    Default Need internet package for my Dad?

    Just got my father to cancel his telkom dial-up, it just wasnt working out.

    I want to get him on 3G, he stays in Butterworth (former Transkei)

    Should I just get him the MTN F@stlink E352
    Subscription fee
    R139
    PM
    X24
    Including 2GB Internet Bundle PM x 24

    2GB is way too much for him to use, he uses 250mb and below.
    So it would be ideal if I we could not sign any "contracts" and go pay as you go?

    Here's another option as well, only 12 months, but as I said I would prefer no contracts, is there no place I can order online?

    This doesnt look too bad either, no contract and it seems you can buy more data as you need it?

    Have you 8ta coverage?

    How about the prepaid 120gig deal for R1800.
    You can always use his access data.

    The place I work for provides me with 2GB a month so I'm not in a need for more.

    The Internet starter pack from Vodacom seems ok'ish - 100mb for 12 months at R33 p/m + option to purchase more data in a month.
    R399 once off includes modem.

    8ta operates off the MTN network iirc.

    Buy 2Gig bundle on the beginning of the month, it is valid to the end of next month. R133pm, no contracts. You can adjust bundle size according to the actual usage.

    What about that cell-c deal that is valid for a year? like R400 for 3gigs?would be ideal.

    Not on their data promo's though.
    In South Africa even the information superhighway has potholes in it.
