MTN Uganda Revises its Daily Data Bundles, Increases Data Size For Same Price

MTN Uganda announces a 65% price cut on its daily data bundles.

MTN Uganda today announced a revision of its daily data bundles launching bigger data bundles at the same existing prices. This move according to the telco, makes the daily data bundles the most affordable bundles, giving customers more MBs at no extra cost.

In a press conference held at the MTN Uganda head offices, Mr. Wim Vanhelleputte, the MTN Uganda CEO noted that the move is a continuous effort by MTN to deliver value for customers at the most affordable pricing and continue driving our customers’ progress through connectivity. “We have revised our daily data offers permanently to give more value to our customers, because it’s our belief that everyone deserves the benefits of a modern connected life,” he said.

These new offers focus on the smaller, most frequently used data bundles by our customers. The repackaged daily data bundles have more MBs but maintain the existing price, giving customers more data for the same old price. For instance, at UGX500, customers will get 65MB instead of 40MB while at UGX1000, they will get 165MB instead of 100MBs (see the table below for the new bundles).

To complement the customer benefit, MTN has invested significantly in optimizing and rolling out new 4G data network sites across the country to enhance positive customer experiences. A recent report from a survey carried out by a global telecom monitoring and testing firm, Rohde & Schwarz, in the last quarter of 2021 ranked MTN’s data as the best in the country in terms of quality of user experience as well as speed, reliability, and coverage.

Mr. Vanhelleputte told journalists, “MTN committed to doing all it takes in terms of providing affordable data, on the best data network. And speaking in the context of the times we’re in, we hope these bundles with bigger MBs will support our customers recover from the effects of the lockdown, whether in business, education, or otherwise.”
