Thanks for the warning but what can we as customers do? Maybe we should petition ICASA to INCREASE the MTRs or maybe we can have a fkn bake sale to help raise funds to save the sinking ship that is MTN:
South Africa ARPU Sept 2013: R106,06 /quarter
Total Users: 25million
Revenue/quarter= 2.6 billion = 10.6 billion/a
If cutting that MTR into a quarter really drops your revenue by an equal amount, I have no idea how you will survive on 2.6billion per year. Maybe we should tell your investors that.
MTN doesn't care about SA except for you wallets, they never reply to media queries, have bad systems. The only reason they are commenting is because their interest in our wallets is threatened. R2.30 a minute on Anytime products show this.
So he is blatantly admitting that the MTN business model in ZA is based on an environment of week regulation and oligopoly. Well in that case don't let the door hit your ass as you GTFO of South Africa!
