Last week, the leading network provider in Nigeria, MTN had network issue that made its internet connection incredibly slow. A lot of its subscribers had to find solace in other mobile provider.
Due to inconveniences caused by the network issues, MTN have started rewarding their customers with free 500MB data. The good news too is that you don’t have to do anything special other than to insert your MTN SIM if it wasn’t in your device before now. Also if you’ve not gotten the SMS yet and your phone is on, just dial *131*4# to confirm your data balance because there’s high chance it’s already been credited.
However, if you are yet to see any 500MB in your balance, just wait patiently for it.
The 500MB giveaway from MTN is a compensation for the slow internet connectivity that their customers had to endure because of their network issues
