Ghana’s largest telecommunication giant, MTN, has rewarded a total 28 customers with 4G Y5 handsets, Samsung S8 smartphones, IPhone 8, cash prizes, and Hyundai cars in the first five planned edition of the ongoing ‘4G Taking Over Promo’.

The MTN ‘4G Taking Over Promo’ is a five-month promotion which started in January 2018 and will end in May 2018.

Addressing the media, Senior Specialist at the Consumer Segment of MTN, Maxwell Arthur said the promotion was to appreciate loyal MTN customers who use the 4G network.

He explained that winners were selected based on how often they use their airtime to call, text, browse as well as their constant MTN mobile money transactions.

“The MTN 4G Taking Over promotion is simply a usage based promotion where customers accrue points based on all network usage. So every pesewa a customer spends on the network, MTN rewards you with a point. There is no need for any subscription,” he explained.
