Hi beautycrush24, my apologies once again. As discussed on phone and via PM. Please be informed N5000 has been refunded to your line. In addition, kindly avail me of the IMEI number of the device to enable me assist further. Regards


Hello I am also going through the same issue, I got the MiFi this year January and the rate at which the data is been deducted is abnormal. FYI, I am using glo before and 10GIG do last for a month but I moved to new area and that was when I got the MiFi and 10GIG doesn't last for 2 weeks anymore and I'm not a heavy user. Please help me out asap.

it is YouTube consuming all that data .. You have been streaming YouTube videos.. YouTube are streamed at HD quality which consumes a lot of data.

you have to change the setting to 144 or 240p before watching.. I thought a genie was using my data too till I discovered that..

The rate at which these telecom companies exploit us is becoming really frustrating. And to think they'll keep doing it because we always decide to keep quiet is more annoying. So today I've decided not to keep quiet like I always do but to call them out instead. I'll be fulfilled if this message saves only 1 person from this scam.

I bought the MTN 4G LTE mifi on the 13th of this month for 20k and according to them, it came with 20GB (imaginary 20GB in my opinion). Network was bad so they weren't able to activate it till d next day which is 14th. I started using it and got a message on the 21st that my data had been exhausted. You can imagine my shock. 20GB in 1 week? What was I browsing. Prior to this time, I was using at most 7GB monthly. I subscribe regularly cos I work online so I can accurately estimate how much data I consume monthly.

Anyways, I overlooked it since it was 'free' data and decided to subscribe the 10GB data plan which costs 5k. I did that on the 22nd of this month and was given 25k bonus airtime that can be used to browse. Imagine my shock when I got notified yesterday, march 27th, that both 10GB and 25k have been exhausted. HUH!!! In 5 days? Just put a gun to my head already.

So these thieves are trying to say in 13days, I used up 30GB and 25k just for browsing WITHOUT DOWNLOADING!!! I decided to call customer care. The first mumu I spoke to was giving me wrong date so I knew he didn't know his job well. I decided to call again hoping someone else will pick. A lady picked and after my explanation, she told me from what she can see, I've been browsing heavily. Just imagine. Like I don't know what heavy browsing means? When I tried to argue her explanation, she hung up on me. So much for customer service. She's lucky I didn't get her name. I wonder if they really screen these people before employing them.

I am writing this to warn those who plan to buy the MTN 4G LTE mifi to think twice before taking that step. I have lost 25k to these rich thieves which might be nothing to some of you but it's my sweat and I decided to rant about it. Enough of all this scam already. Thanks for reading.

Look for their tweet handle and complain. They will follow u back and DM u. And then try to sort out ur problem. I dont call their customer care again

There are also some sites with embedded videos like dailymail,Goal.com etc. Once you open those sites with 4G,those videos will try to load.

Whew!!! I tire for all this una assumption o. They have checked and they're already working on refunding me and the guy has investigated and realized I didn't use up all that data hence the refund.

LOL.I followed it and I understand that you didn't use up to 30GB, but 7.5GB they're refunding for you. I saw it, It's just a tip I use to minimize my data further.
Take care

This windows data counter is %100 inaccurate .
Last month I used 379Gb. But the windows data counter shows only 69Gb.
The only way to know your true usage.
Is by Going to
192.168.8.1 in your web browser while connected to your wifim
Click on Status . If it asks for login
Type admin as the user name and admin as password.
Your true data usage will be revealed.
I'm very sure you're the one using this data mistakingly or some apps use it up.
Because MTN is not known for X2 data deduction .
