With this new product, MTN is delighted to save its customers in the following ways;
  • Travelling long distances and queuing for long periods when paying the bills. You can now pay using your mobile phone even while at your office desk or while in the comfort of your home.

  • Customers who keep a float/ balance on their Mobile Money account will be saved from electricity disconnection during emergency in case of delayed bill payment.

    • SCENARIO I: An Umeme agent arrives at your home to effect a disconnection order. The MTN     customer simply pays the bill off their phone in front of the agent, and the matter is         sorted there and then.
    • SCENARIO II: A maid calls from home, the customer at the comfort of their workplace will     simply pay off the bill using part of his available Mobile money float and will then call the     Umeme     service center to advice the disconnecting agent to leave.
  • Affordability: The cost of paying by MTN Mobile Money is in most cases substantially cheaper than travelling to an Umeme center or paying 2,000 as bank charges even after incurring some moderate travel cost to the nearest bank.
