Me&you mobile launched in South Africa

Mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) me&you mobile launched in South Africa on 4 May, offering mobile voice and data services on a month-to-month basis.

Focusing on SIM-only deals that are available exclusively through its website, me&you boss Brett Howell said the operator addresses what consumers have been crying out for.

“Me&you mobile was born out of the frustration that people have with mobile networks – expensive packages, complicated contracts that locks one in for 24 months, and poor customer service,” said Howell.

Me&you will roam on Cell C’s network, is owned by the Durban-based Ignition Group, and receives infrastructure and billing support from MVN-X.

MVN-X offers a platform to help businesses launch MVNOs, and is headed up by former Virgin Mobile boss Steve Bailey. Virgin Mobile was the first MVNO in South Africa, and also ran on Cell C’s network.

MyBroadband ordered a SIM through me&you’s online portal, and the process was easy.

Among the deals on offer from me&you is an introductory package giving unlimited mobile voice calls for R300 per month.

The launch prices of me&you mobile’s packages are summarised below.
