Vodacom customers can expect lower data prices and much easier to use Wi-Fi products as part of the recently signed agreement between WirelessG and Vodacom. This is according to WirelessG CEO Carel van der Merwe.

WirelessG and Vodacom recently signed an agreement in which Vodacom will bundle G-Connect Wi-Fi data products with certain mobile product offerings.

Van der Merwe explained that Vodacom customers stand to benefit from the new Vodacom-WirelessG agreement.

“It will be much more cost effective to use Wi-Fi through your Vodacom bundle,” said van der Merwe.

“To get access to Wi-Fi utilising an existing 3G bundle is also much quicker and easier than to make credit card purchases.”

“Prepaid data products will instantly be available directly through mechanisms such as USSD or the Vodacom App,” he added.

Vodacom customers will further be the first to use their bundled products to get access to In-Flight Wi-Fi on-board Mango – at better rates than Wi-Fi on the ground.

Details about the Vodacom 3G and Wi-Fi data packages will only be released later, but van der Merwe said that the offering will include both Vodacom contract and pre-paid products.

“The 3G / Wi-Fi bundled products will be a new product range. The Wi-Fi component will be added at a very reasonable price component,” said van der Merwe.
