MTN’s launched a time-based music streaming service called, duh, MusicTime

Mobile network MTN recently bought music streaming Simfy Africa. Now it’s using its new acquisition to launch a novel take on a streaming service — which it’s calling a ‘world first’ called MusicTime. As the name suggests, the service lets users buy streaming access by time. MTN subscribers can buy 120 minutes of access to the service for R5 or 300 minutes for R10 ...[Read More]

FNB Connect expands network coverage thanks to roaming agreement

Earlier this year, Cell C entered into an agreement with MTN to expand its network coverage in areas where one bar just isn’t good enough. People still talk about bars and phones without using the words “I left my phone in a bar”, right? Because of this deal, FNB Connect customers will also gain more network coverage. FNB Connect is an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) that piggyb...[Read More]

South Africa is the real winner with the MTN Business App of the Year Awards

The MTN Business App of the Year Awards is a chance for enterprising app developers to gain recognition and reward for their work but as important as it may be for the devs – who do a fantastic job year after year – it’s the folks who don’t really do much in the initial stages who get the most benefit. Previous winners include Shyft, Domestly, Wumdrop, and Live Inspect – all services that have gon...[Read More]

MTN is offering users free call minutes. Hope your friends are all on MTN

Not even a month after MTN halted free Twitter on the network, they’ve decided to become charitable again by giving their users free call minutes. Maybe we need to start calling people again rather than tweeting at them? Yeah, not gonna happen. There are conditions, though — the call minutes are only valid to other MTN network users (which may be few and far between these days), and you’d ha...[Read More]

MTN launches their fibre service called Süpersonic

If your neighbourhood has been blessed by the fibre gods, chances are you’ve got a fibre connection or are thinking about getting one. And while the selection of ISPs is growing by the day, you might be more interested in a network you already know, which is why MTN launched their own fibre service, Süpersonic (yip, with an umlaut, nope, we don’t know why, either). Süpersonic is MTN’s ...[Read More]

MTN demonstrates the possibilities of 5G with a drifting car

MTN gave a nail-biting demonstration at the Gerotek race track yesterday of the possibilities of 5G in the real world. In case you haven’t been paying attention, 5G is the next evolution in mobile data. We had 2G, then 3G, then 4G/LTE (though this one was a bit contentious, with the two becoming synonymous, even though LTE didn’t necessarily achieve textbook 4G speeds) and now we have ...[Read More]

The best (and worst) prepaid data prices in SA

Data remains a hot topic in South Africa. Pressure from consumers and the #datamustfall movement recently prompted regulator Icasa to abolish data expiry, which will mean that once you buy data its yours to use. No non-sensical expiring, vanishing or other skullduggery. But, if you’re planning on changing service providers or getting a new contract, a bit of research is key to getting the be...[Read More]

Data won’t fall yet, but at least it won’t expire

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) has finally made a decision on the future of data for mobile users, and it is definitely looking up. The new regulations state that mobile data shouldn’t expire. Initially, the regulator’s draft regulation of data bundles proposed that data should expire in a tier-system depending on how much data was bought. For example:...[Read More]
