MTN pulse is without doubt one of the best tariff plans on MTN Nigeria… and was featured in our list of the latest MTN tariff plans. However, the information provided on that list post was just the highlights of the main benefits of Pulse. Consequently, we decided to share this guide to help you learn more about the Pulse tariff plan including information on the migration code, benefits, bonuses and call rates.
MTN has millions of subscribers in Nigeria. Although the network is present in other countries, it has thrived more on the Nigerian soil. In other words, Nigeria is its biggest marketplace.
Needless to say, the NCC and the Nigerian populace expect a lot of goodies from the network; and it has been, as a matter of fact, living up to some of those expectations.
Not too many plans have a perfect balance on both calls and data. However, MTN pulse does a perfect job at that.
Whether you’re a lover of cheap calls or bonus data MTN pulse will meet your very need.
Before making further claims and hyping the tariff so much, I’ll list out all of the benefits associated with migrating to MTN pulse. The decision whether to switch or not from your current plan will be left for you to make.

MTN iPulse and Pulse Differences
Want to know the key differences between MTN iPulse and Pulse? If your answer is yes, then you need to read on.
A lot of people still find themselves confusing and misinterpreting the benefits of both tariff plans, which indeed are similar in the way they are pronounced but have several key differences.
iPulse was introduced to help students around campuses in Nigeria get the best value on recharges, iPulse to iPulse calls and a host of other benefits. In other words, iPulse was created for people or students living within Nigerian campuses. All those benefits cease to exist when you step out of campus areas.
However, iPulse doesn’t really exist anymore. What we have at the moment is just Pulse. Both tariffs were merged… and is no more just the students’ plans but a plan for everyone. 🙂
How to opt-out of MTN pulse
Whenever and wherever you decide you no longer want to be a subscriber to MTN pulse, you can easily opt-out by dialing the code of the tariff plan you wish to migrate to.
You will not be charged any fee for migrating to a new plan, provided your last migration was not made within the previous 30 days.
In my opinion, MTN pulse is one of the best tariff plans in Nigeria. If you doubt that, you can read our articles on Glo tariff plans and compare for yourself. By the way, I did not say the best ooo… I only said one of the best.
Along with the cheap 11k/sec call, my personal favorite on the Pulse tariff is the nightlife bundle. With the nightlife bundle I get 2GB for just ₦400 whenever I want to. I could get higher than just 2GB if I wanted. However, I decided to leave it at that.
One man’s food is another man’s poison, so they say. Notwithstanding, I’m sure the pulse tariff is the most popular on the network. BetaTalk maybe sits in second place.
