The repackaged daily data bundles have more MBs but maintain the existing price, giving customers more data for the same old price. Effective yesterday, each time you load a daily bundle of shs1,000, you no longer get 100MBs, you get 165MBs. 

Telecom giant MTN Uganda yesterday significantly announced the cutting of the internet data charges to increase the rate of internet usage by Ugandans.

Speaking about the move at the MTN headquarters yesterday (Thursday Feburuary 3, 2022) , the MTN Uganda Chief Executive Officer, Wim Vabhelleputte, said the decision is a continuous effort by MTN to deliver value for customers at the most affordable pricing and continue driving the company’s 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,” Vanhelleputte explained.

These new offers focus on the smaller and most frequently used data bundles by the MTN 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 UGX 500/-, customers will get 65MB instead of 40MB while at UGX 1000/-, they will get 165MB instead of 100MBs,” MTN said in the explanatory statement issued.

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.

“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,” Vanhelleputte stated.
