It is only 40 or so more days to 2021BF and I have not heard anything on BF2021 in general (from general retail). Wish I could keep it that way.

For those on the worse BF cycle (the one that followed the R150/50GB/200min cycle) have you been contacted over any upgrade deals? Not an upgrade, I am looking to port my Telkom number and trying to get a feel of whats on offer.
Well what seems to work with them, is to ask what offer they have, if they call you and then tell them sorry not good enough, I need more data then what you currently offer and at a better price point, got a 150/150 for R150.00 offer, said cool deal, but not looking to upgrade right now, as my other contract will be due for renewal in April and I am willing to hold out till then. They weren't exactly thrilled with that idea, as they have been nagging me to upgrade sending quite a few emails and calling me once every few months.Was hoping they offer 240gig anytime data again for R349.0 I got 2-3 months back, I probably could have if a pushed a little more.

So yeah if you do speak to some one, be polite and the agent might just be a little more forthcoming with regards to retention deals, as they do try and sell you the best deal for their pocket, you will be willing to settle on, I wouldn't say it is a scummy tactic, but rather I think they have quotas on how many of the better deals they can sell in a set period, it wouldn't surprise me if this is indeed true, push a little and see what happens might get lucky.

120gig/120gig plus modem for R409.....eh not bad.... Mtn is getting desperate for me to upgrade, however I am holding out till April.....maybe black friday has some thing special. If this was 240gig/240gig, and sim only would have taken it on the spot.

Its that time of the year again...
Any decent deals?
If you can't get fibre, then the R499 uncapped LTE is a good deal, however speed is capped to 10mb/s. That is sufficient just for Netflix YouTube etc.

Many of the MTN towers in the southern cape don't last at all.
Contact of mine had a meeting with the regional manager : He said MTN isn't replacing their towers' batteries anymore.

So while the new towers come equipped with batteries - they don't replace them after that.
Little to no signal here during Loadshedding, and businesses using MTN LTE are shirt out of luck during LS and also for roughly 20-30 minutes after power has been restored before it's working again.

Atleast Fibre stays on.

Can one put a sim like this into one's phone, will it work, e.g. if running dual sim have it as the data sim.

And data sharing to another sim card should work too?

Should work, as long as its not mychoice and unlimited data plans according to their current terms and conditions

Nothing great from MTN this year?

Vodacom has a decent 400gb anytime + 400gb night sim only @ R349
Wow, being R150 cheaper, this puts the MTN 500+500 @499 I am on to shame. MTN really hooked me in with this 3 year contract but hopefully been sim only I can cancel at anytime without much of a penalty.
