MTN now offers unlimited on-net calls to customers

Effective from 1 July to 31 August, MTN postpaid customers can make unlimited MTN-to-MTN calls on a new Unlimited MTN-to-MTN Calls promotion. This is a move by MTN to offer more value to its postpaid customers and deliver on its promise of providing the best technology and services to its customers.

Customers who qualify for this promotion are those on MyMTNChoice 200, MyMTNChoice 350, MyMTNChoice 500, MyMTNChoice 100, MyMTNChoice Talk S, MyMTNChoice Talk M and MyMTNChoice Talk L.

This promotion is not only limited to existing customers. New MTN customers who sign up for a contract (including ports), and customers who perform an upgrade on specific price plans with a device or SIM only tariff plan, will also qualify for Free Unlimited MTN-to-MTN calls.

Says Mapula Bodibe, Executive for Consumer Business Unit: MTN South Africa: “We are living in tough economic times, this promotion seeks to offer the best value to our customers to alleviate the financial pressures that they are facing in a sustainable way.”


Does anyone here have one of the contracts that qualify? If so, have you checked your account to see if you are being billed for MTN to MTN calls?

Am I reading this press release incorrectly, as I understand it, the promotion is that it is applicable to existing, new and upgrade customers who are on one of the plans mentioned in the article?
This is ridiculous and you only notice it when you go to other countries. Here in Aus on contract or PAYG calls to anywhere in Aus are free as well as unlimited SMS. For $70 a month I also get 7GB of data, $300 for international calls and 7GB of data. SA cell companies are ripoffs.
