Oky I called MTN to try my luck, however you can't activate Datashare on the Made for Home Fixed LTE data packages.
Maybe if you have the 1TB business deal it is possible, but not for this specific package.
Yeah. And seems there is also some kind of 500GB + 500GB Black Friday sneaky hidden deal out there as well. So definitely makes it confusing.Ah okay, so there are different versions of this deal, just to make life interesting.

Also another update, the ZTE router which you have to take with the deal is giving me problems. Drops my internet about every 2 hours and only restarting the router fixes the problem.
I've moved the sim over to my Huawei B525 now, added the right APN, and so far so good.
In simple terms, you can DataShare the base 500GB portion on the Business Pro 500GB + 500GB Promo package @ R999pmI'm really confused now with this 1Tb data deal. Some say you can share data and some say you cannot. I contacted MTN on Facebook messenger and the consultant that replied said
"Hi , yes you can link the number that you want to share data with. You can link both contract and prepaid. The number that you are sharing with will have unlimited access to your data. ~NK"
I asked about the 1Tb deal
But some cannot afford R999 a month, this is why the R499 deal is so enticing to all the peepsIn simple terms, you can DataShare the base 500GB portion on the Business Pro 500GB + 500GB Promo package @ R999pm
1TB Home Deal you cannot DataShare and it’s Fixed LTE only.
Now there’s a Black Friday retentions deal 500GB day + 500GB night express after 12 which is R499pm x 36 months, no clue if DataShare applies to any portion there.
To avoid all confusion I took the business deal at R999pm, it’s straight forward and the entire 1TB is anytime data with the only exception being you can only share 500GB. All the other irritations are gone i.e Can be used in any device be it a phone or ANY router, not fixed to a location etc etc
According to quite a few guys it’s 5G compatible as well whenever it goes live in your area. That doesn’t really bother me since I’m running it since October and I only see 5G being activated in my area in the final year of this deal so not really a biggy for me.
