Standard Bank and MTN South Africa join forces to Launch enhanced Mobile Services

Standard Bank has announced a new Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) collaboration with MTN, the country’s best network, giving its South African customers access to the mobile operator’s extensive coverage across the country.

As part of the bank’s telecommunication strategic direction, Standard Bank Mobile will now be called Standard Bank Connect and will introduce a new set of data and voice packages. “We are excited to collaborate with MTN and the opportunity to provide our customers with a range of newly differentiated mobile plans. The transition will be gradual, where we invite our customers to join us on our pilot program, helping us to build meaningful services together and experiencing Standard Bank on MTN’s wide network,” Kartik Mistry, Executive Head of Standard Bank MVNO, said.

Standard Bank introduced its MVNO offering in 2018 and has over 300,000 mobile customers, who have derived immense value from the offering, with bank fees offered back in Airtime based on the products and services customers have with the bank.

“Consistently voted SA’s Best Network, MTN is delighted to partner with Standard Bank, a trusted brand in South Africa and across the African continent. Our aim is to create shared value by placing our partners at the centre of all we do whilst for fulfilling our vision that everyone deserves the benefits of a modern, connected life. To this end we are committed to providing a proven, quality digital network and affordable mobile and network solutions,” Quintus de Beer, Chief Wholesale Officer, from MTN South Africa said.

To build on its play to connect communities, Standard Bank offers two main types of connectivity packages: the Connected Circle and the Connected Gigs Plans. The Connected Circle Plans cater to customers seeking both voice and data connectivity with options like Connected Circle Starter, Lite, Plus and Pro. These plans provide access to unlimited calls to selected numbers within one’s community and include inclusive data, promoting flexibility and changing the way we connect.

For data-centric customers, the Connected Gigs Plans offer high-value data bundles at competitive prices. Customers can also purchase airtime bundles for voice and SMS usage on these plans.

In another first, to offer customers more value, qualifying Connected Circle and Connected Gigs plans also include monthly discounts on tech accessories of up-to 50% with Standard Bank’s partnership with Dress Your Tech.
