One thing that still sets mtn Nigeria apart from the pack is coverage and reliability. It is no gainsaying that when mtn Nigeria erss, it affects the majority and when they are doing well, majority also feel the positive impact. As much as glo offers slightly cheaper services overall, glo reliability and network coverage has become a cog in the wheels of their progress. That notwithstanding, glo has been the only network which has consistently forces mtn Nigeria to make a downward review of their prices and offer better services. Airtel and etisalat always come behind.
In case you don’t know, MTN Nigeria has rolled out new but improved data bundles and with downward adjustment in prices. Hitherto, we used to buy 260mb mtn plan for #1,000 now it is 1.5gb for same #1,000(same as glo package) wow!! this is more than #00% increment and it stands as joint cheapest in the country. Another interesting development from mtn is that all night / weekend plans have been scrapped. In its place is a huge 3.5gb all day all noght bundle for just #2000. (remember,night [plan used to go for #2,500 for 4.5gb with its attended inconvenience)

WHAT IS THE IMPLICATIONS OF THIS NEW OVERHAUL OF MTN DATA PLANS?
We have both negative and positive consequences. Infact to me, i will say we have only positive impact from this price regime which includes:
- More data to browse the web, download or stream iptv channels for the same old price
- The fear that iptv is a no go area has waned
- Mtn bandwidth mitering is second to none in this country. I mean the do not deduct you data anyhow. you are charged based on the amount of data transferred.
- The only constraint which is for some section is that SME data business has suffered. Sme data used to be the cheapest way of buying mtn data for around #1200 for 1gb. This kind of busines can not longer thrive unless mtn offers remedies for sme data retailers.
