Cell C reduces costs on data products

By Angelique Ruzicka

From this Sunday (1 October) Cell C will be introducing a range of new data products and promotions aimed at customers that use large amounts of data. The cell phone network provider said it was able to do this on the back increased data speeds available on its LTE network. 

“As a business, we try to ensure that customers get the best value on offer and we believe that these new products will fall into that category. Data is an essential part of people’s lives and we strive to ensure that we do all we can to meet our customers’ needs,” says Cell C CEO, Jose Dos Santos. 

LTE-A discounts and product range

Customers signing up for any of Cell C’s LTE-A data promotional deals before the end of December 2017 will enjoy discounts on their monthly subscription fees on the LTE data plans.  The 15GB LTE-A offer will cost R149 per month instead of R299 per month. The 25GB LTE-A deal comes in at R239 per month, down from R499 per month and the 50GB offer will cost R489 per month reduced from R699 per month. The larger bundles of 100GB and 200GB will cost R849 and R1100 per month respectively. 

The promotional prices will last for the duration of the contract term, but it is also available on a month-to-month offer. These are SIM only deals, but Cell C offers a range of routers that can be bundled with any of the LTE-A data deals at an additional cost.  These offers are available only on Cell C’s LTE and LTE-A network. Customers who are not in an LTE coverage area can still sign-up for any of Cell C’s standard data plans which offer great value. 

“With the festive season around the corner, customers are looking for the best possible data deals.   Whether you want to stay in touch with family and friends using WhatsApp or Skype, download the latest movies or stream your favourite shows, our LTE-A data deals will keep you connected and entertained for much longer at far less,” says Dos Santos. 

 Prepaid deals

Cell C is also launching a new range of permanent prepaid data deals.  These deals were available from last week (20 September 2017). 

“Some customers do prefer prepaid data deals and we have extended our popular Giga prepaid data deals to include smaller packages.  In addition to our 100GB and 200GB offers, we are introducing four new packages to make this fantastic product more accessible to a wider market,” says Dos Santos. 

The new offers are 10GB, 20GB, 30GB and 50GB and will cost customers R599, R799, R899 and R1099 respectively.  Customers pay once-off and the data is valid for 365 days. These deals are available across the Cell C network.  

“Cell C has invested significantly in its network to manage data demands, rolling out predominantly LTE-Advanced.  We now have close to 2600 LTE-A sites on air and plan to roll out a further 2500 LTE-A sites in the next four years,” concludes Dos Santos.

To get these deals visit any Cell C Franchise store, or go to its website or call the Cell C Call Centre on 140.
