MTN BlackBerry BIS will be replaced by a new "BlackBerry Absolute" cost R59p/m for 200MB

 

This might sound bad to MTN BlackBerry customers if this rumours are true that MTN planning to replace BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) package with a crap package leaked as "BlackBerry Absolute". mybroaband source find this new package replaces BIS with "BlackBerry Absolute” service plan, which will also cost R59 per month, comes with a 200MB “fair use” limit. An out of bundle rate of R0.65 per MB will apply when the 200MB limit is reached.

I am happy I left MTN to Cell C (port to Cell C) this months,  where I buy standard Bundles with R75 I get R500 of bundle rate of R0.15 per MB.  I will regard this as insult if I was still MTN customer. Thank you Cell C for offering me the value for money package.

The other bad side of this will not cost MTN alone Blackberry brand which is already in trouble will not die in Sounth Africa mobile market states. The down fall for Nokia was better because there is still that trust thier hardware is the best. But blackbery which only stands with BIS will be left naked.

“BlackBerry Absolute

According to  mybroadband, MTN BlackBerry customers will no longer be able to buy the uncapped BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) package from 1 March 2013. It will be replaced by a new capped service called “BlackBerry Absolute”. This is according to an MTN document dated 5 February 2013.

According to the document, the new MTN “BlackBerry Absolute” service plan, which will also cost R59 per month, comes with a 200MB “fair use” limit. An out of bundle rate of R0.65 per MB will apply when the 200MB limit is reached.

“The current BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) which offers users uncapped usage on the blackberry.net APN will become legacy,” the document states. “This is in line with the MTN Smartphone strategy and the shift in focus from uncapped to tiered capped services.”

The letter goes on to say that the Blackberry Absolute service plan can now be packaged with MTN Anytime, MTN OffPeak, MTN Procall, and MTN Internet packages, including their TopUp variants. This service will be available to all PayAsYouGo plans as well.
