Business & Finance Review of data prices not as a result of regulatory, govt intervention – MTN clarifies
JAN 12, 2022 LISTEN

Ghana’s leading Telecommunications Company, MTN has indicated that the recent review of data prices for Fibre Broadband and TurboNet devices has nothing to do with regulatory or government interventions.

MTN Ghana early this month announced an increase in date prices for its Fixed Broadband services.

Subsequently, there have been reports that the company took the decision based on some government interventions.

In a statement issued by MTN Ghana dated Wednesday, January 12, 2022, it says the information going round is false.

“..we would like to state categorically, that these data price reviews were a business decision and not as a result of a regulatory or Government intervention.

“Secondly, over the past few years, MTN Ghana decided, as part of its support through the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, to maintain promotional prices on some of its Fixed Broadband products for an extended period,” part of the statement reads.

It further explains, “The recent price review was therefore driven by the need for the company to ensure sustained investment required to provide continuous quality experience to more customers by aligning prices to reflect prevailing market rates.”

In the wake of the upward review of data prices for its Fixed Broadband services, MTN Ghana maintains that customers will enjoy a 50% bonus on every fixed broadband purchase for the next 3 months.
