The linked phone number helps you check, make bundle and also know any issue relating to your TurboNet Fibre Broadband via SMS from MTN.

You can use the *5057# code option to bundle or using your MTN Mobile Money to purchase the data bundle for your MTN TurboNet.

Can I do data rollover?

Yes, data rollover is allowed on the MTN TurboNet Fibre Broadband. Just like any other Fibre Broadband approach, you just have to bundle before your 30 days validity.

You would have to bundle before your 30 days period and whatever internet bundle you had previously would be carried unto the next month.

Which bundle is best?

No one can tell the type of bundle which is best for you though — but the only way I can recommend is to buy the biggest bundle firstly, then switch it to the lowest bundle in the next month as you have more bundle left but the cheapest bundle will just be of help to make a rollover.
