South Africa’s telecoms provider MTN has introduced MoMo social bundles, at some of the lowest-ever social media data bundle prices offered by MTN in South Africa. Additionally, MTN is waiving MoMo cash in service fees.
The launch of MoMo social bundles will see MTN customers use their positive MoMo cash balance to buy any of the five new bundles offered to suit their unique usage needs and budget.
Under the new MoMo social bundles, users will R8 and get credited with 500MB to access their favourite social media platforms. This bundle is valid for 24 hours. For R15, MoMo users will have access to 1GB, which will be valid for 3 days. Moderate users can opt for a 5GB social bundle costing R60, with a seven-day validity period. R120 will give heavy users 10GB to access social bundles – this option is valid for 30 days.
MoMo customers will be able to use these bundles for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp and YouTube. Data used to access other platforms will be drawn from the user’s other available data.
“The introduction of these social bundles is a game changer as these are the most competitive social media data deals ever introduced by MTN,” said Felix Kamenga, chief officer, MTN South Africa Mobile Financial Services. We believed that it was necessary to look to solutions to help South Africans during a time when many are uncertain about the future resulting from the unprecedented economic disruptions caused by COVID-19.”
Kamenga said in the coming weeks, we will continue to build more value-added functionalities into MoMo and will keep our customers updated on these developments. “A key consideration for the coming add-ons remains ensuring that the solutions we design continue driving financial inclusivity and digital transformation, and that we find cost-effective ways for our customers to manage their money during these challenging times,” he added.
