My 10GB contract with 8ta's 10GB offering is about a year old now and I can't stop wondering if 8ta will still offer such a low priced offer after 24 months? Which will be in 2013.
I read an article or two about Telkom's poor performance on the stock market, and about Telkom's earnings results. I remember reading that Telkom was about R1 billion in the red because of 8ta. So this begs the question if 8ta's 10B offering is sustainable? Especially when Vodacom and MTN don't offer anything remotely close to what 8ta is offering. A 10GB data bundle would cost more than R1200 a month from Vodacom and MTN, this is both for month to month and a 24 month contract. This makes me wonder even more, what's the catch? Why is 8ta's 10GB so cheap? Maybe I missed something in the terms and conditions. Maybe I'll end up paying R5000 at the end of 24 months, just like paying R30 000 after 72 months on a car while paying a very affordable monthly installment on a residual offering .
