MTN Uganda recently launched their on network voice bundles allowing customers purchase daily, weekly and monthly minutes for MTN to MTN calls.
This follows the multiple bundles the competition has been offering. Africell formerly Orange still offers Super Combo giving you a combination of voice, SMS and data across all networks. Airtel has a similar package.
MTN decided to offer call bundles within the network and none to other networks.
The Daily bundle gives one 6/15 MTN to MTN minutes for Ugx 500 and Ugx 1,000 respectively. Daily bundles expire at midnight if not used.
For 500 shilling bundle, one would be paying 83.3 shillings per minute while for the 1000 shilling bundle one would actually spend 66.6 shillings per minute.
The weekly bundle offers 150 minutes for Ugx 7,000 and when you do the math, you are actually paying 46.6 shillings per minute.
The monthly bundle offers 1,000 minutes for Ugx 30,000. When we calculate the cost per minute for the monthly bundle, we came to 30 shillings per minute.
