MTN will offer customers a choice of free 30 minutes MTN-to-MTN airtime or free 20MB of data. Customers will have the freedom to select their preferred option via short code. The Company states it is currently in the process of setting up the short codes that customers will use to make their selection and will announce the short code numbers as soon as set up is complete.
Customers will be able to select and activate their choice of free airtime or data from 17th December till 11:59PM on 23rd December, 2016. Once the selection is made the package will be activated immediately and the customer will have 24 hours within which to use the package.
Mrs Cynthia Lumor, Corporate Services Executive, said “we are aware the disruption inconvenienced our valued subscribers, and we regret that. Although this was something that was beyond our control and not anticipated we believe it is important to offer free airtime or data as a token of our appreciation to our customers for the patience they exercised as we worked to resolve the problem.”
Mohammed Rufai, Chief Technical Officer, MTN Ghana also assured customers that MTN has stringent measures in place to curb the recurrence of the incident.
“Our critical core network elements have redundancy, meaning we have at least two of each critical core network element. We have invested significantly to make sure that there is always a spare critical element to carry traffic in the unlikely event of a network failure,” he stated
MTN remains committed to providing reliable services to its cherished customers.
