These new plans are entirely wireless. “They will connect to either fixed-LTE or 5G,” an MTN spokesman told TechCentral. “To connect to 5G, the consumer must have a 5G home router within 5G coverage. If a subscriber does not have 5G coverage, the plan will revert to the fixed-LTE network.”
The new tariff options are as follows:
- “Starter” plan with 10Mbit/s for R249/month (drops to 2Mbit/s after 100GB);
- “Pro” plan, 20Mbit/s, costs R399 per month and drops to 5Mbit/s after 300GB;
- The “Premium” 35Mbit/s plan costs R499 monthly and drops to 10Mbit/s after 500GB.
- The “Ultra” plan with 60Mbit/s speeds costs R699 monthly and drops to 10Mbit/s after 800GB.
- “Unlimited” plan with best-effort speed: R999/month (rate drops to 15Mbit/s after 1.5TB).
The MyMTN Home Internet Starter, Pro, Premium, Ultra, and Infinite plans are all monthly, so you’ll have to pay each month and can cancel anytime. You also get a free router; the company said in a news release this week.
