ACTIVE MTN GHANA DATA BUNDLES AND THEIR PROS AND CONS
Everyone using a smartphone in 2020 needs to have data on their phone before accessing the internet unless you are on Wi-Fi. If you are an avid social media user or work heavily on your phone or laptop, you likely consume plenty of data. With the new law on data and airtime expiration, most MTN Ghana data bundles now go without expiry, meaning easy rollover and longer usage.
1. MTN BASIC PACKAGES
It exists for the average data user who wants data on his phone and does not have a targeted usage. Suppose you are an average user of data and just enjoy the occasional casual browsing on your phone. In that case, the MTN basic bundle is for you.
An advantage of the basic package is that it has an eclectic range of offers, i.e., it has small and large data packages. Simply put, there is a plan for everyone.

- 1 cedi for 2.79gb (*138#1-1-4-1-1-1)
- 3 cedis for 5.33gb (*138#1-1-4-2-1-1)
3. KOKROKOO BUNDLE
