The MTN HyNet Flex: New Trend?

Today, we are going to talk about this wonderful internet service that has gained popularity across the nation; MTN HyNet Flex. We would understand what this service is all about, how to subscribe, and change the passwords. Shall we begin?

What is MTN HyNet Flex?

MTN HyNet Flex is a high speed internet service that can be used for different businesses, ranging from low scale to medium or large scale businesses. It can also be used by households or just individuals. The reason it has an edge over normal USSD subscription plans, is it’s swift delivery of internet connection, and faster downloadable power. The plans however, are more expensive than the USSD subscription plans. Safe to say that it buys the smaller plans. The MTN HyNet has two major plans: LTE and WiMAX, which are further divided into the Unlimited and Standard Plans. Each plan has its own allotted speed and availability. The prices of each plan are as follows;


12gb N4,000 30 days

25gb N8,000 30 days

45gb N11,000 30 days

100gb N18,000 30 days

160gb N25,000 30 days

280gb N36,000 60 days

360gb N45,000 90 days

800gb N90,000 180 days

1.5tb N150,000 365 days

Instead of using just a sim card, the HyNet Flex comes with a router that different devices can connect to. Another thing to know about HyNet Flex, is that it is location limited. That is, it works only in specific locations. However, efforts are being made to tackle this challenge, and very soon it will be effective in all locations.

Subscribing to MTN HyNet Flex Plans

In this section, I am going to list the procedures to follow, to subscribe to a HyNet Flex plan. Stick with me.

  • Firstly, visit the MTN HyNet flex official page,
  • Then, renew subscription, or subscribe to MTN HyNet flex by going through the MTN hynet flex plans
  • Locate the plan you want, and click on the link to subscribe

Well, that is how you subscribe. But if you find it hard to subscribe, you can call the MTN customer service.

PS: To get the router, you should visit an MTN local center around you, and make inquiries.

How to Change MTN HyNet Flex passwords

There are two types of passwords on the HyNet Flex. They are, the admin password, and the Wi-Fi password (technically called WPA Key.) The admin password is used to gain access to the HyNet Flex settings pane, while the Wi-Fi password is used to connect devices to the router.

In this section, I am going to show you how you can change both passwords. Let us get into it!

Firstly, let us look at the admin password. The default admin password for every HyNet Flex router is “admin”. It is wise to change this password, as anyone who knows the default password may access your router without your permission. Even worse, such person could change your password!

Here’s how to change the password;

  • Connect your device to the MTN HyNet Flex router
  • Visit using your web browser
  • Login with the default password (admin)
  • Now, you are logged in, click on “modify login password”, and create a new password

Voila! You have changed the admin password. You can now control the access to your router.

Now, let us look at the Wi-Fi password. MTN HyNet Flex is a dual-band router; meaning that it can broadcast two bands (2.4GHz and 5.0GHz) at a time. The two bands can both possess different Wi-Fi passwords or WPA Keys, as it is technically known. So, it is good if you have your own passwords for these bands.

Here’s how to create the Wi-Fi password(s);

  • Again, connect your device to the HyNet Flex router
  • Visit using your browser
  • Login with your admin login password. Remember that the default password is “admin”
  • When you gain access to the dashboard, click the settings button under W-Fi
  • You would be redirected to a new page. On that page, there are settings for the 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz Wi-Fi bands
  • You can go on to set new passwords for each of them by modifying the passwords in the WLAN key field
  • After you have changed the WLAN key, click on “apply”. Upon successful WLAN key change, your device would be disconnected
  • Now, log in with your new password(s) and stay connected!

And that is how to change the Wi-Fi password. Did that help? If it did not, I recommend calling the MTN customer service.

Why Apcon flagged Glo NIN Advert?

Wondering why you no longer see GLO’s enticing NIN advert that featured the beautiful actress, Osas Ighodaro? Well, in this article, I’ll be answering you that question.

The GLO NIN Advert Video

Firstly, let’s go through the GLO NIN advert video, before diving into why APCON decided to flag the advert.

Why APCON Flagged GLO’s NIN Advert

According to reports, GLO’s NIN campaign which was aired on some TV stations and social media platforms was not submitted, and approved for broadcast, by the Advertising Standards Panels (ASP) in Nigeria. The statutory body is charged with the responsibility of ensuring that advertisements agree with the laws of the Federation, as well as the code of ethics of advertising in the nation.

In a letter addressed to Globacom Limited, and other media stations, Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria, (APCON) ordered that the advert be brought down. This was to stop further broadcast of the commercial on all media platforms; both broadcast media, and social media.

A statement was made by the council and signed by its CEO, Dr. Olalekan Fadolapo, lamenting the lack of decency in the commercial, featuring the female model, Osas Ighodaro. This advert which was exposed by Globacom, brought concerns, as it was targeted at the Nigerian market. It elicited complaints about the exposure of the model’s cleavage. The advert also, was never submitted for approval.

In the statement, it was added that APCON is committed to ensuring that the advertising eco system is clear of unlawful vices, and will use every lawful means to punish the violators of the Advertising Laws of the Federation. A part of the statement says as quoted, “The advertisment was neither submitted nor approved for exposure by the Advertising Standards Panel (ASP), the statutory body charged with the responsibility of ensuring that advertisements conform with the prevailing laws of the federation as well as the code of ethics of Advertising in Nigeria…”
