BlackBerry 10 traffic will terminate on the carrier’s “Internet” APN – unlike the current BlackBerry Internet Services (BIS) and BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) traffic that terminates on the “blackberry.net” APN.
Subscription charges on the popular BIS data packages (hence the unlimited, flat-rated data packages) will fall away with the BlackBerry 10 operating system.
This is to “enhance the user experience of consumers who download apps, games, music, videos, books, magazines and more via their handset,” 8ta said.
The new BlackBerry 10 network architecture will enable mobile networks to package unique offers to consumers.
8ta said that it will be offering a range of data and voice packages to cater for the varied needs of BlackBerry 10 users.
“8ta is uniquely positioned to offer high volume data packages to provide 8ta customers with a quality experience while using their BlackBerry 10 device,” 8ta said.
BlackBerry 10 deals and devices will be available through 8ta flagship stores and Telkom Direct Stores from 1 March 2013.
