Qualifying FNB cheque account customers will now receive up to 5GB of ADSL data on a monthly basis.
The FNB announcement follows the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) decreasing in the wholesale IP connect (IPC) costs to Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) by 30% as of 1 April 2012.
“It made sense for us to pass on the benefit of the reduction in the IPC costs directly to our customers. With this offer, as well as our free website browsing offers, we are essentially providing free internet data to thousands of qualifying FNB Customers,” says Farren Roper, Head of Products and Markets at FNB Connect.
In addition to obtaining up to 5GB of free monthly ADSL data, FNB Connect registered customers also get unmetered data access to any FNB websites like FNB Online, FNB Connect and eBucks. Browsing on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube is also unmetered on ADSL between 7-11pm.
To redeem the free data, customers are required to register on the FNB Connect website. Qualifying customers will have the data automatically allocated to their accounts.
