Neotel has recently unveiled its new prepaid data bundles, offering 100 gigabytes (GB) of data and a NeoFlex MiFi device for R2,299 and 36 gigabytes of data and a NeoFlex MiFi device for R1,699.

Neotel explained that the MiFi device offers the user a personal WiFi hotspot, which means that the operator’s new product range competes directly against the mobile operators.

In its press statement Neotel claimed that their new prepaid data bundles offer the “greatest value prepaid data in South Africa”.

To put this claim to the test one should compare Neotel’s pricing to the best priced prepaid offers from Vodacom, 8ta and Cell C.

The following table shows that Neotel’s products do indeed offer better value for money than its competitors.
