MTN is set to increase call, data charges starting from May 1st.
Telecom giant MTN Ghana says it is reviewing its call and data tariffs higher starting from Saturday, May 1, 2021.
MTN says the move is to make space for the 1% increase in National Health Insurance Levy by the government.
Government introduced the increased tax as part of measures to get back lost revenues as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.
“Scancom PLC (MTN Ghana) wishes to inform you that following the introduction of the COVID-19 Health Recovery Levy, which has resulted in a 1% increase in the National Health Insurance Levy, talk time and data charges have been adjusted to reflect the tax change.
“This takes effect from 1st May 2021,” MTN said.
