MTN axes contract data prices again

Following a major backlash from contract customers in August, MTN has made an announcement regarding its contract data prices, reining in the quiet hikes it implemented last month.

Besides the price adjustments, data bundles on My MTNChoice include Night Express data, which is used up between midnight and 06:00.

My MTNChoice also offers subscribers the ability to manage their monthly bill by setting spend limits, receiving real-time balance inquiries, and letting customers recharge whenever they need.

Users can also set it up so that MTN sends them an SMS notification when they are close to reaching their selected out-of-bundle spend value.

The table below summarises the various price changes MTNChoice subscribers have seen over the last few weeks:
