WANT to borrow Data bundles from MTN? Want to borrow data from MTN and pay back later? Then you have come to the right page and place. The MTN Xtrabyte is a plan which allows all MTN subscribers, to easily borrow data from MTN and pay back later.

The XtraByte from MTN Nigeria is the latest service introduced by the network, which gives all subscribers, the ability to easily borrow data and pay later. This is very similar to the MTN Xtratime, which allow you to borrow airtime and pay back later. Seeing the huge help and success from MTN XtraTime, the telecommunication giant has introduced the MTN XtraByte.


In our world today, where data is much more valuable than airtime, especially among vast majority of Nigerian youths, its not surprising that MTN has come out with this brilliant plan to help provide data to those in dire need of bundle to search/check the internet. Please take note that the MTN Xtrabyte is available only to eligible subscribers.
