MTN ZONE Never Lower Than 12 Kobo Per Sercond? Help by Greatfes17: 11:33am On Jun 19, 2015
For the past couple of weeks, my MTN sim powered by MTN Zone has not been what I use to know it for.

With my sim on the zone plan, I used to make calls at different call rates depending on the time of the. The call rates can be anything from 24kb/per second to as low as 12 or 8kb/per second. Some tines even as low as 4kb. At extreme cases more than 24kb.

Over the weeks, it has never been lower than 12kb/per second. On average it has been 20kb. Am not satisfied with this so that gave birth to this write up.

My friends on this plan experience the same issue. My travel from Awka to Abakaliki never caused any change. Hence, it is same in both places.

If you make calls at lower rates on Zone plan or pass through same issue please comment.
Maybe you know of other plans better than this Zone stuff that an average caller like me can migrate to, then help.

Any comment is welcomed. THANKS!!!

Do you have an alternative?

I detest the process our network providers change things without 'any formal' notice.

The plan is better for fixed number callers but I call diverse numbers and they may be charging high for calls to non registered numbers.

It is public. Most customers do not read the long literature. One of such terms is that mtn has the right to change or stop tariff without the customer's consent. Haven't seen that in most advertisment on tv, most service provider usually say terms and conditions apply?. You can check that on the website before migrating to any tariff plan.

Haven't you seen that in most advertisment on tv, most service provider usually say terms and conditions apply?. You can check that on the website before migrating to any tariff plan. Once you buy a sim, and you insert, there is a leaflet showing their terms and condition. It is assumed that you had read it before inserting the sim . Once you open the pack or insert sim to your phone, you have accepted the offer. The same rule all apply to tariff plan. The best way to read some or their terms, is to check Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ).

That's the secret they have being hidding only few persons are aware. All the service providers do it once in a while. For example glo bounce was 12k/sec as at 2013 but now it's 15k/sec. They changed the plan without even notifying their customers. When I asked why, they say terms and conditions apply.

It's when you buy number of minutes as we buy mb for browsing. For example 10,000 kb * 0.01 ie 1k/kb gives N100.

No you didn't quite get it. This is not a tariff plan, it's called Akanchawa recharge. You load only N100 with *311*pin# and it converts to 11 or 10mins calls, about 10sms and 4mb data. If it finishes you can't recharge it again until the last recharge is up to 7 days. It's a good deal, I was using it before, but now I think I have a better plan,
