Cell C Slashes Data Prices By 64% Despite Growing Competition


Good news to South African internet users, South Africa’s third largest mobile network Cell C has slashed its data prices for broadband despite the increasing market competition and growth from its rivals.

There’s a lot happening around the world particularly in our country which no one would want to be left out on. But this cannot be possible if we have high data prices with low internet speed. And thanks to technology, no one is forced to stick to a particular network service.

By slashing its data cost by 64%, Cell C has revealed it’s still the best value to mobile contract customers. The junior operator announced its aggressive reduction in mobile broadband offerings in major metros as people increasingly demand data at lower cost.

According to Cell C Chief Executive Officer, Jose Dos Santos, the demand for well-priced, high-speed broadband offers are ever-increasing and Cell C has taken a knife huge chunk off its most popular broadband offerings to offer customers exceptional value for money.

Cell C has therefore significantly reduced the cost of eight of its most popular data offers – six contract and two prepaid options – with discounts ranging between 33% and 64%.

“We have invested significantly in our LTE network, which is capable of service speeds of up to 70Mbps [megabits per second] download and 35Mbps upload,” Dos Santos explained.

Its prepaid offer which will be valid for one year, has a SIM only option of 100GB for R999 with an additional 100GB of free data valid from 00:00 to 06:00 (Nite data).

Cost of data for SmartData 5GB product has been reduced, offering 5GB anytime data and 15GB Nite data inclusive of a Huawei E5573 LTE MiFi device, making data more affordable to new data entrants, from R199 per month to only R99 per month.

Also, SmartData 100GB deal, which offers 100GB anytime data and 100GB Nite data has been reduced to R999 per month, down 64% from R2799 per month. This offer will be available on promotion until 31 May 2016 from any Cell C store and participating dealer

“We realize that with LTE, customers can now download faster and require more data due to the high adoption of content streaming services and video on demand. With this in mind, we are now offering customers the benefit of great value at rock bottom prices to change their homes into smart data homes,” says Dos Santos.
