Vodacom slashes data price



A Vodacom promotion starting tomorrow will see prepaid and top up data pricing fall by 87% – but is only valid for purchase for 63 days. This brings their pricing close to 8ta’s lowest rate.

Vodacom today announced a promotion that will see data costs for Prepaid and Top Up customers reduced by 87%. The promotion introduces Vodacom’s lowest per megabyte Prepaid mobile data price of 2.4c ‚ close to the lowest mobile broadband data price in South Africa.

Currently, 8ta offers the lowest in-bundle rate: their Internet 5 bundle sets pricing for all-day use at 1.9c per MB. However, it is also a promotional offer that may be withdrawn at any time.

The Vodacom data promotion launches on 7 November 2011 and will continue until 9 January 2012. However, the rate will be valid until the last day of the month following purchase.

The price reduction will apply to Broadband Advanced MyGig 20 Prepaid and Top Up once-off data bundles, now priced at R499 (incl. VAT). The normal retail price of the My Gig 20 Advanced bundle is R3620 (incl. VAT). The new promotional price gives a saving of R3121.

Says Chris Ross, Managing Executive: Commercial Development at Vodacom: ‚Offering increased value to our customers is our top priority, which is why we’re excited to offer this significant data price reduction to our Prepaid and Top Up customers. We are providing our customers great value for the festive season.‚
