MTN South Africa has taken the axe to prepaid data prices, reducing the cost of 10GB of data (including another 10GB for use at certain times of the night) to R149.

The new MTN BozzaGigs LTE tariff plan also offers 10GB (5GB plus 5GB night-time data) for R99 and comes a week after Vodacom cut headline prepaid data prices, with 1GB of data falling to R85 from R99 previously.

The new MTN deals have a validity period of 30 days. Prepaid customers will have to move to the BozzaGigs LTE plan before they can take advantage of the prices.

“Migrations to the new BozzaGigs are only allowed on new starter packs in the first 30 days from date of activation,” the company explained. The new plan will be launched to consumers on Wednesday.

In addition to the 10GB and 20GB plans, MTN is also offering a 15GB (7.5GB plus 7.5GB) plan for R129, also with 30-day validity from purchase.  — © 2021 NewsCentral Media

What a saving, long way to go compared to data prices in other countries.
Try competing in India.

I was paying that for 15Gb, now 20Gb.

So many strings attached – looks good but in reality useless. Actually you are only getting 10GB of day-time data. Cell C has far, far better deals.

In my opinion MTN has had a better infrastructure compared to its peers for the past 20 years.

Yes data and cell prices are expensive in SA.
You will be shocked what how much more you get for your money in India,
or how much less you pay.

thats why i use the unlimited fiber option, not mobile, but uses +/- 10GB per day for work (no games or movies) for +/- R500 per month

After 25y on contract I still can’t make a voice call from inside my home in JHB North.
