MTN South Africa has reduced the prices of its fibre broadband data bundles by 50% to “boost the competitiveness of its propositions”, it said on Tuesday.
In addition, those signing up for a 24-month contract before the end of September will get free installation and router plus bonus data bundles that are the equivalent of the bundle option, it said.
They will also get twice the amount of night bundle data to utilise between midnight and 6am.
The installation fee for month-to-month contracts has been reduced from R3 000 to R999 to “enhance the products’ value proposition”.
Bundles start at 20GB, which comes with 20GB of bonus data and 40GB of night data for R40. A 1TB bundle is inclusive of 1TB of bonus data and 2TB of night data for R999.
“Though MTN does not yet offer an uncapped data bundle, customers have an expansive range of data denominations they can choose from, and also have an option of tailoring a data package that suits their needs and budget,” the company said.
“For example, subscribers who opt for Supersonic 1 package for a monthly subscription of R764 will receive 100GB of data, 100GB bonus data and 200GB of night data at speeds of 20Mbit/s.
“Supersonic 2 offers 500GB of provisioned data, 500GB worth of bonus data and 100GB of night data at speeds of 50Mbps for a monthly subscription of R1 299.
“For a monthly subscription of R1 699, heavy usage customers can sign up for the Supersonic 3 package, which offers 1TB of data, 1TB of bonus data and 2TB of night data at speeds of 100Mbit/s.”
Chief enterprise business officer at MTN Business Alpheus Mangale described the new pricing as “compelling”.
