Today (7 March 2012), Nashua Mobile has launched a new data service called Xtreme data for Nokia phones that offers users unlimited usage on the MTN and Vodacom networks for R59 per month.

“Xtreme Data allows you to make the most of the internet on your smartphone with access to Email, Browsing, Internet, Social Networking and Instant Messaging at a fixed cost of only R59 per month,” Nashua Mobile said.

The service allows for up to a maximum of 512kbps broadband Internet access.  It will offer shaped bandwidth which involves the prioritising of Internet traffic for web browsing, email, social networking and instant messaging.

“Certain streaming protocols will be blocked on the Xtreme Data network, for example YouTube,” said Nashua Mobile.

Subscribers will see increased shaping and/or throttling after using more than 100MB of data per month and can expect even more aggressive shaping/throttling after using 160MB in a month.

This new Nokia-specific smartphone data bundle is exclusive to Nashua Mobile, the service provider said, even though the service runs on the Vodacom and MTN networks. The service provider uses commercial APNs from the network operators to offer its service.

Xtreme Data is initially available for the Nokia X2-01 and Nokia C3 mobile phones and the Nokia N8, Nokia E5 and Nokia E7 smartphones.
