MTN is among the most popular telecommunication service providers in Nigeria. The company provides its customers with a wide range of voice, message, and data services. Most of these services, including data, come in packages that a subscriber gets as a one-time purchase or through an auto-renewal subscription. The latter means that when a specified time passes, the package renews itself. While this is quite convenient for some people, it does not work for others. This makes it important to learn how to opt out of an MTN data plan.
