India Reaches Agreement With MTN Over Data Prices

 |  April 30, 2020

The Competition Commission of India has reached an agreement with MTN regarding the reduction of its data prices.

The agreement includes the reduction of the pricing of 30-day prepaid bundles of up to 1GB of data, which will now cost R99 (US$1.31).

According to the agreement, these new prices must be implemented as of May 1, although MTN already implemented these changes earlier this month.

The agreement follows the publication of the final report of the Data Services Market Inquiry in December last year.

The Commission implemented the inquiry to investigate factors or features of the market that have historically led to what it labels as “high prices for data services.”
