This enables customers with 4G enabled devices to make voice calls and use mobile data on the 4G LTE network.
This latest development allows customers to maintain a full 4G experience during a call. This means voice and data stay on the same part of the network, therefore giving consistently high surfing speeds, even while making phone calls.
With this launch, officials said, MTN was taking another step in the evolution of its services, addressing the current and future needs of its customers.
“We at MTN aim to provide our customers with the best possible user experience by adapting new technologies such as the introduction of 4G LTE on mobile devices,” MTN Rwanda Chief Executive Officer, Gunter Engling, said.
To enjoy the 4G experience, existing MTN subscribers will have to upgrade their SIM cards to a 4G SIM card for only 1 000Rwf and get a 4G-capable device, all of which are available at any MTN Service Centre across the country.
Once connected to the 4G network, customers will dial *345# and select the 4G bundle to purchase a daily, weekly or monthly pack.
“The introduction of 4G LTE is an additional value to our data offerings and gives customers the option to browse on the 2G, 3G, 3.75G and now 4G network, based on their lifestyle. We would like to ensure consistently reliable services for all existing customers and also enable many more of our subscribers to enjoy 4G mobile technology,” Engling added.
