MTN Fastlink / F@stlink is the official MTN data dongle (USB modem) which allows subscribers to browse on a computer via the MTN network. The f@stlink USB modem uses a 3G network just like most data dongles and records your data usage (uploads and downloads) on a graph-like display.

The MTN fastlink is sold for N4,999 and can be purchased from MTN Connect centres or MTN offices near you. The modem originally works with only MTN SIM cards, but if you know how to unlock USB modems, then good luck.

How To Setup the MTN Fastlink Software To Start Browsing

1. First, you need to purchase the modem (of course). See a picture of it below.

2. Next, you need to register the SIM you intend to use with the modem.

3. MTN F@stlink modems come with free 12 months internet data (free 100MB for the first month, and 160% bonus for subscriptions within the next 11 months), so you have to take advantage of that. Send FASTLINK to 131 with the SIM you intend to use with the modem to activate the free data.

4. You do not have to download any software for fastlink. The MTN Fastlink client will be installed automatically once the USB modem is plugged into your computer.

5. If you have received the free data, you can connect and start browsing right away, if on the other hand you need to subscribe for a fastlink data bundle, see the codes for subscription below:
