Cell C has lowered their current 66c per minute promotional prepaid offering to an all new 50c per minute call rate on pure per second billing. The new 50c rate will have the same structure as the 66c product, and SupaCharge benefits will not apply. There are additional data bundles available for customers looking to add data to this offering. Customers will benefit from a rate of 15c/MB or lower when they load a data bundle by simply dialling *147# and selecting option 4.

This promotional offer will be available from 25 July 2014 to 30 September 2014 from all Cell C franchise stores and prepaid partners. Existing customers can migrate to this tariff by dialling *147# or calling 141 from their Cell C mobile phone.

“We are exceptionally pleased to be able to continue to champion consumers’ right to affordable communication with the introduction of our new 50c per minute call tariff. It is really our way of thanking customers for taking up our offerings and a guarantee to them that we continue to fight for their best interests,” says Cell C CEO Jose Dos Santos.

Dos Santos further stated that: “This rate cut comes off the back of an overwhelming response we have had from customers to the original offering of 66c.”

Cell C noted that it will consider implementing this rate on a permanent basis once there is clarity regarding the Mobile Termination Rate Regulations.
