In this guide, you will find out everything you need to know about how to migrate to MTN Beta Talk. Irrespective of your current tariff plan, you can seamlessly migrate to MTN BetaTalk if you follow the steps outlined in this post.

Now let’s get started.

What is MTN BetaTalk all about?

Primarily, MTN BetaTalk gives airtime and data bonus on every recharge. This plan gives you a bonus worth three times the value of every recharge you make. 

In other words, irrespective of the amount, every airtime you load qualifies you for a bonus of 300% of the amount you recharged. 

For example, if you recharge N100, they will give you a bonus of 300% which is N300. In total, what you have is N400; N100 on your main account and N300 in your bonus account. 

That’s not all. Whenever you recharge your line under MTN BetaTalk, this network provider will give you a Data bonus alongside the airtime bonus. 

Specifically, if you recharge less than N200, your data bonus is 200% of the amount recharged. For instance, if you load airtime of N50 on your line, the data bonus is N100. That is, your browsing expenses will be deducted from the N100 data bonus.
