Following the price increase of MTN’s TurboNet router, a lot of Ghanaians have registered their displeasure on the increase.
JBKlutse.com followed conversations on social media and also engaged some stakeholders on how the increase has affected them.
Speaking to Damian, an IT Expert, he said, ‘Because of the nature of my work, I am always connected to the internet. Personally I went in for MTN’s TurboNet router because of its affordability. The price increase is a big jump and it will force me to seek for affordable but effective alternatives. I however console myself with their non-expiry data packages’.
Enock, a Network Technician reports: ‘A friend recommended MTN’s TurboNet to me and testified of its reliability, affordability and speed. And when I finally purchased one, I wasn’t disappointed. I was however not so happy when I heard this morning of the price increase. Basically, the increase will leave me no choice than to do my cost analysis with other ISPs’.
With an increase of almost sixty-eight percent, the TurboNet router which used to be sold for Gh¢ 300 cedis has been increased to Gh¢ 499. Below highlights the new prices of MTN’s TurboNet data;
