N-Power beneficiaries during the verification process selected an electronic device as a tool for learning and working.
Concise News reports that N-Power partnered MTN to distribute the device to beneficiaries.
This partnership means that the N-Power devices are distributed with N-Power MTN sim cards.
Although the N-Power MTN sim cards look like every other MTN sim card, there are quite a few differences between the MTN sim card you will buy along the road and the N-Power MTN sim card that comes with volunteers’ device.
The N-Power MTN sim card gives beneficiaries free internet for one year, hence, there are certain configurations that have been done on the sim card.
The free internet on the N-Power MTN sim card is capped at 750MB of data monthly.
