Summary: Cell C unveiled their new data products yesterday, which are more expensive than their current data promotions due to end on 14 October.
Cell C yesterday informed people that anyone wishing to take advantage of the current R0.07c pricing should do so before the 14th of October. The reason is that Cell C’s aggressive promotional pricing will come to an end next week.
This is sound advice from Cell C. The company’s new mobile broadband pricing is much higher than their current R1499 for 24GB (with a USB modem) and R2999 for 60GB (with a USB modem).
Cell C’s new range of products will take effect from 1 November and will replace the promotional offers mentioned above.
Cell C is expanding its range of products allowing customers to choose options that either include or exclude a speed stick or router.
- Cell C is introducing a new 1GB per month product (12GB over a year), which will be available for R1,999 once-off including a speed stick capable of download speeds of up to 7.2Mbps. For those customers that already have a device, 1GB per month over a year will cost R1,499 once-off.
- The 2GB per month package (24GB over a year) will cost R2,999 once-off with a speed stick, capable of download speeds of up to 21.6Mbps, included or R1,999 without a device.
- The 5GB per month package (60GB over a year) will cost R5,999 once-off with a Cell C MyZone router or R4,499 without a device.
Cell C’s traditional out-of-bundle rate of 39c/MB will apply on all these products.
Cell C’s new data products are significantly more expensive than their current offerings as shown in the tables below.
The bottom line is that if you are keen to use Cell C’s data products, sign up for a package before October 14 to save yourself a lot of money.
