Boorman: "blahblahblah, its too complicated to explain to the peasents but we're not ripping you off - honest!"
Simple fact of the matter (as the report paints it very very clearly) some bloody how our cellphone costs are 32/46 in Africa... this is vs countries who are ("were" is probably more apt with the pitiful progress our government has been showing) miles behind us in progress.
This just follows the trend of everything else around here where we pay more for less benefit and get told that all is well and we just need to shut up and live with it. Not to point out the obvious - but its funny how many of these issues point to our highly competent government
MY BLOED IS BLOU!
Kick SANRAL in the gantries! DO NOT REGISTER OR BUY E-TAGS!
The name of the product "Vodacom 4 less" is quite funny when it is just about the most you can possibly pay for a call in SA at R2.79 per minute.
....and in other news it was revealed today that the Pope is indeed Catholic and that the earth revolves around the sun.
Sigh! I wouldn't be surpised if Icasa staff are receiving cutbacks for hamstringing the organisation.
Everybody does it! Why should they be any different?
What really, really gets me is that people normally have a budget to spend on any given thing. And it's not like wires and cellphone towers wear out from the data that passes through them. They can price voice especially at almost any price point and people will still spend just as much on it. Think about it... If per minute was worth less then free minutes would be worth less to give away, but people will still make extra calls afterwards if it was cheap enough. Or probably more, because voice calls would not be perceived as an expensive thing any more so people would probably just call away like crazy.
How about some actual news, not something everyone already knows...
