The same way you can borrow airtime, you can also borrow data on MTN, Airtel, Glo and Etisalat Nigeria with their ussd code but you wouldn’t know when they need might arise and if you’re not prepared before then, you would be left stranded.
Here I want to provide the codes and steps to borrow data from all Nigerian telecom networks, the data borrowing service works just as the airtime loan service, but instead of airtime for voice calls, you would be given data to browse and download from the internet.
How To Borrow Data On Glo, MTN, Airtel, Etisalat
How To Borrow Data From Glo NG (Glo Borrow Me Data)
To borrow data from Glo Nigeria dial *321# on your glo line and select from the available options, the available options should be listed as below:
The glo data borrowing service is called “Glo Borrow Me Data” and the amount of data you can borrow depends on how long you’ve been using your line and the amount of airtime recharges you make.
How To Borrow Data From MTN Nigeria
To borrow data on MTN Nigeria dial *606#, this is also the code to borrow airtime on your line but you should select the Xtrabyte option rather than MTN Xtratime, you would be faced with options of data volumes you can borrow, make your choice and if you’re eligible the data value would be credited to your line.
The MTN Xtrabyte data options are as follows in terms of data allowance, price and validity:
* 10MB – N55 – 24hrs
* 30MB – N110 – 24hrs
* 100MB -N220 – 24hrs
* 200MB – N330 – 48hrs
* 750MB – N550 – 7days
How To Borrow Data From Airtel NG
Airtel is yet to provide subscribers with a data borrowing service even though their airtime loan service has been up and running for years now, however you can still browse the internet when your line is low on subscription by borrowing airtime and using it to browse directly or buy a data plan with it, see how to borrow data from airtel here.
You can also purchase a cheaper airtel night data plan, it would serve the same purpose as a normal data plan, though its downside remains that it can only be used at night.
How To Borrow Data From 9Mobile (EasyCredit)
Etisalat Easy Credit is a service that allows you borrow airtime from Etisalat and use it for calls, purchase data plans or send messages, just like Airtel, Etisalat hasn’t introduced its data borrowing service thereby you would have to borrow airtime on your and use it to subscribe to a data bundle.
Data you can borrow
Etisalat doesn’t have direct code to borrow data but you can borrow airtime credit from them and use it as data or subscribe to a data plan.
Pricing and Tariff
Available amounts for borrowing are: N50, N100, N200, N500 and N1000.
You’ll pay 15% of the borrowed amount as a service fee. For example, when you borrow N50 You’ll receive N42.50. dial *665*Amount# to borrow airtime and use the airtime to purchase data
You can now borrow data On Glo, MTN, Airtel, 9Mobile anytime you run out of data. Please don’t forget to share this post to your friends on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.
