“The Internet Bundle rate  reduction has proven to be extremely successful with customers, addressing their need to be connected at all times, with the rise of internet data consumption requirements. We at first extended the data offerings promotion to our customers, but have now decided to make it permanent to provide our customers a bold, new digital world,” says Brian Gouldie, Chief Marketing Officer at MTN SA.

The revised subscription rates are:

a.      20BM @R10, was R10 for 10MB

b.      100MB @R29, was R49 for 75MB

c.      300MB @R79, was R149

d.      500MB @99, was R189

e.      1GB @R149, was R289

f.       2GB @R249, was R389

MTN is also giving customers extra free data on every Internet bundle purchased as part of a limited Summer Internet Bundle Giveback promotion, which runs until 31 January 2014.

To load an MTN bundle customers can simply dial *141*2# or download the myMTNza App from their app store. In addition to the promotion, customers can continue to take advantage of MTN’s existing big data sale, which offers reduced prices and additional value.
