Afrihost Mobile 10GB deal – how cheap is it really?

Afrihost unveiled its latest mobile data prices on 2 September 2013, which include a 10GB pre-paid mobile data product for R197.

This 10GB mobile data deal offers the best ever month-to-month price in South Africa. The product also removes the risk of shocking out of bundle charges because it is capped.

Afrihost promised subscribers that the R197 for 10GB price is guaranteed until 30 November, after which the offer will be revised or extended.

This raises the question of how Afrihost’s new mobile prices compare with similar products in the market. For this comparison MyBroadband used pre-paid and contract products from the major operators.
