Telkom Mobile prepaid Internet starter pack

Telkom Mobile is promoting its prepaid Internet started pack, offering a 14.4Mbps HSPA modem and 200MB of data per month for 12 months for R399 once-off.

Telkom Mobile’s advertising follows the launch of a new SIM-only “200MB per month” Red Bull Mobile prepaid service by Cell C for R149 once-off.

Cell C’s Red Bull Mobile deal also includes 2 free Red Bull Studio CDs mixed by DJ Thibo Tazz and DJ Niskerone, and access to the Red Bull Mobile portal.

Telkom Mobile’s deal, however, seems to take aim at Vodacom’s Internet Starter Pack which it shares a name with.

Vodacom charges R399 once-off for 12 allocations of 100MB of data every 30 days and a 3G data modem, all bundled into one package.

This means that Telkom Mobile is offering double the data allowance per month for the same price as Vodacom’s service.
