Uys was addressing a question about whether offers such as the flat-rated (or bundled) Internet service available to BlackBerry users would be coming to other smartphones on Vodacom.
Apart from its three-month R149 for 2GB data promotion, Vodacom has not launched a data special which rivals offerings seen from Cell C, MTN and 8ta.
Quizzed about whether they would be launching more promotions, Uys said that we’d see more promotions: “Christmas is always a good time to have promotions,” Uys said, highlighting that they have launched new “Mofaya” promotions for summer.
Uys said that we’d see more and more bundled services in future, and that it won’t be just from Vodacom, or South Africa, but that it is a worldwide trend.
Asked whether these bundles would include a fair amount of monthly data, Uys said that he couldn’t reveal what the bundles would contain, but that there would be “nice goodies in the bundle.”
