After offering three once-off data promotions to contract customers in order to stretch their data mileage over the holidays, Vodacom has now announced its latest data special.

The company’s new offer for contract customers, including its Top Up clients, sees the launch of a Broadband Standard MyGig 1 and MyGig 2 data contract promotion. This promotion runs from 7 February to the 6th of May and with it, Vodacom has broken the R100 price point on big data bundles, as customers will now pay R99 for 1 GB of data.

Vodacom’s Broadband Standard MyGig 1, 24 month contract has been reduced from R249 per month to R99 per month, giving customers a 60% saving, whilst the MyGig 2, 24 month contract sees a reduction in cost from R349 per month to R149. This promotional offer includes a free modem and normal out of bundle prices apply. There are no restrictions on the use of these data bundles, as these can be used during any time of the day.

“Our previous data promotions proved to be so successful that we decided to do it again. This time we’re giving savings of up to 60% to our customers. It is just the value proposition our customers are looking for at the beginning of the year,” stated Chris Ross, managing executive for Commercial Development at Vodacom.

“And as with all our data products, these promotional contracts will use Vodacom’s high speed data network with the broadest coverage across South Africa.”

Customers can visit their nearest service provider to sign up for a promotional Broadband Standard MyGig 1 or MyGig 2 data contract or Top Up data contract.

“We recently offered our prepaid customers a 20 GB promotion that offered them great value and now we are offering our contract and Top Up customers great value,” concluded Ross.  
In related news Vodacom also recently announced the successful implementation of phase 1 of a libraries project for internet connectivity across North West, Limpopo and Mpumalanga. When this project has been completed, almost 300 community libraries will be connected using VSAT (very small aperture terminal) and Vodacom ADSL services.
