    Cell C slashes Data Costs

    Last week we reported that Cell C’s CEO was planning more price cuts, but did not want to let his competitors know when he will “deal a uppercut” to them. Cell C has just announced their latest promotional data rates for people who want to get data only contracts, and once again they have significantly undercut their competitors.

    Vodacom has recently matched their pricing for certain packages, so its good to see how quickly Cell C reacts to the competition. Many users were also worried that the Giga packages would soon be phased out, but luckily it is still in place for late night surfers (or downloaders…). The new Giga pricing drops from R249 to R189 per month, and still offers some of the best value for money in SA right now.

    The Out of Bundle rate remains unchanged.

    These latest prices will run from today until 30 June:

    Monthly Data Device Cost PM MB  Cost per MB Out of Bundle Cost per MB
    500MB SIM Only R39 500  R0,08  R0,15
    1GB SIM Only R69 1000  R0,07  R0,15
    2GB SIM Only R99 2000  R0,05  R0,15
    2GB (with 3G USB stick) SIM R119 2000  R0,06  R0,15
    20GB (5GB Peak + 15GB Midnight Data) SIM Only R189 20000  R0,01  R0,15
    10GB SIM Only R499 10000  R0,05  R0,15
    20GB SIM Only R999 20000  R0,05  R0,15
