The new offering from MTN will allow travellers to load bundled offers for voice, SMS and data that allow them to access the same communication services abroad just as they did when at home in Uganda.
MTN Uganda has international roaming agreements with over 287 GSM operators In 134 countries. Customers can take their MTN number when they travel abroad and keep connected to contacts both at home in Uganda and the rest of the world.
“Our customers travelling overseas did not have international data roaming bundles for voice, SMS and data which forced them to use alternative service providers in the diaspora. The process of getting a new sim card or looking for an internet connection was a tedious one. With the launch of this new innovative international roaming bundle, we believe this offer will provide uninterrupted communication access regardless of where they travel to” said MTN Uganda’s Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Olivier Prentout.
In addition, the MTN Uganda CMO noted that when traveling overseas, the international data roaming bundles will offer a great way to reduce communication costs by enabling one to have their mobile phone active (voice, data, text).
“By using the international roaming bundles, one is able to stay in touch with friends and family while overseas, and also means that you won’t miss important calls from clients as they can still reach you on your known mobile phone number while also accessing internet services as it were when in Uganda. This means one doesn’t have to purchase a new sim card and internet services” said MTN Uganda’s Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Olivier Prentout.
