Cell C has announced it will increase the price of its WhatsApp bundle from R12 to R15 on 1 February 2018.

Cell C’s WhatsApp bundle offers users access to WhatsApp for 30 days, with a fair usage limit of 600MB.

Cell C launched its WhatsApp bundle promotion in October 2014, which provided subscribers with free text, image sending, or voice messages over WhatsApp.

On 1 February 2017, Cell C increased the price of the WhatsApp bundle from R7.50 to R12 per month.

On 1 October 2017, Cell C changed its fair usage policy of its WhatsApp bundle to 600MB.
