Cell C offers phone-a-year

Cell C has launched a new promotion that offers customers five new contract packages that include a new handset every 12 months for the duration of the contract selected.

Also included in the new packages are reduced data, SMS and MMS rates in addition to the flat (in and out of bundle, peak and off-peak) 99c per minute on per second billing voice rate. The promotion will run from 17 August 2012 to 17 November 2012.

‚”The beauty of this 3 month promotion is not only in the guaranteed new handset that customers will receive at the beginning of every contractual 12-month period but also in the reduced rates. However, this is not a lock-in contract, if you choose a 4-year contract and want to opt out after 1 year, or 2 years, or 3 years, you can at no penalty. But then you will of course only get a new phone at the beginning of each year you are contracted for,‚” says Cell C CEO Alan Knott-Craig.

In addition to the guaranteed handset annually, customers who sign up for any of the new contracts on promotion will benefit from the company’s unrivalled flat 99c per minute, on per second billing Voice rate, which includes calls to 50 international destinations, a reduced rate of 25c for Data (per MB), as well as 25c per SMS and MMS for the duration of their contract term.

The contract packages will be available on postpaid and hybrid (top-up) and customers can enjoy the benefits for a period of 12 months, 24 months, 36 months or 48 months depending on the contract length they choose.

‚”Each contract will include monthly airtime that can be used for Voice, SMS, MMS or Data or any combination of these at rates, never-before-seen in the market. The same reduced rates will also apply for out-of-bundle Voice, Data, SMS and MMS usage.‚” Says Knott-Craig.
