There are a couple of cheap and almost free internet bundle packages in Ghana. Usually these come as promotions from the various networks, but you may not even hear of them that much. For those of you who haven’t heard of such cool offers, today is your lucky day.
Today we’ll share with you some of these great internet bundles from Airtel, MTN and Vodafone
AIRTEL (Sika Kokoo).
Airtel has great deals when it comes to internet bundles. Their normal subscriptions give you double for any one you subscribe to. That is not bad at all. But the main one I want to highlight is their Airtel Sika Kokoo promo.
With this option you get 750MB of data (one day duration), with free calls to Airtel numbers and free Whatsapp. One particular thing I like about Airtel is their “Data Roll-Over”. This is essentially an option that extends the duration of your data bundle subscription, allowing you to top-up your data even before it expires. It also extends your expiration day when you top up your bundle. Cool right? You can read more about Data Roll Over on their site here.
The code for subscribing for this package is *477#
Price: 1 cedi per day
The trick to use is simple. First, subscribe for any of the internet bundle packages using *125#. Then after the subscription has been confirmed via sms, dial the *477# to subscribe for the Sika Kokoo bundle. This will add an additional 750MB to your current subscription. Now you’ll realise that your bundle increases and your expiration date is that of the original bundle you subscribed instead of the one day for the Sika Kokoo. Smart huh?
UPDATE: Airtel has placed restrictions on the promo. Now it’s only available in the Brong-Ahafo and Northern regions. But if you are not in any of these regions, no need to worry. When you get the error message, just keep subscribing for about 5 times. One of them will subscribe you. Just keep checking your airtime after every 5 tries. Also, the package now expires after one day. Keep watching this space for more updates.
MTN MashUp + (Unlimited Bundle)
We all know MTN is fast in Ghana. The download speed can reach up to 1MB/s.
The newest addition to the bundle list is the MTN MashUp. Simply dial *567# to subscribe to any of the packages. It comes with free calls, free whatsapp, free facebook and free twitter, depending on which one you subcribe for. I must say they are really cool, especially coming from MTN. See the photo below for the full package list.
Also, they have an unlimited data bundle subscription in their data bundle package. The “bad side” about this is that you can only use it at midnight (From 12am to 5am). I guess the nocturnal ones will love this. This is usually good for downloading large files. I use this when I need unlimited data for very large downloads, and it’s fast too. Dial *138# to access this option.
VODAFONE (Vodafone X)
Vodafone pride themselves as the network with the fastest broadband in Africa. Well, to some extent that is true. Personally I believe they do deliver one of the best speeds.
They have a nice package called Vodafone X. It’s quite simple and cool. You just subscribe by dialling *5888# using a normal Vodafone sim card. But they have special Vodafone X sim cards as well.
This package comes with free Calls (To Vodafone X), free Whatsapp, free Twitter, free Instagram, free Facebook depending on which one you choose. See the full list in the photo below.
Price: 1 cedi, 2 cedis, 5 cedis, 10 cedis, 20 cedis per subscription plan.
The Price List for this package has been updated as follows:
