Which MTC Prepaid Package is Right For You?

MTC is the undisputed market leader and its share of subscribers towers over its competitor Telecom Namibia. MTC has a fine collection of postpaid or contract packages to choose from. Despite the advantages of postpaid subscription or contract phones, many prefer to go the prepaid way. The freedom of not being compelled to pay a rental or a minimum amount every month regardless of usage is certainly desirable.

MTC brings to you an assortment of prepaid packages, each of which not only works but offers great value for money. Let us quickly review the MTC prepaid plans or packages that subscribers can choose from.

  • Aweh O-Yeah is a plan that lets the subscribers choose a particular bundle for voice minutes, data, text messages or SMS and separate data usage for social media. By segregating each usage, subscribers get the freedom to cap different types of services being used. Some people use more data while some need more voice minutes. There are many who would still prefer texting so there’s the SMS package by quantity. Social media data usage is bundled separately which helps the social networking enthusiasts.
  • Aweh Super gives you free calls to any national numbers for only N$50.00. There are 700 free minutes, 1500 free SMSs, 350 MB of data for browsing and downloads along with 700 MB of social media data usage.
  • Aweh Prime gives you free calls to any national numbers for only N$30.00. There are 350 free minutes and 700 free SMSs, 200 MB free data and an additional 200 MB for social media data usage.
  • Aweh Gig gets you free calls to any national numbers for only N$30.00. There are 100 free minutes, 700 SMS, 1 GB free data usage and 500 MB for social media data usage.
  • Aweh Go gets you free calls to any national numbers for only N$12.00. There are 50 free minutes, 150 free SMSs, 50 MB free data and an additional 50 MB for social media data usage.
  • T49 allows you to call to any local network for just 38 cents per minute from the first minute during validity period.
  • Tango per Second allows you to pay just for the time you talk to, till the last second. There are no pulse rates or capped times and tariff. You pay 2.5c per second.
  • MTC Traveller gives you the luxury to bring your mobile phone connection from wherever you are travelling and you can use your mobile rates when you are in Namibia.

The free calls to national numbers in the Aweh plans are applicable once for subscribers who migrate.

Jiva & Super Aweh Aweh: A Head To Head Comparison

The telecommunications industry in Namibia is dominated by two players, MTC and Telecom Namibia. MTC is presently the market leader with more than two million active subscribers. Telecom Namibia along with its acquired brand of TN Mobile presently has a little less than half a million active subscribers. Both the brands have been aggressive over the last few years, especially with its launch of 3G and 4G connectivity as well as phone and data plans. The two brands have similar plans across various categories, two of which are Super Aweh Aweh and Jiva. Here is a head to head comparison of Jiva from Telecom Namibia and Super Aweh Aweh from MTC.

The Offers

Here’s what Telecom Namibia’s Jiva has to offer:

1GB free data, 100 free minutes of talk time and 700 free SMS

Here’s what MTC’s Super Aweh Aweh has to offer:

2GB free data, 700 free minutes of talk time and 1500 free SMS

The Cost

Jiva charges N$30 and Super Aweh Aweh charges N$50.


Both, Telecom Namibia’s Jiva and MTC’s Super Aweh Aweh are valid for 7 days.

The Head To Head Comparison

Jiva and Super Aweh Aweh are different plans with the same validity. They are charged differently and naturally the benefits are also different. However, for a head to head comparison, let us compare the value for the dollar. We shall do this by considering what you may get from Jiva if you spend equivalent of Super Aweh Aweh or from Super Aweh Aweh if you consider the charge of Jiva.

At N$30, Jiva is offering 1 GB free data. For you to get 2 GB of free data, you would end up paying N$ 60 with Jiva plan, if there was such a provision. With Super Aweh Aweh, you are getting 2 GB free data at N$ 50. Clearly, Super Aweh Aweh is a better plan for those who need 2 GB data but those who are happy with 1 GB will find the Jiva to be more economic.

At N$ 30, Jiva is offering 100 minutes of talk time and 700 SMS whereas at N$ 50, Super Aweh Aweh is offering 700 free minutes and 1500 SMS. Super Aweh Aweh is way better than Jiva in terms of the minutes of talk time but the increase in the SMS count is almost proportional to the increase in price.


Super Aweh Aweh offers much more value for the dollar than Jiva. However, those who need very little data and make very few calls and SMS would be better off with Jiva.
