Huge selection of phones

Unlimited 4G LTE data

Unlike most phone companies, MTN doesn’t restrict the amount of 4G LTE data you can use. This, of course, means you have to pay a little more, but it could be worth it if you spend a lot of time surfing the web. Many prepaid companies only allow their customers to use a certain amount of 4G LTE data before dramatically decreasing speeds until the start of the next month. Though MTN also has plans like this for customers who are moderate data users, they also take it a step further by offering a truly unlimited plan. In addition to unlimited 4G LTE data, you also receive plenty of options to lower your call rates.

The Bad

Pricey unlimited plans

Depending on your data usage, MTN unlimited plans can get pretty expensive. Some plans cost as much as 75,000 FCFA per month, which is a little on the high end for this industry. However, at the same time, this plan also includes unlimited 4G LTE data speeds, something that’s also very difficult to find with a prepaid phone provider and may help justify paying a little extra for your monthly unlimited plan. At the end of the day, MTN still has a number of other options, including some more affordable plans, that may be a better fit.

Internet

Most of the internet plan comes with a limited usage per 24 hours which is very bad news for high consumption users.
