Cell C provides free access to Facebook and basic internet services through Internet.org. The company also offers unlimited WhatsApp at R5 per month, Dos Santos explained.

The Cell C CEO further said his company plans to attend the OTT hearings on January 26.
The only mobile operator with a backbone. One reason I'll never leave CellC.

.... such that they generate revenue for carrying the data services on their bandwidth infrastructure.
Don't they do that already by consuming data we pay for?

The reason that Vodacom and MTN are complaining is that they made much more profit per kb on SMS. So even though they do make money on data, it's nowhere near as much.

Good on you CellC. Vodacom and MTN are making far too much out of us already and they still complain.
