MTN, BusyInternet enter deal to meet subscribers’ Internet needs
The leading mobile services provider in Ghana, MTN has signed a deal with the country’s and West Africa’s largest Internet service provider, BusyInternet to enable MTN subscribers to browse the Internet at all BusyInternet cafés.
In a press release copied to ghanabusinessnews.com, Monday August 2, 2010, MTN says the partnership will make it possible for its subscribers to access and browse the Internet with ease and comfort.
By the terms of the deal, it is now possible for MTN subscribers to pay for internet browsing at BusyInternet centers using airtime credit on their mobile handsets.
The release also said MTN customers who do not want to buy the BusyInternet vouchers or who have no ready cash to pay at any of the BusyInternet centers can easily enter their MTN mobile number, e-self Care password and select a preferred bucket ranging from GH¢2.5 to GH¢10. The cost for the browsing is deducted straight from their MTN airtime account to their BusyInternet account. Additionally, any outstanding credits for browsing can be used by the subscriber at any later point in time.
Customers using their own Laptops/Netbook/Notebooks or any Wi-Fi handsets can latch on to the Wi-Fi service at these centers and browse the internet.
Even though Busy Internet does not have a center at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), travelers can now use the MTN Wi-Fi service powered by Busy Internet at the Airport.
The service is available in all four BusyInternet centers in Accra; Ring Road Central, Accra Mall, Kotoka International Airport & Tema Community 6.
