That's a shame, I was going to buy the 200BG anytime once off deal but now not so sure it's worth it.

Good times.

I'm waiting for my one contract to sunset before moving it over to prepaid.

Then I'll get an Axxess 2Gb SIM and use it in a mifi for connectivity at home and on the road. At office I can use wifi.

A small tablet is even better for personal hotspot use. Mines battery lasts over 24 hours, while most of the mifi devices don't even last 10 hours from their spec sheets.

If it is dual-sim, even better.

Mine is single-SIM :(

Data wise Telkom prepaid offers:
1GB at R99
2GB at R139
3GB at R199

Data expires at end of the next month, example: buy 1 Jan, it expires 28 Feb. Buy 20 Jan, it expires 28 Feb.

....and for Telkom's 100GB valid for 12 months you pay R3,199 compared with Cell C's new price for Giga100 of R1,499.

And? Not everyone needs a ADSL/fibre replacement on their mobile phone. Hell, that 100GB Cell will be wasted on me, I don't even use up my 1GB per month.

Some of us use the Giga packages for our laptops as our main connection.

I bought mine in Jan to avoid price hike!
Good on you for having the foresight, I was expecting them to leave the giga packages as is.

Or live in newly developed areas (like myself) where ADSL is not worth the hassle and fibre not available.

MTN 1c per second is back (60c/min).
Been looking at that.........................closely. Would probably move my Afrihost data to that SIM card though, but I'm not sure whether I want the hassle of porting my number + moving the data.
