The Chief Executive Officer of the National Communications Authority (NCA) Joe Anokye has announced that the MTN Zone bundle will soon be back.

This was after telecom operator MTN submitted a revised data zone bundle which meets the regulatory requirement, Mr Anokye said.

Data Zone bundle is an innovation by MTN Ghana that gives customers a 1-day validity bundle at discounted rates at the point of purchase.

MTN Ghana in a press release on Wednesday, April 12 announced the suspension of its innovative data bundle to its customers which took effect on April 5.

The mobile network in the statement said, “The suspension of the innovative Data Zone bundle is due to a review of the bundle offer in line with the Significant Market Power (SMP) directives applied to MTN Ghana in June 2020, not to be the lowest priced on any offer in the industry.”

It, however, apologised to its “cherished customers for limiting our communications on this matter to service activation channels only.

The company added, “we seek alignment on a revised Data Zone bundle to be reinstated as soon as possible.”

To this end, Mr Anokye who was speaking at a press briefing in Accra on Wednesday, April 26, disclosed that the Scancom PLC has amended their data zone bundle.

“MTN has since submitted a revised data zone bundle which has been approved by the authority. “It is our expectation that the product will soon be available.”
