The promotion was launched in an effort by MTN to help its clients reduce the need to have multiple SIM cards to access affordable voice call and SMS rates across all networks.

At a press briefing of the launch MTN Zambia CEO Charles Molapisi said, “The culture of multiple SIM cards must come to an end. Our understanding is that most customers maintain multiple SIM cards because they are looking for the most affordable rates depending on what network they are calling. However, you will agree that this is inconveniencing and costly as the customers have to recharge more than one account in search of this affordability.” 

Do you agree, and do you like the prices so far?
