MTN launches fortnight and weekly data bundles
Today, MTN launched a fortnightly data bundle that is tailored for customers who want to consume a stipulated amount of data within a shorter time frame, without having to commit to a monthly period that does not match their usage requirements.
The fortnightly data bundle is valued at R79 for 1GB of data. Alongside the fortnightly data bundle, MTN has introduced weekly data bundles that have a range of denominations.
The weekly bundles are priced at R7 for 50MB, R12 for 100MB, R29 for 300MB, R39 for 500MB and R59 for 1GB.
These new tariffs are part of MTN data promotions which will run for six months effective from 2nd March.
Larry Annetts, MTN Chief Marketing Officer: MTN South Africa, says the introduction of fortnightly and weekly data bundles is part of MTN’s strategy of making sure that their products remain relevant.
“The preferences of our customers vary significantly as such the launch of these data bundles is testament of our commitment to meeting their needs. We believe that these new offers will provide our customers with value, simplicity and flexibility,” says Annetts.
Stretch your money with in bundle rates
MTN has also revised its out of bundles rates to 99 cents for prepaid customers, this includes the data base price for the PayPerSecond price plan.
“These revised out of bundles are meant to encourage our customers to purchase data bundles and experience the value offered by in-bundle rates which are as low as 6 cents. This move also shields our customers from bill shock,” Annetts concludes.
