MTN Ghana has introduced Roam Like Home, a new roaming tariff that allows subscribers to enjoy local rates on Voice, Data and SMS while travelling in any of the remaining 21 countries in which MTN operates.
”Roam Like Home” is the latest in the portfolio of tariff offered by MTN Ghana to deliver more value to subscribers. The service requires MTN Ghana subscribers to select the MTN network while roaming.
The countries include: Nigeria, Benin, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Republic, Liberia, Republic of Congo (Congo-Brazzaville), Afghanistan, Iran, Cyprus Rwanda, Botswana, South Africa, Sudan, South Sudan, Swaziland, Syria, Uganda, Yemen and Zambia.
Commenting on the new roaming offer, the Acting Chief Marketing Officer of MTN Ghana, Noel Ganson, said, “The ‘Roam Like Home’ offer is a bonus tariff introduced to enable our valued subscribers stay connected longer with their friends, family and business associate while traveling outside Ghana”.
He further explained that, an MTN Ghana subscriber, who is charged locally per minute for on-net calls in Ghana, will pay the same rate when roaming in South Africa, Nigeria or any of the 21 countries.
“The good news is that customers no longer have to go through the struggle of purchasing new SIM cards from the countries they visit in order to enjoy reduced tariffs, just maintain your MTN Ghana number and enjoy local rates in a foreign land” he added.
MTN continues to deliver value to subscribers, through digitized innovation and creativity. This is in line with the company’s mission, ”to make the lives of our customers a whole lot brighter.”
MTN also recently introduced a Global Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) service to facilitate business between Ghana’s rapidly expanding market and the rest of the world.
