MTN Uganda in partnership with TakeNow is offering its valued customers a more comprehensive range of smartphone choices on a mpola mpola payment scheme. Through this strategic collaboration, MTN customers will now have access to an extensive selection of Tecno, Itel, and Infinix smartphones in the open market, coupled with the exclusive benefits of the telco’s connectivity services.

To further enhance this customer-centric initiative, MTN Uganda will offer free data (1GB) every month throughout the repayment period, enabling customers to experience seamless connectivity and make the most of their smartphones.

Somdev Sen, the Chief Marketing Officer of MTN Uganda, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership, stating the telco is thrilled to join forces with TakeNow to bring a wider range of smartphone choices to their esteemed customers.

“At MTN, our focus has always been on delivering exceptional value and convenience to our customers, and this partnership aligns perfectly with our commitment to offering industry-leading connectivity solutions,” said Sen adding that “By expanding the smartphone options through Tecno, Itel, and Infinix, we are providing our customers with more opportunities to find their ideal device that fits their lifestyle.”

Sen further said, “Together with Tecno, Itel, and Infinix, we are creating a stronger ecosystem that caters to our customers’ diverse needs, allowing them to stay connected and make progress in this digital age. At MTN, we are dedicated to enabling our customers’ balanced life, and these new smartphones are a testament to that commitment.”

Under the MTN Pay Mpola Mpola scheme, customers can acquire their desired smartphone by making an initial payment of 40% of the total cost [of the phone] —walking away with the device. The remaining balance can then be paid in manageable monthly installments over a period of 6 months.

TakeNow Director of Sales, Ronald Mugulusi, said, “With this partnership, every Ugandan can get a Tecno, Itel, and Infinix smartphone on loan. With a small initial deposit, you can walk away with your favorite smartphone and pay the balance Mpola Mpola, plus these phones come with free MTN 7GB worth of data.”

MTN Uganda remains committed to providing innovative solutions that empower its customers and contribute to Africa’s digital progress. Through partnerships and collaborations like this one with TakeNow, MTN continues to reinforce its position as a leader in the telecommunications industry.
