MTN extends Top Up hybrid contract to other price plans

MTN customers who want the convenience of a postpaid contract and the flexibility of a PayAsYouGo will be given more choice with the introduction of the MTN Top Up on selected existing price plans, from 1 August 2017.

MTN's Top Up contract provides customers with a contract value of either a combination of voice, SMS and data value or a rand value only option per month for the duration of the contract. Once the inclusive value has been used up within a given month, customers have an option of topping up with PayAsYouGo airtime or Data, Voice and SMS bundles.

MTN Top Up will be available on the following plans:

* My MTNChoice Flexi R55 TopUp;* My MTNChoice Flexi R110 TopUp;* My MTNChoice + Talk S TopUp;* My MTNChoice + Talk M TopUp;* My MTNChoice + Talk L TopUp;* My MTNChoice + S TopUp;* My MTNChoice + M TopUp; and* My MTNChoice + L TopUp.

Says Mapula Bodibe, executive for Consumer Business Unit: MTN South Africa: "The MTNTopUp gives customers the best of both worlds as they enjoy the convenience of a contract with the flexibility of recharging like PayAsYouGo. This gives our subscribers the ability to control and monitor their expenditure while they still receive the convenience of a postpaid contract and is one of the ways that MTN brightens the lives of its customers."
