How both teachers and non-teachers can access NAGRAT MTN data bundle | 10GB/20GB @Ghc27/Ghc54
The NAGRAT MTN data bundle was launched for members of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT). However, there are no control measures to restrict patronage to only members of the association or to restrict usage to only staff of the Ghana Education Service (GES).
In April 2023, a hugely discounted internet data package was launched for members of NAGRAT. NAGRAT is the second largest teachers’ union in the country.
The data package is a special offer negotiated between the union and the biggest telecommunication company, MTN. The partnership offers 10GB of internet data to members at Ghc27. Also, a 20GB internet data package is offered at Ghc54.
With reference to the market price of the internet data provided by the mobile network companies, this offer could be considered the cheapest short-term offer.
How to access the NAGRAT MTN data bundle
Individuals were required to dial an USSD short code on their phone to access the offer. The short code is *227*2234#
After dialling the shortcode, a menu will appear for the member to select from any of the two offers available. That is either the 10GB offer or the 20GB offer.
The applicant will then be asked to input his or her phone number he or she wishes to receive the data on.
Later, a message for approval of the cost involved will be sent to the applicant. However, in the absence of the approval message over a reasonable time, the applicant can visit the pending transaction “approval” page on his or her mobile money wallet to approve the payment for the internet data bundle.
There is also a marketplace place store (link). The market place store is an online platform where members purchase the NAGRAT data bundle. The link only replaces the USSD code (*227*2234#). The respect of the process which involves payment for the data is the same as those processes involved after dialling the shortcode.
