Mtn Has Increased Xtratime Interest Rate, New Terms And Conditions

I think the current recession that the country is battling with at the moment has finally hit MTN and they have decided to take out the anger on their customers. Mtn has made some adjustments to the terms and conditions of the Mtn xtratime.
One of the most noticeable modifications to the Mtn xtratime terms and conditions is the fact that Mtn has increased the xtratime interest rate from the usual 10% to 15% which means anytime you borrow airtime from Mtn, you will be charged 15% interest instead of the usual 10%. For instance, if you borrow N1000 airtime from Mtn, you will have to pay back N115 instead of N110.

You can check out the Full terms and conditions below

    1. I think your contribution matters and I really appreciate your honest criticism...

      The reason why I had to change the simple mobile view to this responsive one is because I want it to be more easier for you guys to navigate the blog on your mobile device....

      NOTE that am still testing the template and I will surely work on it soon...
