Mtn Increases Call Tariff On Its True Talk Plans by Godyke(m): 7:41am On Oct 13, 2015
I noticed that MTN has recently increased call rates on its TrueTalk and TrueTalk+ tariff plans. While I was trying to confirm it, I recieved an sms from MTN with this message;

"Y'hello! Thank you for using TrueTalk. In adhrence with regulatory requirements, TrueTalk is now 20k/sec. Enjoy 100% bonus on every recharge by dialing *885*PIN"

My sister also recieved the same message on her truetalk+ plan.

I aslo noticed that the TrueTalk+ plan has been cancelled, as her account balance message no longer displays TrueTalk+ but just TrueTalk.

Did anybody notice this new development?

Lets wait and see if they will openly advertise the reversal. They have cleverly kept it on the low while putting more emphasis on the beta talk bonus.

stop embarrassing yourself. You said the screenshot was to show that you were still on trutalk abi? Now answer this......if they increased the charge from 11kobo to 20 kobo per second will that change the name of the plan?

My concern is, why is this so called regulation targetting only MTN. Other networks have similiar plans like the TrueTalk+ plan that allow subscribers to make call across all networks @11k/sec with N5 daily access charge.

It would be less competitive if MTN had continued with that rate because most mtn subscribers will not be willingly to call other networks rather they will prefer to call MTN numbers . Did you remember on this forum when etisalat drag mtn to court over family and friends package? They said MTN restricted registration of FAF to mtn numbers. With this policy, most subscribers will want to use other networks to make calls to any number rather than use mtn because it is a bit expensive. MTN are smart enough to roll out bundle packs : on net calls, data bundle and international call bundles at cheaper rates. This time around they still win being the market leader in the market. But on a serious note, MTN apart from etisalat tends to be innovative.

Are you saying other networks stand to gain something when other network subscribers call subscribers on their own network?

Dont worry when the increment fully takes effect maybe by then you will learn how to think before you talk.

Just type *123# and send to display list of options. Select option 2 which is TARIFF MIGRATION and send. A list of 6 plans will be displayed. Choose the number of the option that best suits your choice and send.

Yes. The aim of the policy is to stair competition among operators not one operator taking the lion share all the time. I wish similar is done to the paytv because DStv keeps on having patent right to selected channels

They're trying to encourage fair competition. Not really fair!
