*All Internet packages are monthly rates for 24 month contracts

Customers can get an Internet Package on a 24 month contract from their nearest MTN store.

Alternatively, if you have your own device (modem, dongle, router or tablet) you can bring your device, and treat yourself to a SIM-only Internet package.

“The reduction of our Internet Packages and Bundle rates does not only bode well for MTN customers in general, but also to our BlackBerry® customer base,” says Taukobong. “The new rates offer an affordable and convenient alternative for customers who deplete their BlackBerry® Absolute and BlackBerry® Tiered Services bundle allocation to continue enjoying the benefits that come with owning a BlackBerry® handset. Inherently, we are enabling our customers, who come from different walks of life with diverse needs and demands, to be part of the growing digital community without being limited by cost and quality of service,” he concludes.
