On MTN, you might have come across the Double Data Offer, which multiplies your data by 100%. For instance, if you subscribe to a 5GB monthly plan, you will receive free 5GB accumulating it to a 10GB monthly plan and it doesn’t zap unusually.

It is supposed to be available to all MTN SIM card but the Mobile telecom is better-off making it ineligible for the most sim but if your SIM is not eligible don’t worry, there is a solution. Follow the below procedure;

Send PROMO via SMS to 131, A message like this “thank you for your request for device bundle at naira 1/day” it will arrive, don’t worry, Reply with 1 and then choose any MTN data plan below and subscribe.

Are interested, then you can activate it by Texting “110” to 131 but on the other hand, you can go ahead and check other MTN Data Bundle Plan for yourself.

Airtel Double Data

I am still rocking this on my two Airtel Sim including my siblings too but however, it is not eligible on all Airtel Sim cards. Few of my friends aren’t eligible and unlike MTN, there is no tweak to make them eligible.

You can get a new sim card to check it out but hoping on whether it will work is 50/50. The Airtel Double Data bonus gives you back 100% of your subscribe data as bonus e.g subscribe to 5GB on Airtel, you will received extra 5GB making it 10GB of data for a month.

You can get new Airtel sim card to check for yourself. To test if your sim is eligible then you can dial *144#. You will receive a message like;
“Enjoy Airtel 100% double Data
3GB for N1000
10GB for N2500”
But most times, it doesn’t show that, so you might be forced to test it out for yourself by subscribing to a lower data plan to check if the SIM is eligible for the double data.

You all aware that Glo Nigeria has finally reduced its data but the prices remain normal. Before you can use N500 to get 2GB, 1,000 can get you 3.2GB, 2,000 for 7.5GB but right now, everything has changed.

  1. Hi, this MTN awoof (double) data offer, does it have an expiring period, I mean does it have a duration?
    For example, with airtel sim, the duration in which one is eligible for double data offer is 3months, when the duration is over you fall back to the normal data plan.

  4. Good morning I was actually you will rate ntel as number one as I have been using it since 2016 I actually started with 10k per month with unlimited data and I mean unlimited data not like the trash Airtel is selling. I use up to 400GB per month since times 150Gb depending on what I stream every month I don’t even use my DStv decoder anymore since 2016 since I can watch virtually all programs online without buffering though the price is not 17.5k for unlimited data now for 30 days it’s the best so far until I see any other network that can beat that, they are the best.

  10. The NCC are responsible for high cost of data by not allowing Telecom Operators to compete. This they did by restricting Glo, and hence making them come up with the Oga SIM idea instead.
    The NCC are not even in the interest of common Nigerians, all they know is to fine, making the Operators hike their data prices in order to get back their money from the subscribers.

  12. This is a nice post,actually I have been enjoying some of this data bundle lately switching from sim to sim but I think the NCC should do something about the high cost of data by the network providers,this is unbecoming of them
