The company has introduced the MTN Zone International Calling promotion, which applies to customers on MTN Zone PayAsYouGo, MTN Zone Anytime TopUp and MTN Zone Off-Peak TopUP price structures.

The service covers destinations across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the USA.

“MTN is always evaluating its price plans and packages in line with our customers’ needs and usage behaviour,” says Serame Taukobong, Chief Marketing Officer at MTN SA. “South Africa hosts a significant number of people from neighbouring and foreign countries who want to connect with business partners, friends and family overseas at affordable rates.”

The MTN Zone International Calling promotion offers up to 100% Mahala discounts on international call rates, depending on the called destination.

Customers will be able to enjoy discounts between 10% and 90% when calling 200 destinations, while 100% discounts will be offered to a few countries including some of the most popular international calling destinations.

Customers calling any of the destinations discounted between 10% and 90% will be able to make their calls at these rates for any length of time between 06h00 and 18h00 on weekdays whilst the 100% discount will only apply only for one specific hour, after which the normal discounted rate (between 10% and 90%) will apply.

The countries which will be discounted at 100% will vary for the duration of the promotion. MTN customers will be able to view the promotional discounts on or by dialling *111*2# on their mobile device.

The promotional rates are only available between 6am to 6pm from Monday to Friday. The promotion runs from 1 November 2012 to 31 January 2013, and is not available to customers on MTN Call Per Second, MTN OneRate, MTN Muziq, MTN TopUp price plans or MTN Anytime Contract customers.
