Airtel BOONA vs MTN Voice: Comparision of the All-Network Voice Bundles in Uganda

Voice bundles are still a big deal in Uganda. While the country has witnessed remarkable growth in internet adoption, the importance of voice communication cannot be underestimated. From high data costs to voice calls being more reliable, there are numerous reasons why voice calls are still dominating the telecommunications landscape.

Both MTN and Airtel Uganda offer all-network voice bundles. In this article, we’ll compare the MTN Daily Voice Bundle and the Airtel BOONA Bundles to help you find the best option for your needs.

These voice bundles allow users to make calls to any phone network in Uganda, regardless of which SIM card they have. This is a valuable package for people who need to make calls to friends and family who are on different networks.

Understanding MTN Voice Bundle

MTN Uganda has options for all network voice calls among its daily voice bundle packages. This package offers a specified number of minutes for calls across all networks, ensuring uninterrupted conversations.

There are four available options for customers to choose from. i.e. the 6 minutes,10, 25, and 70 minutes options at a price of 500UGX, 700UGX, 1000UGX, and 2000UGX respectively.

The bundle’s validity is 24 hours and that has been my problem with MTN Uganda. It appears that they haven’t given enough attention to voice call services. According to the market performance report from UCC, the final quarter of last year saw a growth in voice call traffic, reaching 17.1 billion minutes. This should be enough for them to give us more and better options as customers like the competition.

To buy the MTN voice bundles, daily *160*21# to activate the bundles.

Exploring Airtel BOONA

Airtel on the other hand has an Airtel BOONA package. Designed to offer users all-network call minutes, BOONA has daily, weekly, monthly, and chillax bundles that don’t expire for their voice bundles. This provides an alternative for those seeking competitive rates and extended validity.

To buy Airtel BOONA voice bundles, Dial *100*1# using your Airtel number. Choose option 1, Voice Bundles, and Select option 6, BOONA (Airtel/MTN). These are the available BOONA packages and their prices:

Comparison of Airtel BOONA and MTN Voice Bundles

Comparing these two voice bundles is crucial for making an informed choice. The pricing of the MTN Voice Bundle and Airtel BOONA can significantly impact budget-conscious users. Additionally, the allocation of call minutes and the validity period play a crucial role in determining the most suitable option.

Users must also consider the network coverage and call quality provided by each provider, as these factors contribute to a satisfactory communication experience. From experience, the Airtel Uganda network seems stable and available even in upcountry locations compared to MTN. The last time I was in the village, the only network I could use was Airtel, and came in handy when trying to make voice calls.
