MTN SME POOR DATA PLANS

Surfshark 570x180

Due to the high cost of data plans in Nigeria, MTN Nigeria has SME data bundles that can be acquired by individuals. This bundle allows the user to share more than 1GB daily with friends. The duration of this data sharing is 30 days.

Small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs) are businesses that maintain revenues, assets or several employees below a certain threshold. SME data are targeted for small profit making for an individual subscriber. The landing cost can be shared among friends and partners to either maximise profit or to reduce the burden of the high cost of data purchase by a single person. You can buy, manage, and share data bundles on the MyMTN app on Android.

Advantages of MTN SME Data Plans and Bundles

  1. The only advantage of the MTN SME Data plan is that you can share more than 1GB daily.
  2. These plans are suitable for people who use little data in one month.
  3. Suitable for small salary earners and low-income earners in one month.

Disadvantages of MTN SME Data Plans and Bundles

  1. It is costly to maintain as a private individual unless the private business person registers as an affiliate with an established organisation.
  2. It has a very small profit margin. Very minimal.
  3. SME Data bundles finish quicker than other bundles. MTN Nigeria made the data to be frustrating for end users. This has made it impossible for the business person to make tangible profits. This is one of the wickedness of MTN Nigeria.
  4. Just as the point above, MTN SME bundles experience massive downtimes during which data sent or shared takes long times to deliver. This has caused lousy blood among customers and end users.
  5. Numbers 3 and 4 show the difficulties of doing business with MTN SME Data bundles in Nigeria. Most subscribers to these plans make heavy losses sometimes.
  6. To automate this service, one must maintain a functional website and bots that will automatically deliver this service when a demand has been created. This requires expertise and a functional team. This is another expense on the part of the business person.
  7. To be successful, the business person must partner as an affiliate with an already established business.
