Telkom is consolidating Telkom Mobile bundles and All Network bundles into one set of pre-paid options that will provide national coverage for subscribers.
The packages, available from today (22 June 2015), will provide consumers the benefit of national network coverage that includes roaming on the MTN network outside Telkom’s coverage.
Telkom is also cutting the prices of its pre-paid data bundles. A new mobile pre-paid data pricing structure as well as a reduced out of bundle data rate will be changed from R1 to R0.29 per MB for pre-paid customers.
“We have revised and simplified our data bundles in order to provide the best value and service to our customers. We believe everyone should have access to the data they need, when they need it,” says Telkom spokesperson Attila Vitai, Telkom’s MD: Consumer and Mobile Services.
Pre-paid mobile data bundles will be valid until the end of the next calendar month rather than the industry standard of only 30 days.
In addition, mobile pre-paid Internet bundles of 2GB + 1GB, 25GB + 25GB and the 60GB + 60GB have been replaced with the 3GB, 20GB and 50GB internet bundles respectively.
“With these changes and enhancements Telkom customers are able to surf anywhere, anytime, at a cheaper price, with data bundles that last for longer,” says Vitai. “This is consistent to our overall strategy of putting the customer first and providing the best options on the market.”
