In celebration of 10 years of operations in the Nigerian market, MTN Nigeria has crashed call rates to as low as 17k/sec.
The new rates are not applicable to all calls but to special niches on MTN’s different plans.
Applicable to On-net calls only, but from the 5th minute. Rates start from 58k/sec for the first minute, and 20k/sec for the second minute.
To migrate, text 408 to 131 or dial *408#.

Calls to 8 MTN numbers on this plan are available at 17k/sec. One Off-net and one international call are at 20k/sec. All other local calls are at 50k/sec.
To migrate, text 407 to 131 or dial *407#.
MTN Funlink Reloaded
For a daily access charge of N25, subscribers to this plan get daytime call rates “as low as 17k/sec” (I’m not sure exactly what that implies).
To migrate, text 406 to 131 or dial *406#.
Even with this new introduction, MTN still have the highest call tariffs in the industry. I do not think that there is anything compelling in the new features to make non-MTN users to crossover.
This seems to be nmothing more than a token placation to subscribers on the MTN network.
