Why would anyone...
uninformed people that get excited by nonsense. maybe Trevor Noah can come and tell us a few jokes, from his CEO days at cell C

for HALF of that you can do better, MUCH better

Okay - you guys can be so cynical!
I for one, use about 100GB per annum, or 50GB in 6 months, and this CellC deal would cost me R500 for that amount of data. Now if only I could buy two sims, activate one now and the other in six months..
Rain has two options:
1. R50 per GB which equates to R2500 for 50GB
2. Unlimited off-peak at R250 p/m which would cost R1500 for 6 months.
How is that better???

to be fair, unless you a regular mybb forumite, or run in circles frequented by people in the IT industry,

there is no way you will know about RAIN or their deals, Rain almost never advertises,

again greedy cellphone companies being greedy, and people being terribly misinformed about deals.

its this attitude that keeps us behind the rest of the world when it comes to data penetration.
so people will buy as they don't know ANY better, sad really, data is made artificially expensive, by greedy providers

yip, you buy a sim card for R120 including delivery,
and once its active, after the free data days are finished, you just add it onto the contract, (month to month)

honestly this cell c deal is for misinformed people.

R120 price is gone up to R150 [R50 for sim and R100 for delivery] but still a damn good deal. It is now 7 days free, 15 days promo is no longer valid.

Don't know what CellC was thinking, hopefully this is just a taste of their long validity packages :D.

And when the 50GB runs out, you need to buy another sim? Lol.
Y'ello! Your 50GB promo deal is expiring. MTN has a special Sim Only offer just for you #wegotu. Upgrade to a MTN MADE FOR ME L AND VOICE BOOSTER 100MIN+50GB plan with an added promotional 50GB Anytime data & 300 All-networks minutes per month valid for 24 months. Was R 2616 Now R 549. Visit any MTN store or call 0831233667 to upgrade. T's & C's apply.
So 100GB + 400 minutes for R50 more...
