MTN, in the telecommunication business, is currently what’s trending. Thanks to it’s new released data plans since the beginning of the month of May.

MTN so far, since the beginning of this month being May 2016, has released about 4 data packages referred to as MTN Surprise (Apparently, they are surprises even-though we saw it coming).

First was a 3.7GB and 1.3GB data plan for N2000 and N1000 respectively. Second and third were the N5000 data bundles. Fourth now would be N2000 bundle said to be offering 5gb data and N2560 airtime to call all network.

How To Subscribe?

As clearly stated in the image above, to subscribe to this plan, simply SMS D2000 to 131 and N2000 will be deducted.

Although I am yet to try out this plan, I am guessing the plan will only be available to some selected users. Maybe only to those who received the message. My reason is because, MTN, few days back, just launched a data plan offering 3.75GB for N2000 and now, another 5GB data plan and additional N2560 airtime for same N2000 cost? Who else is actually smelling something?

Thankfully, I didn’t specifically get this message even though I’ve been receiving others. Hence, I’d get it a shot and revert back to you on this blog to let you know the outcome.


It has been confirmed that the data given is actually 2GB and not 5GB as stated by MTN. More updates will be coming soon.
