MTN Nigeria has done it again, bringing out one of the cheapest call rates ever, called MTN TruTalk and MTN TruTalk+.
However, one thing is sure, unlike the other MTN tariff plan,MTN Zone, the newly introduced MTN TruTalk offers their subscribers flat call rate from the very first second.
Please take note that the call rate is totally dependent on the network which the subscriber called, as there are different charges for on-net and off-net calls made to different networks.
