MTN Ghana Reviews Tariffs Upward
Scancom PLC (MTN Ghana) has announced an upward review of the tariffs of its products and services effective February 07, 2023.
The review is as result of two changes. Firstly, the implementation of the 2.5% statutory adjustment of VAT from 12.5% to 15% across all services. This will impact both Prepaid and Post-paid customers. Secondly, MTN Ghana is proceeding with a 15% average upward review of its mobile data tariffs which was originally announced in November 2022 and was subsequently put on hold. The increase in mobile data tariffs will impact both Pay Monthly and Pay-As-You-Go users. The review in mobile data bundle offers cover products available on the short codes 138 & 170, as well as on purchases through Electronic Voucher Distribution (EVD), MTN Pulse, and Data Zone except for XtraTime. The data tariff increases do not apply to Fiber Broadband and Fixed Wireless Access (4G Router / Turbonet) customers.
With this review, voice users will receive less airtime due to the VAT implementation, and mobile data customers will receive less data bundle allocations for the same price purchased before the tariff increase was made.
The Chief Commercial Officer for MTN, Mr. Noel Kojo-Ganson, explained the impact by giving an example of how the new pricing will work. He said, following the review, a three cedis airtime purchase before the VAT increase, which previously gave customers 24.4 minutes will now give customers 23.9 minutes, whilst a three cedis data bundle which previously gave customers 471 MBs will now give customers 401 MBs.
Explaining the reason for the upward review of the Data Bundle prices, Mr. Noel Kojo-Ganson said the review was necessitated by the recent economic shifts leading to increasing cost of operations largely due to continuous increase in inflation. “These economic shifts have impacted us directly and for us to ensure we have the right balance for sustaining growth and investments into the network, we have had to consider price increases in various segments of our business.”
Mr. Kojo-Ganson added, “MTN recognises that we are in very tough times and would like to assure our customers that we will continue to offer them the convenience and flexibility in the purchase of data bundles at their desired price points via the MTN Flexi and Non-Expiry Bundles. Also, customers will continue to enjoy the 50% bonus incentive on mobile data purchases via MyMTN App & MoMo (valid for 7 days) for 4G customers”.
MTN remains committed to investing USD1 Billion by 2025 to continue its network expansion and improve the network experience for customers. In line with our Ambition 2025 strategy, our purpose is to lead digital solutions for Africa’s progress.

How to Leverage Employee Experience to Drive Customer Experience Outcomes?
Employee experience is a key factor in determining customer experience outcomes. For companies to achieve optimal customer experience, they need to invest in their employees first. This can be done through employee motivation management or even an entire employee engagement software and other initiatives that create a positive work environment for employees. In this article, we will discuss how to leverage employee experience to drive customer experience outcomes.
Happy Employees Create Happy Customers
The idea behind this phrase is that employees who are satisfied at work are more likely to provide better customer service. When employees are happy, they are more motivated, productive, and engaged, which creates a better customer experience. When customers have a positive experience, they are more likely to return, and this, in turn, leads to increased customer loyalty and revenue. In short, when employees are happy, they tend to create an environment that encourages customers to come back and make repeat purchases.
Employee experience is about creating a positive work environment for employees. Companies should invest in creating a workplace culture that is engaging, supportive, and rewarding. This can be done by creating a clear job structure and career progression, offering competitive salaries and benefits, and providing training and development opportunities. Companies should also provide their employees with the necessary tools, resources, and support to be successful.
5 Ways to Improve Customer Experience through Employee Experience
- Encourage a Positive Workplace Culture: Creating a positive work environment is key to providing employees with a great experience. This can include fostering an atmosphere of respect, open communication, and mutual trust. Employees who feel valued and appreciated are more likely to go the extra mile for customers.
- Offer Career Development Opportunities: Investing in employees’ career growth, such as through training and development programmes, can give them the skills and confidence to better serve customers.
- Reward Employees for Good Performance: Rewarding employees for a job well done can help to create a culture of recognition and appreciation. This can help to boost morale and motivate employees to maintain high standards of customer service.
- Support Employees’ Health and Well-being: Creating a healthy and safe work environment, providing access to mental health resources and offering flexible working arrangements can help to improve employee well-being. This can lead to a more engaged and productive workforce.
- Listen to Employees’ Feedback: Gathering employee feedback is essential for understanding their needs and the issues they are facing. Listening to employees’ ideas and suggestions can help to identify areas where customer experience can be improved.
How Can Employee Motivation Management Help?
Employee motivation management is an essential component of employee experience. It involves creating an environment that encourages employees to work hard and achieve their goals. This can be done through incentives, recognition, and other employee engagement initiatives. Companies should also ensure that their rewards and recognition programmes are tailored to the needs of their employees.
Nowadays, leading companies use employee engagement software to measure and track employee motivation. Such software can provide valuable insights into how employees are feeling at different stages of their employee lifecycle and what they need to be successful. Companies should use this data to create meaningful employee engagement initiatives that can help to boost employee motivation, performance, and a customer-oriented mindset.
Employee experience is key when you want to see positive customer experience outcomes. Companies should invest in employee motivation management and ideally use advanced employee engagement software to create a positive work environment for their employees and measure their engagement. This can help drive improvement in customer experience by increasing employee motivation and performance.
