“The demand for well-priced, high-speed broadband offers are ever increasing and Cell C has taken a knife to some of its most popular broadband offerings to offer customers exceptional value for money,” says Cell C Chief Executive Officer, Jose Dos Santos.

Cell C has significantly reduced the cost of eight of its most popular data offers – six contract and two prepaid options – with discounts ranging between 33% and 64%.

At the lower end of its product spectrum, Cell C has reduced the cost of its SmartData 5GB product, offering 5GB anytime data and 15GB Nite data inclusive of a Huawei E5573 LTE MiFi device, making data more affordable to new data entrants, from R199 per month to only R99 per month.   At the top end the SmartData 100GB deal, which offers 100GB anytime data and 100GB Nite data has been reduced to R999 per month, down 64% from R2799 per month.

“We realise that with LTE, customers can now download faster and require more data due to the high adoption of content streaming services and video on demand.  With this in mind we are now offering customers the benefit of great value at rock bottom prices to change their homes into smart data homes,” says Dos Santos.

On the prepaid side, Cell C will be offering its popular 100GB data deal, which is valid for 1 year for R999 once-off, down 60% from its normal R2499 price.

Current deals available on promotion until 31 May 2016 from any Cell C store and participating dealer:

“We have invested significantly in our LTE network, which is capable of service speeds of up to 70Mbps download and 35Mbps upload. This means that both consumers and businesses will enjoy fantastic speeds at greatly reduced prices when it comes to Cell C’s broadband offerings,” says Dos Santos.

    A positive development by Cell C.This will encourage competition for broadband prices and demand. M just concerned about the Network capacity of Cell C to cope with the demand particularly in the Township.Recently there has been a lot of development capacity wise(LTE, firbre rollout etc) by service providers in upmarket areas but no such development in the Township. This discrimination will constrain the uptake of cheaper broadband from this areas.Unless this can be addressed urgently, cheaper data prices wont provide any incentive to the residents of those areas.
