Bull Sh@t to that. Just looked at e-mails my ass. Must have had some big attachments.
What is scary that this guy does not know that you can get a prepaid card in any country and use that. Much cheaper.
found this on the forum.
so he downloaded about a gig in e-mails.......
BEWARE International Data Roaming charges!!!
I'm posting here on behalf of my girlfriend, who has decided to take this matter to the public, just to raise awareness and not to get her money back. See below comment (excerpt from mail to Vodacom MD's office and Credit & Risk departments)
"I would like to raise awareness of the EXTREMELY high roaming charges in CHINA. It costs R140.89/meg i.e 1 gigabyte costs over R140,000 where 1 gigabyte from Vodacom costs R290 - more than 480 TIMES cheaper. I cannot believe that Vodacom is prepared to allow charges like this to be charged to their Customers albeit by another Network - it is daylight robbery and shows absolutely no Social Responsibility from a Company that maintains high Corporate Governance."
She is well aware that roaming is expensive, and she is a frequent traveler and has no problem spending money on phone calls etc while roaming. She is NOW aware that she should check the data roaming tariffs before embarking on a trip again . She only used about 6mb = R840!!! Imagine if she downloaded a GB! take out a second bond for a GB; when you could get it for like R70 at the corner garage!
The main point is, htf can a respected company like Vodacom, actually allow another company to charge their customers these rates. Especially from a country that has some of the cheapest broadband in the WORLD!!! Its unacceptable and Vodacom should never allow such a travesty!
