Cell C zero-rates university website access
Cell C will offer students from universities across the country free access to university websites in a bid to assist them to access course material necessary to complete the year.
“We know students are facing a tough time at the moment, and many need to gain access to course material through their university’s online portal in order to complete their academic year. Zero-rating access is our way of assisting students,” says Cell C CEO, Jose Dos Santos.
Cell C is in the process of contacting universities and will implement a reverse bill on their website URLs. Cell C will absorb the cost to allow students to access academic content for free. This means that even if students are off campus, they will be able to access the university website at no cost. A list of the participating institutions will be updated and published on Cell C’s website.
“Cell C will ensure that this service is available to students until the end of the academic year,” says Dos Santos.
