MTN InstaBinge is one of the best packages from MTN Nigeria to all her subscribers. The MTN instaBinge focus ONLY on the biggest social Media platform of the moment, Instagram.
Instagram is officially among the biggest social media platform in Nigeria and major countries in the world. Like Whatsapp, this social media platform is owned by Facebook.
If you are an Instagram addict like me, you’ll know that Instagram consumes data than any other Social Media platform. Instagram is filled with Pictures, amazing photos which comes in high resolution, Numerous and countless videos, so it’s fun.
But same time it’s fun, it’s also consuming data at a very high rate. Thanks to MTN, there is a new package to solve this problem. With the introduction of MTN instaBinge bundles, you can now surf Instagram cheaply.

InstaBinge Validity Period
This is the biggest hindrance being faced by subscribers, as the MTN InstaBinge is valid for only 24 hours. Meaning that if you purchase any of these Instagram plans by 6 AM, it automatically expires 10 AM tomorrow.
I don’t know why this bundle was introduced the first place, I don’t see myself consuming 1GB of contents on Instagram in less than 24 hours.
Another problem is that If you were unable to finish the data you purchased, they will be cleared upon expiry and there is no data rollover of this package.
