In August, MTN introduced mPulse data to assist teens across Nigeria with their education and also prepare them for exams, the mPulse data was so great that thousands of subscribers (even non teens) benefited from it. Since MTN has strictly restricted the mPulse data plan to teens alone now, the company still wants its subscribers to be able to use popular social photography platform, of course, Instagram at a very cheap rate with the new MTN pulse InstaBinge bundle.
A lot of time I hear people (Nigerians) saying, Instagram consumes a large amount of Data and this is why a lot of people still prefer WhatsApp to any other social media. Although Instagram quietly launched a lite version in Google’s play store which would also help reduce data consumption but unfortunately, it’s not available to all country at the moment, the company started testing the lite version in Mexico and says it’ll reach other countries soon. However users can still download the Instagram lite from apkpure and other app website and use.
Enough talk about the Instagram app, let’s see what MTN pulse InstaBinge is all about.

MTN Pulse InstaBinge Data Validity
MTN InstaBinge bundle plan is valid for just 24 hours. 😔
The InstaBinge idea is great but the 24hours validity seems to be the only downside to it. N200 everyday for a month is definitely a lot of money. One can simply buy a normal monthly data bundle instead.
