Thread: Prepaid data deals, getting no love.

  1. #1

    Default Prepaid data deals, getting no love.

    That 20Gig deal for R500 feels like it was from a previous era already.

    The 3rd world country not far from here has an uncapped 3G deal at R999/month. Some are actually not too f***d up!

    Yep, I was telling my grand kids as I bounced them on my knees that about the same time the space shuttle made its final flight to the museum, the last vodacom pay as you go 20Gig deal was the last technological advancement in many many moons in our country and we never ever saw it again and thats why the poor sods are eating Cabbage soup tonight.

    Lot of noise, but too short to be remembered what it was, honestly.

    Sure, you got 17.78 megabits per second in the nineties.

    Vodacom: where are the new prepaid deals?

    With that R500 you could get uncapped 384kbps adsl + voice line + dsl line.

    What I do not get with these mobile networks is HOW is it that ADSL can sell R20 per 1GB of data, where R20 gets us less than 20MB of data with mobile networks?

    Yes, maybe they cant sell uncapped due to them not having capacity at network towers, but cant they at least make higher caps at affordable rates (8ta 10GB for R199 is really affordable).

    But seriously, these networks are ripping us off so much. Hope when people start using VOIP, they feel the pain we feel with their outrageous data pricing.

    I hope ICASA can sort them out with their outrageous pricing. I hear SA has the most expensive data + voice mobile networks in Africa.

    That would be awesome. Not having to worry about running out of cap and being unable to download patches and play online as much as you want.

    Although if we were given enough cap at decent prices that wouldn't even matter. All I need per month to fully keep me happy is 7Gig. If a 7Gig deal would come out at R210 or less on prepaid I'd probably grab it without thinking twice.

    Atm you can get like what for R210? 1Gig...
