FNB Connect, the Internet Service Provider division of First National Bank, announced that they will be increasing the free monthly ADSL data for qualifying FNB cheque account customers from May this year.
Users of the free ADSL data package will now receive up to 5GB of data, which comes hot on the heels of an announcement by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) in the reduction of wholesale IP connect (IPC) costs to Internet Service Providers (ISP’s).
“It made sense for us to pass on the benefit of the reduction in the IPC costs directly to our customers. With this offer, as well as our free website browsing offers, we are essentially providing free internet data to thousands of qualifying FNB Customers,” says Farren Roper, Head of Products and Markets at FNB Connect.
MyBroadband also added “in addition to obtaining up to 5GB of free monthly ADSL data, FNB Connect registered customers also get unmetered data access to any FNB websites like FNB Online, FNB Connect and eBucks. Browsing on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube is also unmetered on ADSL between 7-11pm.”
