The company's new data packages and tariffs are more expensive than its promotional offers that will end on 14 October.
Cell C has announced new data tariffs that will take effect from 1 November. The new packages are significantly more expensive than the promotional offers they will be replacing.
"Cell C fundamentally changed the mobile data market when we launched our initial data prices,” says Cell C executive head of marketing Simon Camerer.
“We have seen tremendous uptake of these packages, and customers have endorsed our top-class network speeds and prices. While our promotions are at an end, we are proud to announce that our new data products are still exceptionally competitive."
Customers will be able to choose between packages that include or exclude a speed stick or router.
For light Internet users, Cell C says it is introducing a new 1GB per month product for R1 999 once-off, including a 7.2Mbps speed stick.
“For those customers that already have a device, 1GB per month over a year will cost R1 499 once-off,” says Cell C.
During the promotional offers, customers paid R1 499 once-off for a 2GB per month package with a 7.2Mbps speed stick. The 2GB package will now be R2 999 once-off with a 21.6Mbps speed stick (or R1 999 without the device).
The 5GB per month package (60GB over a year) will also now cost R5 999 once-off with a MyZone router or R4 499 without a device.
Cell C says its traditional out-of-bundle rate of 39c/MB will apply on all these products.
In terms of contract packages, a 500MB per month package will cost R129/month and comes with a 7.2Mbps speed stick.
The 1GB offering will be R199/month with a 7.2Mbps speed stick. The 2GB package includes a 21.6Mbps speed stick for R299. Both packages include a WiFi router accessory.
Cell C will also offer larger postpaid packages aimed at small business owners of 10GB/month and 20GB/month, which will now cost R999 and R1 999 per month respectively.
The larger packages include a Cell C E586 router, capable of connecting up to 10 devices simultaneously with speeds of up to 21.6Mbps.
The promotional offers are still available until 14 October.
