This is a nice development and welcome idea from the Telecommunication Giant. MTN is the first to introduce this service. MTN few years back introduce the ability for customers to borrow airtime and they now extended it to data, giving its subscribers the option to borrow data is a good innovation because many people now prefer to have data on their Smartphones than having call airtime. Am one of those that prefer data to airtime. I don’t know about you.
Interesting thing about this offer is that you can borrow airtime through MTN XtraTime, also borrow “data through XtraByte” as long as you are eligible for the services. So both voice and data options are there for you.

⚫Your main account balance must be between #0 and #12
