MTN has slashed the tariffs and extended the promotional period of its popular MTN Sky promotional period due to popular demand. The MTN Sky prepaid bundles have been extended to run until 31 December 2015, while the MTN Sky promotion has been extended until the 3rd of September 2015.
MTN launched the MTN Sky tariff package in September last year. This package offers contract subscribers
unlimited calls and SMSs and uncapped data in line with MTN’s quest of providing its customers with value and simplicity.
Since MTN Sky was introduced to market last year, the tariff package has been continuously improved and extended, which affirms its popularity in the market.
Contract customers can sign-up on MTN Sky from R1 299 for the sim only deal on a 24 month contract.
Competitive deals are also available on device deals and subscription depends on the device included in the package.
For example, MTN customers can get a Samsung S6 and S6 Edge smartphones on MTN Sky packages for a monthly subscription of R1899 and R1999 respectively. This promotional price has been further extended to run until the 3rd of September 2015.
In order to extend the MTN Sky offering to more customers, MTN introduced a range of MTN Sky bundles to prepaid subscribers. MTN subsequently introduced promotional offers on Sky bundles which have been well received by the market.
