How about 200 Gigs. Nobody can survive on just 10 Gigs anymore.

Who uses 200GB on their phone?

Where does the article say this is limited to phones only?
Mobile Routers are big business these days - and the only way for thousands of people to get access to broadband Internet.

I am a conservative Data user, used to do average 20gb on my ADSL. I got the MTN BF promo with 50gb. Now I blast through almost 20gb a month on my phone (just by using it - no excessive downloading of sorts).

10gb will only be sufficient for very old people I am sure.

R10 per GB from Cell C. I buy 200GB at a time
I'm using it on my LTE router. Strictly monitored only use 40-50 GB per month for 3 people = 3 cellphones, 3 laptops 3 PCs and a server, HowZat !

At least on Cell C one can pay the same as you would for 20GB for 30 days and instead get 50GB that expires in 365 days. And I think you can just buy more of the 365 day bundles whenever they expire anyway?

Maybe because you said 'nobody'? I can certainly survive on 10GB if it's for my phone...

That's what I'm also using - R2000 for 200 Gigs on prepaid - the 24 month deal is R899 per month.
It's just kinda temporary - until our Fibre is connected.
But we can easily burn through 200 Gigs as a family of five - YouTube, Facebook and Steam.

Everything doesn't always have to be spelled out for it to be obvious.

You are talking about fixed mobile solutions and warrant a whole other article, this one is clearly aimed at consumers with phones/tablets or mobile hotspots.

You need a prepaid sim and the you need to load something called a Giga bundle.

Telkom, if it is on-net, is a waste of time on a mobile.

I get 1Gb of telkom on-net and 100K of off-net

If I allow roaming, I chow through the 100K data without touching the gig.

If I don't allow roaming, the service is virtually useless when travelling

I'm pretty sure they've scrapped the on-net thing.

I used to get 1gb on and 150mb off but now can use all of it while roaming.

They also used to have separate bundles on and off net but don't anymore.
