Cellphone contract optimising company Tariffic have released their Q2 2015 “perfect package tracker” report helping you to purchase a contract which is best suited to your lifestyle. The report authenticates the true value of price and package values vs charges by local operators who offer postpaid contracts, using Tariffic’s proprietary tariff optimisation software.
Using life like examples of cellular contracts to pair with a user, they offer four hypothetical cellphone owner scenarios. A summary of the price and package changes by the networks over the last quarter is detailed below. Vodacom and MTN price increases In the past few months weve seen Vodacom and MTN hike their rates for many post-paid contracts. MTN price increases are the most impactful MTN also increased the prices of its data bundles, the overall effect of its rate hikes seem to be more impactful to users than Vodacoms. My MTN choice packages provide flexibility Because of the flexibility of MTNs My MTN Choice packages, the price changes often result in consumers having to re-align their entire package. Cell C offering less value on Straight Up The reason for this is that Cell C decreased the amount of data it offers with Straight Up packages by half.
