MTN and Airtel are the leading telecommunication networks with the most users. Ugandans love these two networks for their cheap data bundles and who doesn’t love more for less. Along with the covid-19 pandemic came more cheap data offers such as home bundles. As the restrictions lowered, the data bundles gradually increased but were not too high.
How much data can one use in a day? These days’ data runs so fast, that Hussein Bolt can’t keep up. An average Ugandan uses about 300MBS to 1GB in a day. So with these data speeds, you should at least buy twice a day hence the need for cheaper bundles. So where can one find cheap data bundles?
MTN – Freedom Bundles
With MTN, the Freedom Bundles are the best. They have no validity date. To access them you have to have enabled a 4G sim card to enjoy. You can buy them with MTN MoMo on the MyMTN app or dial *150*6# and follow the prompts.
