MTN Nigeria has launched a surprise package for their roaming customers by announcing free roaming charges on incoming calls and SMS to fifteen countries. Customers will not be charged for SMS and calls received when they will be visiting these locations.
MTN has decided to offer free incoming calls and messages to their customers while they are on roaming service in 15 different nations i.e. United Kingdom, United States, Germany, Canada, Italy, France, Belgium, Malaysia, Netherlands, Spain, South Africa, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Kenya and Ghana.
Coming to the plan details proper, any customer of MTN Nigeria who wants to avail this free roaming service has to either recharge their number by a minimum of NGN 2000 cumulatively or as a single recharge in the same calendar month of travel or to spend NGN 2000 in the month prior to his or her travel. The offer is available for subscribers having prepaid, postpaid and e-postpaid connections.
While on roaming, subscribers will make phone calls at a rate of NGN 60 per minute. Even though this is a new offer, MTN notes that to avail this plan, users don’t have to opt in as their SIM will automatically redirect them to the plan in roaming situation when they meet all the required conditions.
