Telkom’s FreeMe packages are the top choice for high data and voice users in South Africa, according to an analysis by Tariffic.
The cellphone spend-optimisation company stated that the SIM-only FreeMe deals are the best choice for a range of South African smartphone users.
“Tariffic analysed the cellular behaviour of three different user profiles to calculate the cheapest SIM-only contract for each type of cellphone user, across all major mobile network operators in South Africa,” it said.
The results of the analysis show that Telkom’s FreeMe packages are the top recommended and cheapest package for all three of the user profiles.
“The FreeMe packages are dominating the market, saving these users an average of 24% a month compared to the next best option.”
Each FreeMe 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, based on data allocation, are priced as follows:
- 1GB: R99
- 2GB: R149
- 5GB: R299
- 10GB: R399
- 20GB: R599
