Well, here’s the report:
MTN Nigeria Communications Limited has heightened the price wars in Nigeria’s telecom sector once again, with a revolutionary discount on its tariff structure that brings succour to its over 35 million subscribers. MTN rolled out three pocket-friendly initiatives namely: MTN Magic Number; MTN Talk-On and MTN Family and Friends. Explaining the true value inherent in the tariff discount in Lagos yesterday Ahmed Farroukh, MTN’s Chief Executive Officer said: “Every customer can enjoy the unbeatable value of the MTN Magic Number. Every customer can make free on-net calls to and from one number for 30 whole days and nights.” Speaking at the product launch at Protea Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, Farroukh said that “this change is one that every customer can experience in a tangible way.” For those who make long calls, Farroukh explained “ MTN Talk-On ensures that both your conversations and purse strings remain unbroken. This is because it offers the lowest first minute call rate in the market and an incredible 25 k per second for the rest of the day.” Similarly, for most customers who want to keep valuable relationships on the front burner, Farroukh explained that “MTN Family & Friends is just perfect. This is because with MTN Family & Friends, a customer can make calls at 20 k per second only to six (6) registered numbers including one international number and one number from another network.” He added that a customer can still enjoy free midnight calls to all MTN numbers. No hidden charges or access fees of any sort.” “It is an offer of truevalue! It means instant connections to your loved ones and call rates that are first-of-a-kind, never-done-before in the history of telecommunications in Nigeria. From absolutely free calls to and from your loved one on-net, to the lowest first minute call rates, you will once again receive from MTN, the value you deserve – transparent rates without hidden charges or access fees,” highly elated Farroukh beamed. He said that since 2001 , MTN has been committed to offering “true value, the kind that enriches your life in tangible ways, the kind that continues to inspire us to set the pace in Nigerian telecommunications as we have done for 10 years now.” General Manager, Consumer Marketing, Mr. Kola Oyeyemi; and Chief Marketing Officer, Mr. Nigeria at the launch of MTN’s new Value Proposition in Lagos on Thursday, 20 January, 2011.
