MTN crashes data roaming rate
TO ensure internet accessibility at affordable rate while roaming, MTN has slashed its data roaming rate with the introduction of its new roaming package – ‘Roam like Home with MTN One World’.
The MTN One World rates will enable MTN prepaid and post-paid subscribers, who travel out of the country, to have access to the internet on their mobile phones and send text messages, paying a standard home rate of 5kobo per kilobyte and N4 per SMS, as if they are in Nigeria. This service is available in any of its 19 operating countries.
The firm’s Chief Marketing Officer, Larry Annetts, explained that the key strategic focus for the new tariff plan is to ensure data communication at the most affordable rate.
“We are always committed to deliver a new world of digital experience to our customers and the thrust of this initiative is to ensure friendly roaming tariff rates, where our customers who travel to any of our 19 operating countries can still feel at home, browsing at a standard home rate of 5kobo per kilobyte.
“Our customers traveling to Ghana, Cameroun, Republic of Benin, South Africa and other MTN operating countries can continue to update their profile messages, share pictures and great moments on social networks, as well as read their emails and browse the internet without any differential in data cost.”
Apart from the data rate, customers can also enjoy same SMS home rate of N4, affordable call rates and other affordable friendly roaming services that MTN offers.
