Agreed!"the 99c on-net rate which already incorporated the change of termination rates"
How does a 99c on-net rate incorporate a off net interconnect decrease ? This doesn't make sense Cell C. Also your 99c on-net promotion as per your own website states it only runs until the 31st March 2012 what happens after that. Also the 99c on-net only applies to prepaid and control chat, what about post paid contract users zero savings for them..
You also already offer the worst service of any provider in this country. Moving from Virgin was the best decision I ever made.Virgin Mobile already offers the lowest call rates and best value deals in the market. Consequently we do not have immediate plans to drop our rates further at this time
If I make a mobile call from Vodacom to a Cell C customer, and Vodacom is paying Cell C 27.4c/minute less per minute for my call from today(vat included), surely I as the customer should be charged 27.4.4c/minute less for the call as well?there is no net charge to the consumer, so reducing mobile termination rates doesn’t create a net saving that can be passed on to the customer
Lol, how does it feel to thumbsuck a statistic and make a fool of yourself ? 5% Bwahahah! Sure thing :wtf:"Cell C has launched the 99c on-net rate which already incorporated the change of termination rates."
Hahaha - Is this guy serious!
On-Net rate ... ie nothing to do with interconnect rate drop!
And less than 5% of mobile users are on Cell-C anyway... so 95% chance you will be paying a lot more than the 99c!!
I am also trying to wrap my head around that "no net profit difference to pass on". Ridiculous. I don't care if you make less money on people calling me, I care about how much it costs for me to call out. If you are paying less for that I expect to pay less. Colluding bastards.If I make a mobile call from Vodacom to a Cell C customer, and Vodacom is paying Cell C 27.4c/minute less per minute for my call from today(vat included), surely I as the customer should be charged 27.4.4c/minute less for the call as well?
i.e I should be paying 15% less on my current package. That's a lot of saving to not be passing on!
Unless of course there is collusive behaviour between the operators - not overt collusion but rather a tacit co-conspiracy, or 'understanding' not to meddle with pricing.
