Today, we are going to take a look at all the cheap call tariff plans recently introduced by MTN Nigeria so you can pick the one that’s going to serve your needs.
As mobile telecommunication giants in the country tries to woo more customers to their side, MTN Nigeria has introduced the MTN Trutalk+ call tariff plan that allows one make calls at cheaper rates.
