MTN slashes fibre data bundle pricing


MTN has reduced the prices of its Supersonic fibre data bundles by 50%.

Customers who sign up for an MTN Supersonic 24 month contract before 1 October 2016 will also receive free installation, a free router and bonus data bundles that are the equivalent of the bundle option.

In addition, they will be provisioned with twice the amount of night bundle data to use between 00h00 and 06h00.

The installation fee for month-to-month contracts have been dropped from R3 000.00 to R999.00 to enhance the products’ value proposition.

MTN customers have a wide variety of data bundles to choose from, starting from the 20Gb bundle which comes with 20Gb of bonus data and 40Gb of night data for R40. The 1 000Gb of bundle is inclusive of 1000Gb of bonus data and 2000Gb of night data for R999.

Though MTN does not yet offer an uncapped data bundle, customers have an expansive range of data denominations they can choose from, and also have an option of tailoring a data package that suits their needs and budget.

* For example, subscribers who opt for Supersonic 1 package for a monthly subscription of R764 will receive 100Gb of data, 100Gb bonus data and 200Gb of night data at speeds of 20Mbps;

* Supersonic 2 offers 500Gb of provisioned data, 500Gb worth of bonus data and 100Gb of night data at speeds of 50Mbps for a monthly subscription of R1 299;

* For a monthly subscription of R1699, heavy usage customers can sign up for Supersonic 3 package which offers 1000Gb of data, 1000Gb of bonus data and 2000Gb of night data at speeds of 100Mbps.

Alpheus Mangale, chief enterprise business officer at MTN Business, says: “This pricing is compelling and offers value to our customers. The bonus data and the night data that are inclusive in these packages ensures that we provide competitive solutions that meet the diverse needs of our customers and continue to lead the delivery of a bold, new digital world.”
