The latest social media trend that I simply do not understand is TikTok.

“Ok boomer” comments aside, I recognise it’s hugely popular and so does MTN.

The mobile network operator has today announced the launch of data bundles specifically for TikTok.

“We have heard our customers and hope that the launch of these bundles will enable them to make the most of what is arguably the fastest growing social platform amongst the youth,” said corporate affairs executive at MTN South Africa, Jacqui O’Sullivan.

“We are committed to providing products and solutions that resonate with our customers, and the introduction of our TikTok bundles is another such offering,” O’Sullivan added.

To purchase a TikTok bundle simply dial *136*2# from your phone with an MTN SIM.

There are three bundles to chose from and you can view those below.

Bundle Size Validity Period Pricing
100MB Daily R5
500MB Weekly R20
1GB Monthly R50

 

That daily bundle is rather good though if you consume more than a gigabyte of TikTok each day then you’ll end up spending R50 anyway.

MTN’s TikTok bundles are available right now.
