15. why do i have to swap my sim bcos i want to enjoy 4G? what wil happen 2 my contacts and the Data boundle i already have in my sim?

  16. The above information is not valid if u have a 4G phone and sim just dial *444# to subscribe to any data of your choice daily /monthly /weekly

  17. MTN 4G Data Plans
    N100 for 30MB valid for 1day
    N200 for 100MB valid for 1day
    N500 for 750MB valid for 1week
