Have you had about the new MTN XtraByte that allows you to get extra data MB/GB when you run at of data and you still need to do one or two things online.

Many people don't know about this service because we only know more about borrowing Airtime credit but i want you to know you can as well request/borrow extra data MB from Mtn but first let us know more about MTN XtraByte services:

What is MTN Xtra Byte?

MTN XtraByte provides XtraTime service that allows eligible customers borrow data on credit just as they would borrow airtime when they run out of data while browsing and pay back on their next recharge.

Who can use XtraByte?

XtraByte is available to all registered prepaid customers who have been on the MTN Network for 3 months and above and must have a balance of between N0 –N12..

How do You know if You can use XtraByte?

A customer can check if they are eligible for the XtraByte service by dialing *606# then selecting 1 to confirm their eligibility.

You can choose Your preferred data bundle.

Eligible subscribers have the choice to choose from 5 data bundles on the XtraByte service:



The XtraByte service charges 15% on borrowed data and subscribers can payback XtraByte data borrowed, by recharging their account and the amount of data borrowed is first deducted from the recharged amount and the remaining balance, if any, will then be loaded in your main account. For example if a customer owing N115 XtraByte carries out a recharge of N400, the N115 owed to XtraByte is 1st deducted from theN400 recharge, then N285 will be loaded into the customer’s main account.
