Following its recent announcement of the new power hour promotion, local cellular operator Vodacom has launched its all-in-one smart plans for smartphones. These contract smart plans will be available from 7 July 2012, and include the smartphone, data bundle, talk time and SMS bundle.
According to Vodacom its all-in-one smart plans enable customers to select a suitable plan based around their needs. Data bundles are allocated upfront and at more affordable in-bundle rates (30c per MB), allowing subscribers to surf the web and download email, while also giving them the flexibility to add more bundles as and when required.
If you take a smartphone on the smart light plan for instance, you’ll pay R135 per month to get 95 minutes talk time, 100 MB of data as well as 100 SMSs. In addition, customers also get 75 off-peak minutes to make calls to any network and 20 promotional free anytime minutes to make calls to other Vodacom subscribers.
The company stated that all new connections, upgrades or migrations to smart plans until 6 September 2012, will qualify for free Vodacom to Vodacom minutes that can be used at any time, on peak or off peak.
These will be allocated monthly for the duration of the contract. Customers on smart standard, smart advanced and smart super will also receive Vodacom to Vodacom weekend minutes each month.
“Customers want a combination of quality network coverage, a broad range of smartphones to choose from and excellent service – and we’re offering them just that. We’ve invested over R7 billion on improving the network capacity over the past 12 months and this remains our key focus,” said Enzo Scarcella, managing executive of marketing at Vodacom.
