MTN announced on Friday, 29 August 2014, that it had launched a new pre-paid tariff plan called MTN Talk Free, offering subscribers free on-network voice minutes after the first 3 minutes of a call.
The first 3 minutes of a call to another MTN number cost R1.20 per minute and are billed per second (2c/second).
The remaining 57 minutes of the call are then free.
To switch to the tariff plan, pre-paid users can dial *141*4*3#.
Prices on MTN Talk Free are summarised in the table below:
|MTN Talk Free||Tariff|
|MTN-to-MTN calls||R1.20 for the first 3 minutes (billed per second), then free for 57 minutes|
|MTN to off-net calls||79c/minute (billed per second)|
