Best month-to-month mobile data deals in South Africa

If you don't fancy signing up for a long-term contract, there are multiple mobile data packages available in South Africa on a month-to-month basis.

While fibre is the ideal option for Internet users with big data requirements, it's not readily available to most South African households yet.

Mobile broadband is available more widely but is also more expensive. The data speeds on mobile networks can also vary greatly based on your location and the time of day.

The most attractive mobile data prices are often offered on long-term contracts, but this locks you into a single provider for 12 to 36 months.

Telkom Mobile currently has a special offer on their 20GB, where they bump it up to 40GB day, 40GB night for R199


Available on contract or month to month. No router included without contact obviously

This article seems to be nonsense! As with the previous comment, I also cannot find this package (first one listed):

30GB anytime data
30GB night data
Afrihost / Axxess
MTN: R199

Axxess gives you 4GB for R206: https://www.axxess.co.za/mobile/data
Afrihost gives you 4GB for R207: https://www.afrihost.com/airmobile/data-only


Sim only plan gets you 30GB day and 30GB night for R199 per month.

MTN is the best via axxess or afrihost but routers are expensive. 110+110gb MTN deal nobody can find anywhere, it's BS if the deal comes with a stipulation of having to buy a R2000 router.
