With the internet thriving today, the value of data cannot be overemphasized as so many activities are being carried online ranging from educational, business, recreational, to information and communication avenues. It has come to the point that when you are not online, you have been shut out from the world entirely and what you basically need to stay online is ‘DATA’.
But what happens if for a reason or two, you find yourself in need of data with no possible way of purchasing it? Worry not! As various networks have provided a solution to this by allowing their customers borrow data bundles and pay on a later time. However, you must note that this comes with terms and conditions as you must have been active to be eligible to borrow. By active here means, you must have been recharging your line and should have used it for a duration of 3 months and above.
Below is how to borrow data from the various networks:
How to borrow data from MTN
For MTN, dial *606# and select extrabyte.
Options that you are eligible to borrow from will be given.
Then you choose the data bundle you want.
