Yesterday, in response to an enquiry on twitter, I mentioned that MTN Nigeria was indeed planning to introduce lower BlackBerry internet service (BIS) tariffs.
The official announcement
still hasn’t has now been made, and here are the new plans:
BIS Complete monthly
Gives you access to one 1 email account on your device, one web-based emailin addition to all other standard BIS services for 1 month. Data cap: 200mb. Cost: N1,500.
Text “BBC” to 21600 to activate.
BIS Complete weekly
Gives you access to one 1 email account on your device, in addition to all other standard BIS services for 1 week. Data cap: 50mb. Cost: N500.
