MTN zero rates access to online curriculum for university students


MTN revealed, in a media statement, that it has zero rated access to university online content. This will allow South Africa’s university students to access their online curriculum without incurring data costs.

MTN further revealed that it will allow university students free access to university websites in order to access online content. To date, students from the University of Cape Town (UCT) and University of Pretoria have already benefited from this initiative. MTN is appealing to other institutions of higher learning to tap into this initiative by providing their URL addresses to the company.

“As a responsible corporate citizen, MTN took the decision to provide free access to online educational content in order to complement existing classroom training, leverage the benefits of online training and assist the students and academic institutions to salvage the 2016 academic year. As MTN, we are mindful of the backlog that students and academic institutions are facing, and we believe that this gesture will help to maintain continuity and expedite access to much-needed educational content,” said Mteto Nyati, Chief Executive Officer: MTN South Africa.
