MTN. Can't remember why I selected them, it was probably 25 years ago.

Telkom, back when 8ta was launched the 2gb bundle price was good value.

Once again, an incomplete questionnaire.

A sim can be used for data only (Rain), or data and/or voice like in the rest of the national SP's.

I have Rain and VC in my case, and I'm sure there are many others with more than 1 SP.

Cell C - because of the Red Bull Internet Starter Pack - which gave 100mb/month for 12 months (just assumed it would be renewable... it' wasn't ...) and yet... I still haven't ported :(

(Telkom and Vodacom both have these kind of packages now...)

Got my first phone, Nokia 6110, with the sim card some 20 years ago, my dad upgraded his contract and I got the old phone.

Best phone ever!

Edit. Got it with a Vodacom sim

Cell C. It provided the products I needed to replace my Telkom landline and ADSL line, with the least effort, cost and disruption to me at the time of the changeover. Cell C was the only mobile operator offering these:
  1. Cheapest prepaid calling rate, 66c/minute with per second charges, airtime doesn't expire as long as you make 1 call every 3 months.
  2. Prepaid data that lasts 365 days, cheapest per Gb cost in this product range is currently R10/Gb.
  3. Cheapest prepaid calling bundle for Anynet calls (calls to any numbers in South Africa, emergency & toll-free numbers are free, one of the several Anynet calling plans is R200/30 days/15 hours).

MTN, 25 years back,

My boss then were with MTN, and we went to the main Morningside office for some question he had, and there and then decided I want in, and took a contract.

Never looked baxk! MTN really treated me well over the years.

I use Vodacom for voice calls and data services sometimes
I also have Telkom Sims for data services
I even have MTN but don't use it too much so you are right
