Best data deals in South Africa

Cell C recently unveiled their Giga 200 data promotion, offering 50GB peak data and 150GB off-peak data for R1,799 once-off.

Cell C also took the wraps off its Giga 20 data promotion; a 12-month contract deal which provides subscribers with 5GB peak data and 15GB off-peak data at R189 per month.

These data promotions are essentially festive season promotions, and are available from 8 November 2012 until 31 January 2013.
