“We are introducing an offering that would address the growing needs of our customer’s to make cheaper calls to international destinations either for business or for personal reasons. We understand that these are financially strenuous times and it is of importance that we boldly bring products that seek to address customers’ needs for affordable value,” says MTN SA Chief Marketing Officer, Brian Gouldie.

Gouldie says that MTN observed a need amongst a large base of its customers to make calls to African countries.

“These customers are key to MTN as they have a high demand for international calling minutes. We strive to enable these customers to stay connected to international destinations and with our low international call rates, MTN customers will enjoy MTN’s world class network for longer.”

Customers that are not on MTN can either buy an MTN starter pack to join MTN or port to MTN in order to enjoy the reduced international call rates to African destinations.
