MTN has increased its international calling prices, with some rates climbing as much as 57%. This is according to a report by ITWeb.

The report stated that MTN’s international rates went up on 5 March, and that MTN clients were not informed of the increases.

MTN reportedly confirmed the increases, but did not provide detailed feedback on why customers were not directly informed.

“MTN reassesses its retail international calling rates from time to time,” said MTN in the report.

“A variety of factors are taken into consideration, such as any increases in the termination costs imposed on MTN… as well as external factors such as the recent decline in foreign currency exchange rates.”

MTN was asked for a current and pre-increase pricing breakdown, but did not reply by the time of publication.
