With effect from November 14, 2022, MTN Ghana has announced a 15% increase in its mobile data prices for both Pay Monthly and Pay-As-You-Go customers.
In addition to purchases made through Electronic Voucher Distribution (EVD), MTN Pulse, and Data Zone—with the exception of XtraTime—the review also covers data bundle deals offered on the short codes 138 and 170.
With this revision, mobile data consumers will get smaller data packages for the same price.
Below are detailed examples of how customers’ bundles will be calculated.
- A GhS3 bundle gives you 476 MB of Data, from Mon. November 14, 2022, GhS3 bundle will give you 410 MB
- A GhS5 bundle gives you 602 MB of Data, from Mon. November 14, 2022, GhS5 bundle will give you 525 MB
- A GhS10 bundle gives you 971 MB of Data, from Mon. November 14, 2022, GhS10 bundle will give you 845 MB
- A GhS30 bundle gives you 2803MB of Data, from Mon. November 14, 2022, GhS30 bundle will give you 2153.63MB
Customers of Fiber Broadband and Fixed Wireless Access (4G Router / Turbonet) are not affected by this price hike.
Noel Kojo-Ganson, the Chief Commercial Officer for MTN, gave an explanation for the increase in Data Bundle charges, stating that recent economic changes that have increased operating costs made the reassessment necessary.
We have had a direct impact from these economic changes, thus in order to maintain the correct balance, we have had to take pricing hikes into account across our organization.
Mr. Kojo-Ganson added, “MTN recognises that we are in very tough times and would like to assure our Customers that we will continue to offer them the convenience and flexibility in the purchase of data bundles at their desired price points via the MTN Flexi and Non-Expiry Bundles. Also, customers will continue to enjoy the 50% bonus incentive on MyMTN App & MoMo (valid for 7 days) for 4G customers.
MTN is still committed to spending USD 1 billion by 2025 to further develop its network and enhance customer experiences.
Our goal is to pioneer digital solutions for Africa’s advancement in accordance with our Ambition 2025 vision.
