Overview of Key Features
MTN IPulse is a special tariff plan that now allows you enjoy a FLAT rate of 10 kobo per second for calls ACROSS ALL local Networks after the first minute of MTN-to-MTN calls and MTN-to-Other networks call at 42 kobo per second respectively. The new MTN IPulse tariff plan does not feature a daily or monthly subscription fee.
- 10kobo per second to all networks in Nigeria
- Rate applies after first call of the day at 42k/sec
- 10MB on N100 recharge or more. Valid for 7 days
- 1 month Free subscription to callertunez service and 5 (five) Free caller tunes to choose 1 (one). Valid for 30 days
Overview of Pros and Cons
- As far as I am concerned, there is hardly any difference between MTN SuperSaver and iPulse, except for the one month Free subscription to callertunez service and 5 (five) Free caller tunes to choose one (a substitute for SuperSaver’s one month Free subscription to Business Day and CNN news).
- Furthermore, the iPulse as it is, no longer holds any attraction, now that the free weekly data, formally exclusive to the MTN Pulse, is now common to all the other plans. So except for the free callertunez service and five caller tunes to choose (which is in real sense, just for 30 days), there is nothing really special about this plan. In fact, its inclusion as one of the plans is surplus to requirements.
- Again, the mandatory N100 minimum balance for a zero-charge Happy Hour calls is superfluous. I am of the opinion that Happy Hour calls should be free, with or without a N100 minimum balance, within the network, and a rate that is reasonably lower than 10kobo per second should be considered for Happy Hour calls outside the network.
