Whether you are an occasional, regular or heavy user, MTN has a data plan that suits your lifestyle.

Data Rollover: Now you can rollover your unused internet data to the next month subscription. All you have to do is ensure that you auto-renew your data subscription before it expires and your unused data is automatically moved to the next month.

Data Gifting can also be used to send data to your other smartphones, modems and iPad.
