MTN South Africa has cut data prices by as much as 60% with the price of the 1GB of ad hoc data reduced to R85.
“This further data price reduction as well as our efforts to supporting small businesses, are some of the most impactful ways we believe we can reignite the economy. Our efforts in this regard will be further enabled by the allocation of much-needed spectrum,” says Godfrey Motsa, MTN South Africa’s CEO.
“A successful and sustainable South Africa needs large and small businesses prospering side by side and immediate release of the high demand spectrum that continuously reduces data prices even further.”
The reduction in the 30-day data bundles portfolio will give MTN customers access to even more cost-effective options while using the best performing network in the country.
- MTN has reduced the pricing of its sub 1GB 30-day data bundle portfolio by up to 26%
- The pricing of its 1GB data bundle has been reduced by 14%
- The pricing of its data bundles larger than 1GB has been reduced by up to 60%.
In addition to the reduced pricing of the larger than 1GB data bundles, MTN has added more data value for night-time use starting from the 2GB bundle and above.
The 30-day data bundle pricing reductions come at a time when MTN has recently reduced the pricing of its hourly and daily data bundle pricing by up to 20% in March this year as a part of its ongoing voluntary undertakings to make data more accessible to all its customers.
“MTN is committed to do as much as we can to reduce data prices, increase small business support and grow black economic empowerment. We want to be a part of rebuilding Mzansi and we are ready to lead from the front for a better South Africa for all,” concludes Motsa.
