Meaning of MTN Alway-On Data Plan and How Does it Work?
The MTN Always on Plan is a cheap affordable data bundle that lets you enjoy only a portion of your data subscription volume every day and night, thereby optimizing your data usage to meet the bundle’s expiry date.
These Always-On Data plans are categorized as Daily, weekly, and monthly respectively.
The daily and weekly plans allow you to enjoy both day and night data volume by splitting the data volume into portions for usage during the day or afternoon time, with the night part having a larger percentage. For example, MTN Alway-On daily 200MB:- 50MB day + 150MB night.
While the monthly Always On data plan allows you to get data credited to your data balance gradually until 30 days. That is, MTN 45GB always on plan gives you 1.5GB data every day for 30 days while the 15GB Always-On MTN plan is released to your account at 500MB every midnight.
The data plans are available to and can be subscribed to by all MTN customers in Nigeria irrespective of your tariff and package. It’s a similar plan to the Everyday-On plan for Airtel users.
Now let’s talk about the types of Always-On Data plans and how you can subscribe to them.

If I couldn’t finish the 1.5 gb I was given that day will they add the remaining data to the next one they will give me the second day??
yes. All unfinished daily data allocations are rolled over to the next day’s allocation.
Please, how do I stop 15G before the expiry date cos it’s restricting me and it’s slowing down my work. Have subscribed to another package but it’s not effective yet cos am still restricted to d 500mg daily.
Hello, Mojisola. To opt out of mtn 15gb monthly always on plan auto renewal text NO162 to 131 .
Ideally your other data package should start deplating automatically after the daily 500MB expires and it should not restrict you from any service. I have both the 15GB and 45GB Always-On active on my line and it works one after the other everyday. confirm you data balance by dialing *131*4# and try accessing internet again. if problem persist, contact MTN on 180 or their social media handle on Facebook or twitter.
Please does the 6000 for 45GB also work during the day? Or is it just 1.5GB at midnight?
Yes. The 6000 for 45GB works through out the day and night. But you are allocated to get only 1.5GB out of the 45GB every 24 hours for 30 days.
Are there monthly plans that are not allocated in daily, more like you get the allocation outright for the same 45G
Yes, there are monthly plans that give even above 45GB without daily limit. Like 50gb for N6000 Though it’s available for all SIMs.
You can check out all MTN monthly data plans by dialing *131*1#
Please if I don’t exhausted my 45GB always on plan data before the expiration date…can it be rolled over?and how?
Hello Hassan, just like any other MTN data bundle, your 45GB always on plan can be rolled over once it expires as long as you purchase the same 45GB MTN Always on Data Plan immediately after it expires or just at most 24 hours before it expires.
So pls which one will you advise I do because I do use data alot and am spending so much which is no longer funny for me
If you use data alot and you don’t want spend much, you can use Always-On plan. Or dial *121# for special offers for you.
please if I use my data finish within this 24hours of 1.5gb will I still have access to the internet
Hello, Halimat. Yes, you can still access the internet after you exhausted your 1.5GB always-on plan within 24 hours but, only with a different data plan or any other active data balance, not from your 45GB always-on plan until the next day.
Can unused 45gb always on data be used when I activate 15gb always on data plan.. That’s 15gb(500mb/day) + 45gb unused data
Hello, Ehis. Your expired, unused 45GB always-on data cannot roll over after activating the 15GB always-on data plan. This is because the two data plans are different monthly plans.
Hi,I subscribe to 45gb always on plan yesterday nite and I cannot access to the network and when I checked my account balance is telling me no data active.is that how it showed when u wanted to check ur account balance and moreso how can I cancel the plan now when is on or I cannot cancel it until it gets exhausted.please kindly explain to me better
Hello, Femmmy. If you can’t access the network after subscription it could be possible that your data activation was not successful or the network was bad at the moment. kindly ensured that you successfully activated the 45GB always-on-plan using the right code provided in this article. Also, make sure that you check your data balance using *131*4# or *323#.
Secondly, you cannot cancel an already activated 45GB always on Plan before its expiry date. you can only stop it from auto renewal. to do this, text “NO163” without quote as SMS to 131. the format is: NOcode to 131.
How can the rolled over data be used the next month, since I can’t use more than 1.5gb daily?
Will it keep rolling over without being able to access?
I subscribed to the 15gb plan and the transaction was unsuccessful but the money was deducted
How do I go about this
Hello, Johnson. If your money was deducted for unsuccessful activation of the 15GB MTN ALWAYS-ON PLAAN, the first thing to do is to check you data balance. to do this, dial *131*4# or *323#. If you did not see the Always-on plan data balance, contact MTN customer care on 180 by call or @mtnng on twitter to put up a complain.
How can you call something “always on” and then you give subscribers certain amount of data that if it’s exhausted in that day, you won’t be able to browse. How is that an “always on” stuff. Do not deceive yourself, no network provider would help you to gain more from them while they lose. They can only cheat you and you can always need them. That’s the strategy here. Bet me, many would prefer to opt out as fast as they opted in. For once, I won’t even try it.
I also didn’t know how it was and bought 15gb and it’s just giving me 500mb to use per day, when I’m used to finishing it in an hour. Change it from “always on” to something else please
Hello Rahima, you may consider subscribing to a bigger always-On of 45GB which gives 1.5GB daily.
Please, if I don’t finish the 1.5GB that was allocated for that day, will it rollover to the next day??
Yes it will roll over to the next day.
Please is there anyway you can up the amount of data you get daily since even if you don’t mind it finishing before the suppose 30 days
There’s no way to add up data more than the daily allocation. You can’t also get double data credits daily on the plan. Kindly note that the MTN Always On plan is designed that way. However, your unused data of everyday can be rolled over to the next day for usage.
Can I share the data, like transfer a certain amount of MB to someone?
Yes. you can share a certain amount of MB to another MTN number from your Alway On data plan.

Please is it possible to subscribe for the monthly always on plan twice, so as to receive double the data daily. Thank you
Well, I believe it should be possible. I have subscribed to both the 45GB and the 15GB Always On plan at the same time and it works. I received the daily data allowance for both plans respectively.
