Cell C is looking to increase the amount of data provided to customers, so as to help keep people connected during the lockdown. While you’re certainly not paying much for Cell C’s All-In-One packages you’re also not exactly getting a lot.
During lockdown, it’s encouraging seeing service providers doing something to help users stay online and informed. While some ISPs like Vumatel have temporarily doubled line speeds to accommodate those stuck at home who need some form of entertainment, Cell C is also trying to do right by its clients. Just don’t expect a copious amount of generosity.
Announced in a press release this afternoon, to accommodate those isolated in this time of quarantine Cell C is doubling the amount of data included in the All-In-One package. The package, which is designed to provide the bare minimum amount of data, minutes and SMSs for a super low price, will only be doubling the data and will leave everything else as it was. Take a look for yourself:
Description All-In-One 30MB All-In-One 120MB All-In-One 300MB Bundle Fee incl. VAT R5.00 R15.00 R35.00 Validity Period (days) 1 14 30 Data (MB) Was: 30Now:60 Was: 120Now: 240 Was: 300Now: 600 On-net Minutes 30 300 600 Any-net Minutes 5 10 20
“Cell C has made these offers to help our customers during this very challenging time we all face as South Africans, for them to stay connected, informed and safe”,” said Hazel Chimhandamba, Cell C’s Executive Head of Marketing. 60MB of data for R5 might not seem like much but drop R195 on the package and you’ll get 2GB of data out of it. That’s… not bad at all.
It’s a decent option for those who can’t fork out R100 for a gigabyte of data over at MTN. At the very least, the package is exceptionally cheap so you could probably double up on purchases and make it last that much longer.
