Data service provider Afrihost has launched a prepaid package comprising both mobile data and voice packages at an affordable rate. Following a successful beta launch in November 2015, Afrihost’s Mobile with Voice products are now available to the general public.
The monthly package, comprising 50 minutes of talk time and 1GB of data, will cost R99 per. The first 1 000 subscribers will receive an additional 10GB at no cost in a launch promotion.
Prepaid clients will receive rates of 79c per minute on calls and 10c per MB on out-of-bundle data.
The new offering will provide several new features, such as Auto-Limit, which allows clients to control their out of bundle spend on airtime. Clients wanting to sign up for Mobile With Voice will have the following three options:
1. Port an existing contract or prepaid number to MTN prepaid
2. Sign up with an existing MTN prepaid number
3. Order a new Afrihost SIM (with new number) that is mobile ready. All Mobile With Voice products can be collected from Afrihost or delivered directly to clients (standard delivery terms and conditions will apply).
Afrihost’s launch products will feature voice minutes and mobile data with an option to purchase additional SMS bundles at affordable rates. All products and purchases can be managed directly via Afrihost’s ClientZone or on iOS and Android devices via the Afrihost App (including Topups, Package Changes, Call History and Data Usage).
Afrihost’s Prepaid Airtime will be available from R25 upwards and Prepaid Data will start from R49 for 500MB.
