Of late many smartphone users across the country have complained about airtime and mobile data disappearing from their accounts, despite not accessing the Internet or apps. Mobile network MTN has come forth promising its users that they will fix the disappearing airtime problem.
Although MTN says its was not aware that other mobile networks were charging zero-rating LTE, consumers cry all the time that data in South Africa is ridiculously expensive. It has been found out by MyBroadband that MTN charges LTE tariff fees, even with your mobile data option switched off. The good news is that MTN acknowledged that the data depletion was genuine.
MTN users will be happy to note that the mobile network will adjust tariffs and align their data charging in LTE with their competitors, a plan that will be implemented within the next 30 days,” said MTN. Due to high data prices the public in the past, has gone to social media generating hashtags such as #DataMustFall, #VodacomIsTrash and #MTNisTrash.
