They said it could’ve been slashed even further, but consumers have for now accepted a 34% reduction in Vodacom’s data prices.
Yesterday, it became the first network giant to comply with the Competition Commission’s call to lower data prices.
Morné Grewe said he was happy a decision has finally been made: “It will make a difference for many people.
“Even though it’s by 34%, it is a step in the right direction.
“It will make a difference to people and they won’t be spending so much per month on data.”
Beronisha Cloete said she found Vodacom to have good coverage but high prices: “I have never had any real problems with them.
“It can be a little lower, but it is what it is and we accept it.”
Nomzamo Balangile said the price reduction would allow her to buy data more regularly.
“I don’t always buy data because it’s expensive, but now maybe I will be able to buy more times a month,” she added. “I am glad they are lowering the price.”
