Data bundles could last up to 6 months

By News24

Mobile data users may soon no longer have to worry about their data bundles expiring, following regulation amendments by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa).

In its Draft End-user and Subscriber Service Charter Amendment Regulations published last week, amending its 2018 regulations, Icasa said data bundles must remain active for six months before they expire, excluding promotional packages.

The amendments also require mobile operators to “apply data usage against the oldest of any unused data, until that data is depleted, and thereafter against the newly allocated data”.

Written submissions on the amendments will close in next month.
