Cell C has slashed the price of its Giga20 product from R279 per month to R99 per month.

The Cell C Giga20 contract offers subscribers 5GB of anytime data, 15GB of after-hours data, and a Huawei E5573 LTE Mi-Fi Router for R99 per month.

The price cut followed Telkom’s March Deal of the Month, where it offered a Huawei E5577 LTE Mi-Fi router with 5GB of data for R99 per month.

The new Giga20 offer will be available from Cell C stores and participating partners until 31 May 2016.
