How to respond to this without cursing...“Vodacom: For example, enforcing a 3-year expiry period for prepaid data bundles will eliminate our hugely-popular daily and weekly offers.”
“Of the more than 2 billion bundles that our customers will use this year, the majority are smaller and micro-bundles.”
I have no problem with 2 or 4 as they give control of the product to the users, but 1 and 3 are simply stupid. They will do the exact opposite of what they intend and increase the price of data.1)All licensees are required to provide prepaid data bundles with a minimum expiry period of 3 years.
2)Licensees are required to send usage notifications for data depletion to users – the intervals must show 50%, 75%, 90%, and 100% depletion.
3)Rollover of unused minutes and data.
4)Users must be given an option to opt-in or opt-out of being charged out-of-bundle data rates.
As I understand it it doesn't as those aren't standard bundles.I was just about to ask, how is this going to affect the 500gb bundle from Telkom.
Also does this only apply to prepaid? Wondering specifically with regards to Rain and Afrihost/Axxess products.
