Do you burn through a lot of data in a short period of time, say in about a week or two? Well, if you do, then MTN has just launched a set of new data bundles that will appeal to your wallet.

Instead of having to buy a monthly data bundle, MTN announced that from today you will be able to buy weekly and fortnightly (once every two weeks) data bundles in a variety of denominations.

The fortnightly data bundle is R79 for 1GB of data, while the weekly bundle is R7 for 50MB, R12 for 100MB, R29 for 300MB, R39 for 500MB and R59 for 1GB. MTN also explained that the new prices for data bundles are part of a promotion, which will last until August.

“The preferences of our customers vary significantly; as such the launch of these data bundles is testament of our commitment to meeting their needs. We believe that these new offers will provide our customers with value, simplicity and flexibility,” Larry Annetts, MTN Chief Marketing Officer for MTN South Africa, said in a press statement.

But MTN hasn’t forgotten about for prepaid customers, as it dropped its out-of-bundle rates to 99 cents.

“These revised out-of-bundles are meant to encourage our customers to purchase data bundles and experience the value offered by in-bundle rates, which are as low as 6 cents. This move also shields our customers from bill shock,” Annetts concludes.
