MTN has reduced rates on data contracts and data bundles by up to 20% – and MTN customers can now also pay as little as 20c per Mb when buying the 1Gb data contract or data bundle.
Donovan Smith, GM: consumer marketing at MTN South, says: “We believe that the broader population, both contract and Pay-as-you-Go customers, can benefit immensely from having affordable access to broadband, and as network operators we need to acknowledge the obvious barriers to entry. With this price reduction we aim to bring mobile data within reach of a larger portion of our population.”
In addition to the price reduction, MTN has extended its range of data contracts, adding a 350Mb contract to the existing 500Mb and 1Gb contracts.
As part of the 24 month data contract, customers can receive the F@stLink E220 USB Mini Modem or the F@stLink E620 Data card. The F@stLink E220 USB Mini Modem plays a particularly important role in increasing the accessibility of MTN’s broadband, in that it can be used with desktop and laptop computers. Customers using desktop computers at home or in the office can now also connect to the internet using MTN’s data network.
MTN has also added a 500Mb bundle to the 10Mb, 100Mb, 350Mb and 1Gb bundles,which are available to both contract and Pay-as-yo- Go customers at the same price.
