Pink is the new Red at MTC and what better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with the Limited Edition Pink Samsung Star, and exciting prizes that could see some lucky customers winning.

This year, MTC will reinvent Valentine's Day, with pink as the theme colour, replacing the customary red. Customers need only purchase the Limited Edition Pink Samsung Star for N$1 599 at any MTC Mobile Home countrywide on 12 February 2010 to stand a chance of winning one of the grand prizes on offer.

Not only is the Pink Samsung Star available at a low price, but upon purchase customers are automatically entered into a lucky draw in which they stand a chance to win one of the following mouth-watering prizes:

1. Limousine trip to mountain restaurant, dinner and one night accommodation for two.
2. Hot air balloon trip and champagne breakfast for two at Sossusvlei.
3. Easter weekend trip for two to Cape Town Jazz Festival.
4. Chocolate bouquet with MTC gift voucher.

Says MTC, GM Corporate Affairs, Albertus Aochamub: “At MTC, we mean business when we say we jealously protect the interests of our customers. Our customers are the oil that keeps us going and we appreciate that they need to be rewarded for making us the best and leading operator in Namibia. We would not let Valentine's Day slip away unnoticed, hence our treat to them in the form of these magnificent prizes.”

To show its commitment to provide affordable, quality telecommunications services and to stimulate communication needs, MTC has recently also introduced the free weekend special, where Tango customers are able to call all weekend for free, subject to recharging for the value of N$50 NAD and texting in an eligibility code before 11pm on Friday evenings.

MTC Namibia

MTC (Mobile Telecommunications Limited) was established in 1995 as a joint venture between Namibia Post and Telecommunications Holdings (NPTH), Telia and Swedfund. During May 2004, NPTH concluded a deal that saw it hold 100% of the shares in MTC by acquiring the 49% held by Telia Overseas AB and Swedfund International AB. During 2006, the sale of 34% of MTC shares to Portugal Telecom was concluded for N$1.34 billion while the Namibian government retains the remainder of the stake through NPTH.

MTC currently covers 98% of the population of nearly 2 million citizens with more than 650 base stations and repeaters and offers a dual band 900/1800MHZ. The company also expanded its cellular coverage to all major towns in Namibia, including the major arterial roads. It further runs two modern MSC's (mobile switching centre) in Windhoek and Oshakati, with capacity to accommodate rapidly rising number of customers of over 1.3 million active users. MTC also operates the only full service customer contact centre in Namibia dealing with service queries ranging from telephony, SMS, fax, GPRS, data, voicemail and 3G/HSDPA. A staff complement of 367 persons serves a diverse market of both pre- and post-paid subscribers. http//
