Even though most of the mobile networks have been under pressure to decrease data costs, voice calls costs are still rather expensive in SA.
Today Vodacom is launching its new Freedom 99 tarriff plan for prepaid customers, which allows you to call anytime, to any network for 99c per minute. This takes away a lot of guesswork for consumers who have been carrying multiple sim cards, and swopping them based on time of day or which number will be called.
Speaking about the new prepaid tariff, Vodacomâ€™s marketing head Enzo Scarcella said:
â€œCustomers have been looking for simplicity and for value, and Freedom 99 delivers exactly that.Â Calls to anyone, anytime, on any network in South Africa are now just 99 cents per minute with Freedom 99.Â It really is that simple.â€
In addition to this lower call rate, Freedom 99 customers who recharge with R12 or more can talk for free every night with Nightshift. Thatâ€™s 60 minutes every day for seven days to call Vodacom customers between midnight and 05h00.
Freedom 99 will be available from this Sunday – full details will be announced in the Sunday press.
