Parliament hires MTN to supply MPs with OTT
Parliament has hired MTN, telecom service provider to provide mobile data and OTT tax for Members of Parliament to get free services for their iPads.
The Parliamentary Commission recently embarked on a bidding process to identify the best service provider to provide mobile data and OTT tax for mobile computing devices for MPs.
The bidding notice indicates that MTN will provide a 5GB monthly bundle at UGX30,000 and UGX6000 OTT tax for each MPs’ device per month.
This means that Parliament will spend UGX36,000 for each MP per month.
With the total of about 460 MPs, Parliament will part with UGX16,560,000m per month for the MPs’ mobile data and OTT tax payment for their iPads.
