Vodacom have recently announced that their data costs have fallen over 15% during the course of the last year.

This is somewhat unsurprising due to the ongoing #datamustfall campaign that has flooded social media. South Africans, it seems, have had enough of the exorbitant charges that come with data.

The Small Print And Out-of-Bundle Rates

Each service provider offers various packages to suit your unique needs. What has to be considered for MTN, however, is the fact that the data has a lifespan. Depending on the amount of data you buy, it will expire. Most only last 30 days, and once you buy above 5G, that will only last 60 days. Should you want it to not expire and roll over, you will need to contact MTN in order for this to happen.

In many cases, most people have found themselves out of data. The Out-of-Bundle Charges look like this (per MB):

  • Vodacom: R1.50
  • Cell C: R1.10
  • MTN: R0.99
  • Telkom: R0.29

    that’s why i swapped to mtn , vodacom is the worst!!!!

  • Pieter Zwanepoel

    The information above is not correct. One can purchase 100 GB anytime data, valid for 1 year, directly from a Cell C shop for R999. That is less than 1c per MB. Also available at R999 is 50 GB + 100 GB (night data from midnight to 06:00). No other ISP comes close.

  • Aj Ellis

    Cell C prices went up it is
    R1499 for 100Gig anytime and
    R1999 for 200gig AnytimeAnd the other package for
    R999 for 50Gig anytime and 150 Midnight

    All I want in life is for someone to explain to me how service providers are able to sell data that “expires”. Does the data go sour after some time?
