“MTN to Remove All Tariff Plans Starting From This Week”

“No More MTN Mid-night Call, MTN Pulse, MTN Zone”

----NCC Directs MTN To Scrap 10 Kobo Per Second Plans Effective Midnight - 


This is very serious... MTN has removed all tariff plans and left only: MTN TruTalk and MTN Smooth Talk Plus from midnight yesterday as a result of NCC's arm twisting.

This may be good news to some and bad news to others but it is definitely bad news to me. So i have to pay more for calls instead of less and I have to pay more to browse.

Edeson Online News has learnt from reliable sources that the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has directed MTN to halt with immediate effect all it’s plans with the 10 kobo per second rates. According to a source, about 8 million of it’s subscribers on the affected plans (MTN iPulse and MTN SuperSaver plus) would be automatically migrated to other plans starting from midnight, 14th of July, 2013 to avoid NCC sanctions.

No clear reason has been put forward for the NCC directive, but my guess is that it has to do with NCC’s designation of both MTN and Globacom Nigeria as “dominant” players and as a result would be closely monitored to ensure that they were not using “anti-competitive practices” to stifle the competition. If that’s the case, It would be funny as that very reason gave birth to the new plans being scrapped yesterday.

We have reached out to a few contacts and we’ll update if we hear something new on the issue.
