Remember two days ago MTN had service challenges due to the damage of undersea cables which affected data services in many states of the Nation. This happened around 11 pm on 17th January 2020 which was later resolved on 18th January.
Well, for those that got affected by this, MTN decided to give out free data to them. The free data comes with no conditions as you can use it to browse, download and stream like every other internet bundle.
There is no specific data volume. A friend of mine received 500MB while another 4GB. We may say it’s all based on luck. You are supposed to be notified as regards to the MTN compensation data but if you didn’t get notified, worry not; I will show you how you can check the data balance.
There is no need for imel tweaking, use of VPN apps to make this work. Interestingly, you can use it on any internet-enabled device, be it Android, iOS, Mifi, Windows.

How to get MTN free data (Compensation)
Honestly, there is no method for activation but you can only check if you are given. In other words, the data is allocated to you but could be as hidden data. Although not every customer got the free data; well, that shouldn’t stop you from checking, you may be a lucky customer and Cruz into the week without spending on data.
How to Check
If you didn’t get notified about the data bonus, dial *131*4# to check your data balance. You may be given 500MB, 1GB, 4GB. Make sure it’s data bonus column you checkout for, not your main data balance (That is if you have data)
Funny enough, even with the little issue MTN had, they were still miles better than some other networks. At the moment MTN is arguably the best; with their quality service and urge to even improve and make sure bugs are fixed once discovered.
MTN thanks you for your patience throughout this period.
Did you receive the free data, how many Megabytes or GBs were you give? Use the comment box to brag; it’s all yours.
