Heard of MTN Pulse? Now might be a good time to look it up, especially if you’re mostly on the phone to other MTN users. MTN announced this morning a new call rate for pre-paid Pulse users which will give them very reduced charges every day but there are a few terms and conditions attached.
To start with, MTN’s Pulse is targeted at the youth market. So far, so good. It’s also restricted to pre-paid accounts and it’s only effective if one MTN Pulse users is calling another.
There are benefits to getting your friends and family on this call plan if they’re on MTN though. The initial call for a day will, on MTN’s new setup, cost 79 cents for the first minute. After that, “…a 29c/min rate applies for the rest of the day for all MTN Pulse to MTN Pulse calls.”
If you’re calling an MTN number that isn’t part of Pulse, calls will send users back 79c per minute. Not an MTN number? R1.20 per minute.
Current MTN pre-paid users can join Pulse by dialling *141*4*6# on their phones.
