MTN South Africa has been named the winner of the Best Service in Telecommunications sector and the Best Call Centre in the country across all industries in the 2014/15 Ask Afrika Orange Index Awards.

"We are very proud of this achievement as the telecommunications sector is traditionally one of the hardest fought areas reflecting its importance in the connected world of today. By being recognised by these prestigious awards reflects our commitment to ensure that the customer is at the heart of everything we do. I wish to thank our staff for being good ambassadors of the brand, without them, we would not have achieved this milestone," says Eddie Moyce, Chief Customer Experience Officer: MTN South Africa.
