Despite the cost of data coming down in recent months, with more folks being asked to work from home the volume of data needed has sunk in for many South Africans.

This includes how often folks are needing to recharge given that one day they might have more emails to respond to or the teacher goes on for just a little bit longer than expected.

In a bid to help its customers, MTN has announced pricing for its EverydayGigs offer, which gives you data for a 24-hour period.

“Our aim with EverydayGigs is to keep our customers connected at all times. Customers won’t need to worry if they deplete all their data in one day as they will just get more the next day – giving all our customers a sense of security with a guarantee that they will be connected again tomorrow without the worry of finding money to purchase another bundle,” says head of corporate affairs at MTN South Africa, Jacqui O’Sullivan.

MTN customers can dial *136*2# to access these deals or through the MyMTNOffers menu accessed by dialling *142# from a handset with an MTN SIM.

Customers can also pay up front for data to be provisioned to them throughout the week. This is a rather good idea if you’re worried about ploughing through 14GB in one day.

The various bundles on the EverdayGigs offer are outlined below.
