Telkom has launched a selection of new mobile data plans which can be used on both Telkom and Vodacom’s network.
These offer a better solution for customers in areas without Telkom coverage than the recently-overhauled SmartBroadband Wireless plans, which can’t be used when roaming on Vodacom’s infrastructure.
“The target market for the new Mobile Data plans is the mobile individual, students, and people who require a secondary data connection while they are away from the office, home or not always within a Telkom mobile coverage area,” Telkom said.
Telkom said the anytime data for each plan can be used on both the “TelkomSA” and “TelkomSA-R” networks, and has a validity period of two calendar months.
“Unused inclusive data will be depleted first before the new monthly data allocation starts being utilised,” Telkom said.
Night Surfer data will only work on the Telkom network between 00:00 and 07:00, and is valid for a single calendar month. Night Surfer data is also non-transferable and does not roll over to the next month.
An out-of-bundle rate of R0.30 per MB applies to these new mobile data plans, and the anytime data can be transferred to other users at no charge.
Below are the prices for Telkom’s new SIM-only mobile data plans. The plans are also available bundled with MiFi devices at an extra charge.
