CAPE TOWN - Telecommunications giant, MTN announced that consumers will receive double airtime value with the new MTN 100% BONUS Starter Pack. 

This comes after the mobile operator announced their Prepaid Portfolio revamp. MTN stated earlier this month that it has put a roadmap in place in order to deal with the overhaul of prepaid products. 

The overhaul has already seen adjustments to the data portfolio bundle. MTN is now offering a 100% BONUS Starter Pack. When customers recharge, they will receive 100% bonus airtime. The starter pack is available to all prepaid customers. Customers will also receive free minutes which they can use for all networks and to surf the net. According to MTN, the bonus starter pack promotion expires in 6 months.
