MTN BetaTalk is one if MTN’s most lucrative prepaid Tariff Plan that rewards you with 3 times the value of your recharge i.e 200% bonus airtime on every recharge from N100 and above. If you recharge N100, you get N300. This bonus is valid both on normal recharge and E transactions. In this brief and direct review we would be taking a quick and direct look at this MTN Voice Plan.


Asides from the 200% bonus, you also get 10MB worth of data to browse the internet for a week, when you load N100 and above.


How MTN Better Talk Works:

With MTN Better Talk, when you load a recharge card of N100 and above, you get an additional 200% bonus. Your phone calls, SMS, including your PAYG browsing would be charged from your 200% bonus account. It is after you must have exhausted your bonus account or after it must have expired that you’ll be charged on your main account balance.


You cannot use your Bonus account to subscribe for data or any other subscription. Any subscription you wish to do would be charged from your main account, leaving your bonus account for you to make calls, SMS or for PAYG browsing.

If you recharge your account with less than N100, you will not receive the 200% recharge bonus.

If you recharge your line multiple times within a day, week or month, you’ll be given your 200% bonus multiple times as you recharge your line. There are no limits as to how many times you can receive your bonus recharge.


What The Charges Are Per Call Rates

MTN to MTN calls – 40k/s

MTN to other networks – 40k/s

This means your phone calls are charged at N24/min. This might seem expensive but when you consider that you get 200% bonus on every recharge, you’ll realize that it worths it.


SMS Rates:

MTN to MTN: N4 per SMS

MTN to Other Networks: N4 per SMS
