Vodacom is currently investigating more convenient ways for their customers to purchase data, and will announce details about this initiative in the near future. This is according to Mostafa Elbeltagy, Vodacom’s managing executive for pre-pay.
Numerous Vodacom customers have been asking for pre-paid data vouchers, removing the need to convert airtime into data for more affordable data rates.
It is understood that many Vodacom customers are still paying high out-of-bundle data rates (R2.00 per MB), despite the fact that they can save lots of money by purchasing a data bundle.
A simpler data bundle purchasing method may therefore help to move consumers away from expensive R2.00 per MB data charges.
