How To Borrow Megabyte On Mtn New Plan (Xtrabyte)

MTN XtraByte is a service that allows eligible customers borrow data on credit when they run out of data while browsing and pay back on their next recharge.

I see this as a welcome idea knowing that similar service was launched by MTN some years but was only for airtime (call cards) so giving its subscribers the option to borrow data is a good innovation because many people now prefer to have data on their Smartphones than having call airtime. Am one of those that prefer data to airtime. I don't know about you. 

Interesting thing about this offer is that you can borrow airtime through MTN XtraTime, also borrow "data through XtraByte" as long as you are eligible for the services. So both voice and data options are there for you. 

To be eligible to borrow megabyte (Data) with MTN XtraByte, you must fulfil these criteria below
=> Your SIM must be registered
=> Your number must have been active on the network for at least 3 months
=> Your main account balance must be between#0 and #12
