How many times in a Month do you Subscribe for Data?

Let me guess, some of you actually got up to 4 terabytes of data from the the few hours glitches that happened yesterday on MTN server, what did you actually use it for…downloads, movies or just normal streaming’s?


The hash tag #DataExtortion has been trending online ever since the glitches on Mtn server occurred, and subscribers are lamenting bitterly on how many times they subscribe to monthly data plans in a month.

Some subscribe 7 times for a N1000 monthly data plans, some 12 times, while some others have up to 4 sims, use normal sim for monthly data plans, and the others for a night plan for download purposes.


Some subscribers have even lost count of how many times they make data subscriptions in a month. This is why we give you guidelines on how to drastically reduce data consumption on any of your social media handles. 

From my ends, I use minimum 10GB daily while utilizing the 1GB for N200 plan. I know MTN data zaps, both monthly, weekly or daily.Atimes you just wake up in the morning only to discover that your data has been exhausted without doing anything… maybe this is what is refers to as #DataExtortion.


Some of you sub N500 daily for N1GB data plan, meaning by month end, you must have subscribed 30 times for 30GB worth of data at the rate of N15000. So if you’ve been consistent with the N500 daily subscriptions for the past 6 months, you’ll have spent roughly N90,000 on data.

We would like to ask you how many times do you normally subscribe for monthly data plans within a month, and on which network?
#DataExtortion must stop

  1. So far MTN has been the only stable network in my area and it zaps very fast hence i end up subscribing 4times on the least

  2. Well, For Me I Cannot Re-collect How Much I Do Spent On Data Monthly But All I Know Is That Starting From This Year GLO Has Been Eating My Money Alot Ranging From Data To Voice Call Daily Follow By MTN, AIRTEL & Then 9MOBILE. BUT IN RESENT YEARS IT WAS MTN & AIRTEL ALONE.

  3. I use the 9mobile N200 for 1gb data plan, so on an average I subscribe at least 10 times in a month cos the data last for only 3 days

  4. I do sub for Airtel 500 twice every week
    That’s for the double data
    But than God am now eligible for MTN welcome back plan

  5. With airtel I subscribed 1k and 3 times in a week. But Currently using mtn 1gig for 200, and am
    subscribing almost every day.

    • 20k for 60GB 2 months for their Mifi plan. U get 60GB for 20k when u buy their Mifi router. The 20k is for buying the Mifi device. So I buy the device every month. I’m a music producer n YouTube blogger so I use lots of date. 60GB lasts me for like a month or 3 weeks min.
