Vodacom is offering its contract customers free calls from 1 May.
Users will receive ip to three hours of free calls over weekends and weeekday nights to call other Vodacom customers.
“We are giving our customers more value without increasing their monthly subscription charges,” says Shameel Joosub, MD of Vodacom South Africa. “For example: a customer who subscribes to a Talk 240 Contract package can choose to receive 60 free minutes to use over weekends or 30 free minutes to use during weekday evenings, to call other Vodacom customers, at no additional cost to them.”
The allocation of the monthly More Minutes bundle will default to weekend minutes, although customers will be able to change them to weekday evening minutes if they prefer.
Vodacom has also reduced selected peak call rates and simplified out-of-bundle call rates on contract packages, to include two rates that apply all day: one rate for calling Vodacom customers and another for calling customers on other networks.
