Telkom Mobile have laid the gauntlet down with their new competitive FreeMe package offering which looks to change the entire market. At first glance it looks too good to be true ie: 1st tier: R99 gets you 1GB data, 50 texts per day, free calls on Whatsapp, BBM and Viber as well as free on-netwrok calls. On the other end of the spectrum R999 gets you unlimited data and calls to any network. These packages have also been made available to Prepaid Customers as monthly bundles at the same price.
This looks to be perfect timing on Telkoms part just as MTN has implemented a massive price hike on the bulk of their Contract tariffs from 1st August 2016 (In some cases up to 40%). These new FreeMe packages will be made available from the 25th July 2016.
