MTN Uganda announces return of the Gaga Wednesday data bundle

In August 2019, MTN silently brought back the much-loved midweek data plan known as Gaga Wednesday.

The MTN Gaga journey begun three years ago, having been first introduced in 2017. The bundle previously spanned a validity of 24 hours when subscribed and because users had discovered a hack to extend the subscribed offers to any duration, this forced the telecom to revise the plan and package before calling an end to it in May 2019. Around this time, the MTN Dabolo offer was introduced, and this saw subscribers a 100% bonus on daily and weekly data bundles, for example if you loaded 1Gb, you’d receive 2Gb instead. The offer lasted 3 good months till it had to give way for the reinvention of the MTN Gaga bundle in August last year, and this time round, the Gaga data bundle once subscribed for would be valid for a whole four days (Wednesday till Saturday 10am).

Soon as the pandemic befell us, MTN introduced MTN Gaga Time, a new data bundle that almost worked like ‘Night Shift” because users were availed options to load gigabytes worth of bundles to take them from midnight till 10am the next day. Another package of internet that was introduced still this year was the ‘Work from Home’ bundle, which was to facilitate MTN subscribers who were telecommuting (working remotely from home), and was valid between hours 9am to 5pm, just like would be at a normal work day. This meant that the fate of the Gaga bundle had been decided, and we would see the data plan be put to a halt by the telecommunications giant in April, 2020.
