Johannesburg - Mobile network MTN has launched an unlimited storage capacity cloud service that costs R99 per month and which is also payable using prepaid airtime.

MTN said in a statement that it is positioning its product offering against the likes of international over the top (OTT) players which require credit card payments for storage top-ups.

File formats that can be stored on the service include documents, pictures, videos and audio files. These files can then also be accessed via an MTN Cloud mobile app for Android and Apple iOS operating sytems. Web users, meanwhile, can visit to use the service.

MTN added that its unlimited cloud service is available to both prepaid and postpaid customers.

“In this digital age the amount of information we collect and store is astounding,” said Larry Annetts, Chief Marketing Officer for MTN South Africa.

“It is critically important that consumers have the peace of mind knowing that the integrity of that information, be it business or personal, is not compromised. MTN Cloud ensures that this important data is not only stored for posterity, but is easily and safely accessible as well,” said Annetts.

Information stored on MTN Cloud is also encrypted to ensure security, said the mobile network.

According to an International Data Corporation (IDC) research report, South Africa's cloud services market value was expected to grow to $229.69m in 2014.
