Telkom’s new contracts kill Vodacom and MTN’s

Telkom has launched its new FreeMe contract packages, which offer aggressive prices and simplify its product offering.

Subscribers will select the amount of data they want, and then pay for off-network calls.

Each contract includes free calls and messaging on WhatsApp, BBM, and Viber, as well as free on-network calls and 50 free SMS messages per day.

The contracts are priced as follows:

  • 1GB: R99
  • 2GB: R149
  • 5GB: R299
  • 10GB: R399
  • 20GB: R599
  • Unlimited: R999

Prepaid subscribers will be able to buy these packages as monthly bundles at the same price.

The free messages and calling on WhatsApp, BBM, and Viber are limited to 2GB of usage per month.

Free calls to Telkom Mobile and Telkom fixed-line numbers have a fair usage limit of 3,000 minutes per month.

The 20GB and Unlimited packages include free calls to other network operators, limited to 1,500 and 3,000 minutes per month respectively.

Out-of-bundle and top-up rates on FreeMe contracts are as follows:

  • Voice: R0.69 per minute, billed per second.
  • Data: R0.29 per MB.
  • SMS: R0.30 per message.

The contracts will be available from 25 July.
