The idea that cutthroat competition between business giants usually results in huge gains for consumers has never seemed truer. At a time of abundant sweeteners offered by telecom companies, market leader MTN Uganda has launched a promotion it says will give out Shs 10bn worth of bonus airtime over three months. In a statement, MTN said the benefits would apply to Per second, Per Minute, MTN zone and Hybrid customers who recharge with airtime.
Chief Marketing Officer Ernst Fonternel said participating customers would have a guaranteed airtime surprise bonus ranging from 5% to 125%.
"We have named this promotion "ASANTE SANA" (Literally meaning thank you very much), for customer loyalty and support for the last fifteen years of MTN's operation in Uganda," Fonternel said.
