Vodacom rejoins data price war



Vodacom has slashed data prices with a new promotion for contract customers. It has announced a Broadband Standard MyGig 1 and MyGig 2 data contract promotion, which runs from 07 February 2012 to 06 May 2012.

With this latest promotion, Vodacom has broken the R100 price point on big data bundles – customers will now pay only R99 for 1GB.

‚Our previous data promotions proved to be so successful that we decided to do it again. This time we’re giving savings of up to 60% to our customers. It is just the value proposition our customers are looking for at the beginning of the year. And as with all our data products, these promotional contracts will use Vodacom’s high speed data network with the broadest coverage across South Africa,‚ says Chris Ross, Managing Executive for Commercial Development at Vodacom.

The Broadband Standard MyGig 1, 24 month contract has been reduced from R249 per month to R99 per month, giving customers a 60% saving and the MyGig 2, 24 month contract has been reduced from R349 per month to R149. After the initial 24 months contract period, the contract can be renewed or will continue on a month to month basis, at the then prevailing rate for the relevant bundle size. The promotional offer includes a free modem and normal out of bundle prices apply. There are no restrictions on the use of these data bundles ‚ they can be used any time of the day.

‚We recently offered our prepaid customers a 20GB promotion that offered them great value and now we are offering our contract and Top Up customers great value‚ adds Ross.
