Research ICT Africa has released its latest pricing policy report, which shows that Cell C offers the best value to mobile contract customers.

The Postpaid Value Index (PVI) measures the value a customer gets for the monthly subscription price they pay, in terms of bundled minutes, SMS, and data.

When the price of a plan increases – or there is a decrease in the number of bundled minutes, SMS, or data – the value of that plan declines.

Both MTN and Vodacom’s average value offerings on the PVI have dropped between Q2 2015, when the mid-contract price increases were instituted, and Q1 2016.

The average value offerings from all the smaller operators – Cell C, me&you mobile, Telkom, and Virgin Mobile – have increased in the same time frame.

The report shows that Cell C offers the highest average contract value, followed by me&you mobile, and Telkom.
