MTN Uganda launches new Data & Voice bundles! The competition got to them!


Loyalists to the telecom with the most sim cards (arguably MTN Uganda) have been missing out of lots of data and call bundles that the recently purchased Warid Telecom now Airtel, customers have been enjoying.

MTN decided the slowly push out new data and voice bundles that mimick those airtel customers are enjoying at low prices. Some promotions even have the same names as their competitors. These include MTN Voice, MTN social and MTN Night shift.

Mtn launches new Go Bundles with Voice, Data, SMS and Social bundles

MTN Voice
Call this MTN Uganda’s version of pakalast, it enables users buy 15 minutes Daily or 150 minutes Weekly and 1000 minutes worth of MTN to MTN calls for 1,000/-, 7,000/- and 30,000/- respectively. The monthly bundle is still less than Airtel’s corporate package that has 1,400 minutes. You might call this a copy but some customers are a bit happy. Did they really have to take that long.
You can activate this bundle buy dailing *160*2# Select the Voice bundles choose your package.

MTN Social
This one killed anyone who is a fan of the Samsung and Apple court woes. MTN copy pasted the internet social media bundles from Airtel and launched them on their network. You can buy a bundle of unlimited access to either WhatsApp, Twitter or Facebook at 200/- for the service you desire. Or you can buy the whole bundle for 500/- to enjoy unlimited access to WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook for 500/- a day. (Does WTF name seems familiar? …. Yes you are not alone).
We however some image upload and download trouble when using WhatsApp. Sometimes the images are sent but sometimes it just refuses. We got to their Twitter which said they media was not supported.

@boses8 Y’ello, please be advised WTF Social bundle doesnot associate or work with external links or media else normal data charges apply.

I recommend this bundle for those who think their MBs are fed to crocodiles.
Dial *150*6# and choose your bundle.

MTN Shift
This data bundle is MTN’s version of Airtel’s Night Pack which is an after midnight internet pack with 1 GB of internet. This bundle will cost you 2,500/- and probably you sleep. The speeds were however quite impressive compared to Airtel’s night pack. Dial *150*1* # to activate.

Now before I forget, these guys have SMS packs and I don’t need to convince anyone that Airtel was the king if these bundles.

MTN is a little late considering these bundle were the very reason some of its loyal customers ran wake a few years back. But its these bundles will definitely keep those currently using the network to enjoy it more.
