MTN One Rate prepaid plan price cut to R1.20 per minute



MTN announced the price for voice calls on its One Rate prepaid plan to 2c per second (R1.20 per minute) to all networks at all times. The calls are charged per second. MTN’s previous One Rate price was 2.91c per second (R1.75 per minute), which means that customers stand to save R0.55 per minute.

Cell C was the first to cut prepaid rates to 99c/minute on per-second billing to all networks last year — to reduce prepaid tariffs significantly followed by Vodacom .


MTN South Africa chief marketing officer Serame Taukobong has claimed for the first time that the effective average rate paid by MTN Zone customers is 88c/minute, or 11c less than the rate paid by Cell C customers. MTN, the average discount is 67% off the published full Zone tariff of R2,50/minute for on-net calls and R3/minute for calls to other networks.

MTN has also improved its MTN Zone promotion by extending the current MTN Zone promotion through: Mahala Nights (which now offers up to 100% discounts between 22:00 and 05:00) Mahala Day (offering up to 100% discounts between 06:00 and 18:00) on weekdays and Mahala Weekend (offering continued discounted rates from Friday evenings right through to the end of the weekend).

MTN Customers will be able to enjoy discounts between 10% and 90% when calling 200 destinations while 100% discounts will be offered to a few countries including some of the most popular international calling destinations.
