“MTN Roaming is now an even more affordable and convenient means for MTN PayAsYouGo, Contract and TopUp customers to always stay connected when travelling abroad,” says Serame Taukobong, Chief Marketing Officer at MTN SA.
MTN introduced Seamless Roaming in March this year to provide MTN PayAsYouGo and TopUp customers with the ability to load airtime using foreign airtime vouchers in Southern and Eastern Africa regions where MTN operates.
“MTN has now decided to further reduce roaming rates to encourage customers to stay connected on the MTN network while travelling in Southern and Eastern Africa regions. This means that all MTN PayAsYouGo, TopUp and contract customers can now travel with their MTN cellphones to MTN Uganda, MTN Zambia, MTN Swaziland, MTN Rwandacel and Mascom Botswana, and enjoy one of the most affordable roaming call and internet rates,” he adds.
The new roaming rates have been revised substantially and will be charged as follows:
- International calls or calls to home (South Africa) – R5.00 per minute
- Local calls – R3.00 per minute
- Receiving calls – R4.00 per minute
- Sending SMSs – R1.50 per SMS
- Data – 25c per 25KB
“With the new voice and data rates, it is our intention to encourage our loyal customers to make the most of the MTN network, no matter where they roam in Southern and Eastern Africa. We are also encouraging our customers to ensure they comply with RICA requirements by simply taking their ID and proof of residence to their nearest MTN store, thereby ensuring they experience uninterrupted service during their travels,” says Taukobong.
