How to get more Mobile Data for less Money


Assuming that you are purchasing similar measure of prepaid data on a normal cost arrangement consistently, you are paying substantially more than you would on agreement or specific cost designs, a MyBroadband examination shows.

For clients whose requirements differ altogether from one month to another, purchasing prepaid data or top-up packs to match their present necessities will try not to squander cash on unused data

A client who knows roughly how much data they need consistently could profit from taking out an agreement that matches their base month to month data needs.

The uniqueness in paid ahead of time and agreement data costs was one of the issues tested during a Competition Commission request in 2019.

Vodacom and MTN concurred with the Commission to bring down prepaid data costs in 2020. This remembered customized limits to clients for low-pay regions.

While the decreases were huge, the examinations show that purchasing prepaid data consistently remains significantly more costly than deciding on the same sum in an agreement.

For example, you can purchase 10 GB of once-off data for R469 from Vodacom, which comes to R11,256 more than two years, though a two year 10 GB contract data SIM costs R3,576 over the entire time frame.

In this way, an contract would save you R7,680 over its period contrasted with purchasing similar measure of prepaid data.
