FNB Connect price hikes – The details

FNB has listed new pricing for its Connect cellular products, introducing price changes to its packages.

FNB Connect is the bank’s MVNO which runs on the Cell C network.

The new pricing is valid from 1 November 2018 to 30 September 2019, and includes new pricing for voice and data services.

FNB explains price hikes

Shadrack Palmer, Chief Commercial Officer at FNB Connect, told MyBroadband that the changes were part of FNB Connect’s first pricing review in three years.

It is harmonising its pricing for “out of bundle, once-off bundles, and recurring bundles across all voice, data, and SMS pricing plans”.

“This will help standardise the prices of these bundle rates for customers whether they are on Prepaid, Top Up, or Post Paid and simplify the price structure in the bank’s mobile offering,” said Palmer.

“The review is aligned with FNB Connect’s ongoing business strategy to ensure that its offerings provide superior value for money, increased customer satisfaction and legislative compliance while meeting industry standards. The revised prices remain competitive and customers may receive the added benefit of earning up to 15% back in eBucks on their FNB Connect purchases.”

“We remain committed to providing customers with added convenience that ensures customer satisfaction and lessens customer angst.”
