MTN South Africa to reduce out-of-bundle data prices

Friday 10 August 2018 | 09:56 CET | News
MTN South Africa plans to reduce its out-of-bundle (OOB) data prices this year to improve internet bundle adoption and revenue, reports Mybroadband. MTN Group CEO Rob Shuter and MTN South Africa CEO Godfrey Motsa said the operator has been reducing these rates across the whole portfolio. Shuter told MyBroadband they would rather people think of it as the pay-as-you-go rate rather than the out-of-bundle rate.
