Telkom Mobile and Vodacom are offering smartphone plans with unlimited calls, but Telkom Mobile’s offering is significantly cheaper than Vodacom’s.
- Vodacom Red for R1,999 per month: Limitless calls, Limitless SMSs and 1.5GB of data
- Telkom Mobile Unlimited Voice for R1,199 per month: Unlimited calls, No SMSs, No data
However, while Vodacom’s Red plan is more expensive than Telkom Mobile’s Unlimited Voice product, it offers unlimited SMSs, 1.5GB of data and a high end smartphone.
Telkom Mobile’s R1,199 Unlimited Voice service, in comparison, is a SIM only plan without any SMSs or data. The price increases to R1,499 with a Samsung Galaxy S3 and to R1,599 with a 32GB Apple iPhone 5.
Telkom Mobile is making the most of its cheaper rate, although it does not offer the same as Vodacom, in its new advertising campaign.
