MTN Nigeria tariff and call plans

MTN offers great ways to cost costs and save money with their tariff plans. In this article, we will take a look at all the present offerings from MTN with regards to their tariff and call plans.

As at the time of writing this article, some of the present tariff plans offered by MTN are:

  • Xtravalue
  • AWUF4U
  • Pulse
  • Startpack
  • BetaTalk
  • Welcome Back Offer

Let us take a look at each of these call plans.


This plan is for customers that want more airtime and less data, or more data and less airtime.

With this in mind, the plan is in two categories

  1.  XtraTalk Bundles – Offers more airtime for Voice calls than the Data volume
  2. XtraData Bundles – Offers more volume of Data than airtime for voice calls

A special reason why I like this plan is that you can buy other bundles while on one, i.e, if you are on N300 XtraTalk bundle, you can still buy the N15,000 bundle at the same time.

How can you migrate to this plan?

Once you subscribe to any of the bundles above, you have automatically migrated to the XtraValue plan.

  • To subscribe to a bundle plan, dial *131*2# and select the preferred bundle type.
  • You will be able to purchase multiple bundles while on the plan.
