New MTN prices revealed

MTN is introducing revised subscription rates for its contract and data plans, and is reviewing its prepaid data bundle prices (Also see: Massive MTN price hikes: how much more you will pay).

MTN said it has not increased contract subscription prices for over a decade despite rising input costs.

The company added it also had to invest substantially in generators and back-up batteries to power its base stations during power outages.

“All these cumulative costs have compelled us to review pricing as the last resort,” said MTN.

MTN said in accordance with the Consumer Protection Act and its Subscriber Agreement terms and conditions, it will give its subscribers 20 working days’ notice prior to effecting the price changes for contract customers.

The new prepaid data bundle pricing kicks in on 23 April, while the new post-paid prices take effect from 13 May.
