About the MTN Unlimited Data Plan
MTN has been constantly improving its unlimited data plans for customers in Nigeria. Before now, MTN delivered its unlimited data through the WiMAX network alone before it rolled out the LTE network in other parts of Nigeria. The WiMAX network was only available in a few areas in the country hence the unlimited plan was not widely used or advertised.
Later on, the MTN Hynetflex was introduced. The MTN Hynetflex plan gives access to MTN unlimited on the 3G and 4G network. So, if you are in an area with good MTN 3G OR 4G coverage, you will enjoy the speed of the Hynetflex device.
The MTN Hynet device comes with a Hynet flex Sim card. This sim card cannot be bought separately. Although any MTN sim card can work with the Hynetflex device, the MTN unlimited data plan is only available on the Sim card that came with the device.
MTN Unlimited Data Plan Pricing
If you have an MTN Hynet flex device and sim card, you can purchase any of the MTN unlimited data plan listed below;
|Data||Validity||Price||Fair Usage Policy|
|Unlimited||7 days||5,000 Naira||30GB|
|Unlimited||30 days||20,000 Naira||130GB|
|Unlimited||30 days||30,000 Naira||210GB|
|Unlimited||30 days||60,000 Naira||550GB|
What Does Fair Usage Policy (FUP) Mean?
FUP stands for Fair usage policy. It is a policy used worldwide by telecom operators to limit the data speed of heavy users. This is done to prevent overuse or abuse of service by a few users, which could lead to an interruption in service for other users.
Once you have exhausted the Fair usage policy for the MTN unlimited data plan, you will still be able to browse but at a reduced speed of 512 kilobytes per second. If you live in an area with a good 4G or 3G network, you may not notice the drop in speed except when you are downloading or have many users connected to the HynetFlex Device.
