DataMustFall: Vodacom Slashes Prices as MTN Users Must Wait Till Month End
By Sthembiso Lebuso |
The Competition Commission and Vodacom have come to an agreement that will see the communication service provider slashing data prices by up to 40% on April 1.
Meanwhile, MTN consumers will have to wait until the end of the month for the announcement on what they intend to do with their data prices.
Speaking at a joint press conference on Tuesday announcing the agreement, Vodacom Group chief executive Shameel Joosub said that: “From April 1, we will introduce a range of initiatives that will result in R2.7 billion in additional savings for customers. This forms part of a broader programme to create a social contract, which will address pressing societal challenges in our markets.”
