You should know that MTN Uganda offers monthly bundles that are post-paid. Customers who hope to access internet bundles prior to making their payment, can activate any bundle using their prepaid airtime account or Mobile Money account. Each KB is priced at about UGX 0.03.
MTN also offers its customers an opportunity to share bundles. When one is sharing a bundle with another person, but they have another active data bundle, the Internet share bundle will be used first before the other internet bundles. When you happen to be a beneficiary of another person’s Internet bundle, you cannot be added as a beneficiary elsewhere, neither can you add another person to the account you are using. So, you can only be a beneficiary of one shared bundle at a time.
If you are interested in sharing a data bundle on Mtn, the code you dial is 15070#. More information can be accessed about the Internet share service there.
Below are the internet share bundles, their prices, and codes;
|SHARE BUNDLE||VALIDITY OF THE BUNDLE||PRICE OF THE BUNDLE (UGX)||CODE (TO BUY, DIAL…)|
