For example: if you had R100 airtime and no data bundle, you would be charged, say, R1 per MB when accessing the internet on your phone. In other words, R100 would buy you 100MB. But if you were to spend your R100 on a data bundle, it could buy you about 500MB of data, because the “in-bundle” rate is lower that the outof-bundle rate.
If you’re on a contract and you exceed your data allocation, you will be charged for data at an “out-ofbundle rate”.
MTN advises customers to buy data bundles that suit their consumption patterns, and to buy them once they have reached their monthly allocation.
