MTN GH Data Bundles And How To Buy Them

Internet is now everywhere; from our bedrooms to our offices, we have internet-connected devices which assist us in our work, entertain us, and also provide needed information.

Remember you cannot connect to this global network with an internet service provider (ISP) which MTN happens to be one of the major internet service providers in Ghana.

Internet Service Providers like MTN also charges for their services in order to give you access to the internet. They convert your money or credit to a data bundle which shows the amount of data you accessed from and send to the internet.

This article will explain all the MTN Data Packages and this will help you make the right decision when buying it.

The shortcode for MTN GH Data Bundle in Ghana is *138#. You can also buy from the MyMTN App or from your MoMo account.

The Standard MTN GH Data Bundles

This is a type of data package that does not expire and can be used to access all aspects of the internet. This means, when you buy a package from this category, till the given amount of data is finished, MTN won’t wipe out the data after a week or so, your remaining data will continue to remain in your account anytime and can be used to access the internet.

I suggest this data bundle to people who doesn’t the use internet frequently for streaming downloading but rather reading news and emails and other small activities.

Below are the options that you can find under the standard bundle.

What is MTN Flexi bundle?

MTN Flexi bundle offer enables you to select your own amount from GHC 0.03 to GHC 399.00. So, this offer is for anyone that wants to name their price.

All other offers in the Standard package can be purchase using the Flexi bundle offer.

GHC0.5 (24.27MB)

As you can see, this offer gives you 24.27MB of data for GHC0.5. Unless you need a very few amounts of data for something quick. I do not recommend this offer although it doesn’t expire but it’ll take you to nowhere if you are a smartphone user.

GHC1 (48.54MB)

This bundle offer is just a duplicate of to the GHC0.5 offer. This is the same as buying the GHC0.5 package twice and it does not expire. This offer gives you 48.54MB of data. Personally, I don’t like this as well but you can do something with it you don’t use much data. You can read news and send some WhatsApp messages but it won’t last long.

GHC3(476.19MB)

This offer gives you 476.19MB of data and it doesn’t expire. This is my favorite bundle in this category because when you divide it by 3 you will get 158.73MB which is worth more than the GHC1.0 package. This is the package I buy more often and mind you MTN call it a special offer. I highly recommend you buy this because you can chat and watch your WhatsApp statuses, stream your YouTube videos and browse all kinds of websites you want to access.

GHC10 (980.39MB)

This is another non-expiry bundle that gives you 980.39MB for GHC10.00. This is a cool offer but I don’t buy it because buy GHC3.00 three times is more than this. However, if you want to buy this package follow the steps below.
