VAAL TRIANGLE - From today, MTN’s pricing in the sub-1GB 30-day data bundles has been reduced by up to 50%. MTN has today gone live with its revised pricing for its sub-1GB 30-day prepaid data bundles. This follows MTN’s announcement last month of its voluntary undertakings to address the Competition Commission Data Service Market Inquiry. The larger bundles have also seen volume and pricing improvements. MTN said in a statement its undertakings take the form of voluntary social compact & price reductions, a daily lifeline of free data to customers and free access to public benefit organisations. CEO Godfrey Motsa says the pricing revisions seek to offer lower pricing and offer more value to all types of MTN customers across the country. Motsa says from as little as R10 these new price bundles are designed for all wallet sizes, so they can help keep customers connected to friends, family and the economy throughout the month, even when budgets are tight.
- MTN has also launched its 20MB daily data lifeline, which subscribers can use on the Ayoba messaging app.
- MTN has zero-rated hundreds of educational websites that offer learning materials for different grades and subjects. The zero-rated websites include eccurriculum.co.za, ecexams.co.za,africanstorybook.org,khanacademy.org, learn.mindset.africa and techteacher.co.za. MTN is currently also liaising with South African universities to assist with zero-rating of applicable sites.
