Local cell service provider MTN has just launched its WOW Voice Bundles which promises more calling for your rands, albeit with many caveats to keep in mind.

Firstly, they only apply to PayAsYouGo customers and exclude those on the Pay Per Second plan.

Secondly, the bundles are only applicable for MTN to MTN calls, so you won’t be getting any of the benefits if the people you need to call are on other networks.

You can see the various bundles on offer below, which also expire after a set amount of time, so try and remember those when making a purchase.

If all those conditions seem fine to you, you can buy the bundles by dialling *141*2*1#.

Update: Due to an error in a press release, the validity periods of the first four bundles were incorrectly stated as expiring at midnight. Their actual validity period is 24 hours, and that has been reflected below.
