Neotel prepaid pricing details

Neotel has recently launched its prepaid service which the company says “allows consumers to pay for services according to your monthly budget”.  The prepaid service offers voice, SMS and basic Internet connectivity.

“For many South Africans, the ability to choose pre-paid as a payment method is not just a lifestyle option – it’s an economic necessity,” says Wandile Zote Executive Head of Corporate Communication at Neotel.

Neotel’s new prepaid service will be delivered over Neotel’s NeoConnect Lite platform, offering peak data speeds of 156 Kbps.  Realistic speeds will however be between 50 Kbps and 70 Kbps, the company’s helpdesk said.

Top up vouchers will be available for purchase through traditional Neotel sales points, as well as regional Sasol forecourts in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Pietermaritzburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

Vouchers are currently available only in R100 values, and will be deducted against voice, SMS and basic Internet usage.  New prepaid subscribers will also have to purchase a new NeoConnect Lite device for R599.

Neotel’s prepaid pricing is as follows:

Neotel Prepaid Tariffs
Destination Peak Off-peak
Neotel-to-Neotel R0.50 R0.50
Neotel to other operators R0.50 R0.50
Neotel to mobile R1.50 R1.20
National SMS R0.20 R0.20
International SMS R1.50 R1.50
Data per MB R0.20 R0.20

The simplicity of the Neotel prepaid pricing may appeal to some consumers, but the relatively high data prices and very slow speeds will not attract too many consumers interested primarily in Internet access.
