The idea of running of talking units in challenging circumstances can be unforeseen and unfortunate. Not everyone has easy access to airtime when sales points are closed; shops usually end their business day at 18h00. The only place to get airtime can be a service station for patrol and these are not easily available, they can be located for and in between. What to do when you need airtime for a difficult situation or just to nourish your soul and talk with a distant loved one or a family member? The idea that something as simple as a voucher can stop conversations is real. MTN Xtra is a perfect solution meant for such moments.
