Following Vodacom’s newly announced data structure pricing, Cell C has thrown its hat into the data pricing wars ring, by launching its new bigger bundled broadband products.

On 1 August, Cell C will be unveiling its 10 GB and 20 GB packages to the SA market, with the aim of bringing the H+900 network to higher-demand internet users.

The 10 GB per month package, standard with either a 7.2 Mbps MyZone router or 21.6 Mbps Speed Stick, will cost the customer R499 per month on contract for 12 months, or R4999 once off on prepaid. The 20 GB per month package, also standard with a MyZone router or Speed Stick will be available at R899 per month on contract or R8999 once-off on prepaid.

Telkom-owned 8ta's new post-paid Internet 5 Promotion still offers better rates to subscribers though, with a 10 GB data bundle going for R199 per month with the option of an additional 10 GB Midnight Surfer data bundle at R100 per month for use between 12 am and 5 am.

Both prepaid packages from Cell C will also be available as “SIM only” variants at a R1000 discount. Customers that already own a Speed Stick or router will be able to purchase a 120 GB SIM (10 GB per month) for R3999 once-off, or the 240 GB SIM (20 GB per month) for R7999. Cell C’s out-of-bundle rate of 39c applies to these packages.

“Cell C has heard the call from SA consumers and small business owners to provide larger bandwidth products at competitive prices to help them meet their own day-to-day Internet access demands,” said Simon Camerer, Cell C’s executive head of marketing.

The two new products will be available to customers from the beginning of August from any Cell C franchise store and participating retail outlets.

“Coupled with our recently launched 3 GB once-off offer for R399, Cell C now has a comprehensive range of broadband products that cater for a cross section of consumer needs, enabling them to get the best out of Cell C’s new H+900 network,” concluded Camerer.
