Larry Annetts, Chief Marketing Officer, MTN South Africa – stated that: “One of the highlights of the My MTNChoice plans has been giving customers the ability to track their usage in real-time to better manage their budget. Today’s announcement takes that customer-centric approach to the next level by giving internet contract users not only the ability buy bundles as and when they need them, but also to set their data limits and the tools to better manage their spend to avoid any potential bill shock.”

In addition, MTN has lowered the voice rates on MyMTNChoice from R1.95 to R1.20 per minute and SMS from 70 cents to 50 cents.
