In my personal journey with MTN Lumos, I’ve seen firsthand how these plans have eased the daily lives of many. Each plan comes with its own set of benefits, and customers can select one based on their energy consumption patterns and financial preferences.
The upfront activation fee may seem steep for some, but when distributed over the long term, it’s a worthwhile investment considering the daily fee and the substantial savings on fuel for generators.
Whether it’s the Lumos Eco plan offering a basic setup sufficient for small-scale needs, or the Lumos Business plan catering to more robust energy demands, MTN Lumos has sculpted its offerings to champion sustainability and convenience.
You can easily activate any of these plans through a simple SMS, and with MTN’s widespread network coverage, support is always within reach.
The versatility of MTN Lumos subscription plans cannot be overstated. With the rise in energy costs and the unpredictability of power supply, these solar solutions present not just an alternative, but a new standard in electricity consumption for Nigeria.
It’s an empowering step forward for households and businesses alike, and I take pride in being part of this narrative, one where the power to change lives shines as brightly as the Nigerian sun.
To fully own the MTN Lumos solar system, you’re required to complete payment over a span of 1800 days, which is approximately 5 years. Alternatively, you have the option to purchase the system outright and forgo the monthly subscription fees.
The exact cost for outright purchase may have changed since I last checked, so I would recommend reaching out directly to MTN for the most recent pricing. You can contact MTN customer service by dialing 180 or get in touch with Lumos directly at 08001234567, which is available around the clock, or 08004440444 from 8 am to 8.30 pm GMT+1 for further assistance.
Reflecting on my experience since I began using the MTN Lumos solar system in 2017, I initially opted for a quarterly plan and subsequently transitioned to a monthly top-up system.
Back then, the monthly fee was N4,500, but it has since risen to N7,300—a significant increase of N2,800. Inflation has affected prices across the board, so it’s somewhat understandable that MTN might adjust subscription fees for new users to align with current market conditions.
However, it feels unjust for long-standing customers who have been with the service for over three years to bear the brunt of such a price hike. For current MTN Lumos users seeking the latest subscription rates, you can text “Price” to 317 to receive an up-to-date price list.
