When I saw the headline I thought I'd see Vodacom and MTN as the cheapest. Then I read the article and saw the 8ta and CellC were the cheapest. This study has changed everything we knew about prepaid tariffs. Who knew that CellC's 99c per minute is actually cheaper than Vodacom's R1.40 per minute.

The force is strong with this one...

At this rate MTN will have a network full of Ayoba customers and the only thing Vodacom will be "doubling" is the number of customers porting over to Cell C :D

In all seriousness, how much money did ICASA waste on this study?!

Using methodology employed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operating and Development (OECD), ICASA calculated the cost incurred by users who make a certain number of calls every month.
We all know they didn't use some junior to get the pricing off each carrier's website and plug them into an excel table.

Hehehe. What a useless study. Clearly this is why ICASA is so important to this country .............

What constitutes the 300 outbound calls?
Is that 300 x 2m30s calls = 750m?

South Africa is still one of the most expensive in the world.

ICASA is confusing MP's with statistics.

:D

But, honestly I think the most who are confused are the one's who continually allow themselves to be fleeced by Vodacom and MTN.

Now ICASA knows what we already knew...

Since I'm on Cell C my airtime lasts forever. With Vodacom it felt that all I did was recharge the whole time as I kept on running out of airtime...
