Vodacom has announced two new prepaid packages that significantly reduce call rates, offering what the company believes are the best all-day and on-net peak prepaid rates in the market.
From 1 October 2009, prepaid customers will be able to choose between Vodacom’s existing and new packages.
“While we have not had a tariff increase for more than six years, we are lowering prepaid peak rates by up to 35%," says Shameel Joosub, MD of Vodacom SA. "We believe it’s imperative in the current economic downturn to give our customers more choice and more affordable rates."
With the All Day package customers will enjoy the best prepaid all-day rates available. All Day calls are billed per second with an on-net (Vodacom to Vodacom) call rate of R1.85* per minute (3.1 cents per second), and an off-net (Vodacom to other mobile networks) rate of R1.99* per minute (3.3 cents per second) – all day.
Prepaid customers will also save with the new Per Second Plus package, with up to 16% discount on calls during peak time and a newly extended off-peak time from 7pm to 7am.
Vodacom Prepaid customers can also choose from Vodacom’s 4U Prepaid and Yebo4Less tariff options to suit their individual needs.
