8ta quietly reduced its prepaid data prices recently, cutting its old prepaid data rates by between 16.5% and 30%.

The new prices were implemented without fanfare or much detail, but the mobile network operator has since confirmed that the reductions are here to stay and are not part of a new promotion.

8ta’s latest prepaid prices undercut all of its rivals. These lower prices may well force Vodacom, MTN and Cell C to react in the coming weeks or months.

8ta’s new prepaid data bundle prices are as follows:

  • 100MB – R40
  • 250MB – R80
  • 500MB – R120
  • 1GB – R200
  • 2GB – R266
  • 5GB – R666

It should be noted that 8ta is still running its ‘3GB Go Big’ promotion, offering subscribers 2GB of data and 1GB of after hours data for R149 per month.

The following table provides an overview of how 8ta’s latest prepaid data prices stack up against its competitors’ rates.

100MB R40 R49 R50
250MB R80 R99 R100
