Subscribers are encouraged to meet or exceed monthly usage targets and those with the highest points per target set, get the opportunity to win any of the prizes at stake each month. Subscribers who reach their set targets will receive airtime bonus.
Mr. Rahul De, Chief Marketing Officer of MTN, noted that MTN recognizes that football is a passion for most of the company’s subscribers, and as a build up to the world’s football season MTN is taking the opportunity to excite its subscriber’s through the “MTN Go Rio” promotion.
