Vodacom is looking to bring some festive cheer to its contract clientele, as the company has announced three different promotions that will provide them with significant data cost savings.

New customers signing any 24 month data contract will receive the first three months’ subscription for free, with this promotion being in effect until 6 February 2012. In addition, Broadband Standard MyMeg500 24 month contracts signed during December 2011 will be available for only R99 (incl. VAT) per month. This contract promotion for new contracts signing up this month is immediately available and will run until 9 January 2012.

With an automatic additional 500 MB of Night Owl data (from midnight to 5 am) included, Vodacom subscribers get an effective 1 GB of data at R99. The company stated that as the normal price of the Broadband Standard MyMeg 500 is R149 a month, this promotion gives customers a 33% discount. However, customers signing up for the Broadband Standard MyMeg 500 promotion will not qualify for the three months free subscription promotion.

40 GB @ R499

Vodacom will give 20 GB (anytime) + 20 GB (Night Owl) data for R499 to contract subscribers at an effective rate of 1.2c per MB. According to Vodacom, this MyGig 20 once-off bundle provides its clients with a saving of 86%, is now available until 9 January 2012 on both Broadband Standard and Broadband Advanced.

Chris Ross, managing executive for commercial development at Vodacom stated: “Over the festive season most people have increased expenses with holidays and gifts. So we’ve come up with these fantastic value offers which will put money back in the pockets of our customers.”
In related news Vodacom also announced a promotion last month which sees data costs for prepaid and Top Up customers reduced by 87%. This promotion introduces Vodacom’s lowest per megabyte prepaid mobile data price of 2.4c.
