ROFL!

I dont have a problem with this kind of thing really. From what I understand Tesco's being a grocery store in UK doing pretty well with their mobile offerings with good prices. I just think this offer from Mr. Price is pretty meh! /shrugs.

Oh and the fact that it is on Cell C ..... SUPER OOBER DOOPER MEH!

Not the same thing. Nashua was a service provider, Mr Price is a virtual operator, like Virgin and Red Bull Mobile.
Huh? Nashua sold contracts on all networks whereas Mr. Price just sells for one. Same model, same challenges, same drawbacks.

Calling Nashua a "service" providers clearly indicates you never had to deal with them!

Mr Price Mobile....I do not think this will be sustainable....R1.79 per minute on voice...while others are offering 99c/79c (I hear there is 50 and 29c per minute). Next they running off Cell C's network, which isn't so great in quite a number of parts in the country.

I will be surprised if Mr Price Mobile becomes a success....

RBM is technically not an MVNO. Cell C does all the heavy lifting (distribution, logistics, support, billing), so it's just a Red Bull branded Cell C product.

R 1.79/minute... that's daylight robbery.
+1

I had a Cell C bundle from Edgars. I was paying R35pm for R85 airtime. But I was being charged R1.60 per minute, billed per minute. Was still a good deal overall though, since it was only R35.

I can just imagine standing in the queue inside their 30 degrees Celsius+ stores trying to resolve a billing issue, not to mention being on SA's kakest network...
