While the MTN TrueTalk+ plan lasted, it was the cheapest tariff plan MTN had to offer. I mean, after a daily access fee of N5 has been charged (which is triggered by the first call of the day), subscribers get to make calls through the day at a flat rate of 11kobo/sec.
This plan made calls much more affordable on the MTN network until the telecommunication decided to discontinue the plan and automatically switched all trutalk+ subscribers to trutalk plan which is a rather expensive plan compared to the former.
…MTN SmoothTalk Plus To The Rescue
Doing a little research, I’ve come to realize that the MTN SmoothTalk plus plan may be the best alternative to the ‘gone-too-soon’ trutalk plan (I stand to be corrected though).
The MTN SmoothTalk plus plan attracts a higher charge for the first one minute call of the day while subsequent calls are charged at a much lower flat rate. The first one (1) minute call of the day on the SmoothTalk Plus plan is charged at 40kobo/sec while subsequent calls are charged at 15 kobo/sec.
An additional benefit is that subscribers get free 10MB on a N100+ recharge done within 7 days and the free data is valid for 7 days. You also get notified of the tariff charge at the end of every outgoing call or sent text message(s).
