Early 2011, Cell C sold off its 50% stake in Virgin Mobile, but continues to work with the company as a network partner.

Also in 2011 Cell C went through a major brand overhaul; rebranding the company from red to black and white. Additionally, local comedian, Trevor Noah, became fully integrated into their marketing campaign - using comedy and tongue-in-cheek jabs at competitors as a foothold into re-establishing itself into the market.

New Cell C Branding:



Cell C has since also been involved in court-cases with rival Network provider, Vodacom, regarding their marketing methods and product claims.
