Neotel has launched its data card, NeoGo, for consumers who are looking for a mobile solution.
The NeoGo data card offers customers up to 50% more data within bundle, plus an out of bundle rate of 8 cents per Mb. It operates on CDMA Rev-A (download speeds up to 3,1Mbps and upload speeds up to 1,8Mbps), comparing favourably with HSDPA connections.
Mukul Sharma, head of consumer & channel sales at Neotel, says the company is rapidly changing the way consumers experience its wireless communication.
"The NeoGo Data card with its large data bundle at a competitive price is just what the consumer needs and we don’t hide our out of bundle rate which at 8 cents per Mb redefines market pricing for data cards,” he adds.
NeoGo has two purchase options the first of which allows consumers to purchase the data card over a 24-month period with a monthly service fee of R299.00. The second option allows consumers to purchase the data card upfront for R1, 499.00 with a monthly service fee of R239.00.
Both purchase options include 1.5Gb of in-bundle data, a NeoMail Basic account, SMS capability and high-speed data.
“The data card offers consumers a simple and hassle-free method of connecting to email and the Internet. It is compatible with multiple operating systems such as Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Mac and the attractive price range gives it an edge over other existing data cards available in the market today,” Sharma adds.eotel is South Africa’s first converged communications network operator.
