MTN Rwanda slashes out-of-bundle data charges

Thursday 30 November 2017 | 11:23 CET | News
MTN Rwanda has reduced out-of-bundle data charges to RWF 10 per MB from RWF 56 previously, New Times reported. MTN Rwanda CEO Bart Hofker, told the paper that the new tariffs will apply for all clients, postpaid and prepaid. While the move will cause the operator to "take a revenue hit", they expect a recovery within the next three months. The move could also address a lot of customer complaints as a large share of complaints to the call centre are about the issue.
