Tim Ekandjo, Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs Officer, said the objective behind the establishment of the Support Centre is to have a dedicated shop that caters solely for device-related problems especially data concerns given MTC’s evolution into mobile internet technologies.
“For the convenience of our customers, the centre will be helpful in alleviating traffic from our mobile homes and to serve as a convenient one-stop centre for all data and device-related services and to ensure that customers receive a satisfactory service level as well as a quick response time for their glitches”. Our data business is equally important to us and it was therefore necessary to have a dedicated Customer Support Centre with the emphasis on data queries,” Ekandjo said
Customers can also buy prepaid airtime and do contract payments with the vending machines that are in the shop and can browse the internet for free while doing business with MTC.
“MTC now has 27 Mobile Homes country wide. We will continue to expand our footprint in towns where we are not present yet as a means of bringing MTC’s services closer to its customers,” Ekandjo said
The trading hours for the Customer Support Centre are Mondays to Fridays 08:00 until 17:00 and on from 08:00 to 13:00 on Saturdays.
