SA’s 8ta announces unlimited voice all-net promotion
South African mobile operator, 8ta, has introduced the 8ta Unlimited Voice All-Net promotional offering, an unlimited voice promotion described by the company as a “first for the country”.
The 8ta Unlimited Voice All-Net promotional offering is a new 24-month contract plan. It allows customers to make unlimited voice calls to any mobile network, at any time, including 8ta, Vodacom, MTN and Cell C and fixed line networks Telkom and Neotel.
“Mobile voice services have fast become the communication medium of choice for South Africans on the move. Now for the first time the limitations of this medium has been removed. 8ta is enabling its customers to be connected like never before,” said 8ta Senior Managing Executive, Amith Maharaj.
8ta management says the offering is prone to abuse and the company has drafted and introduced several terms and conditions to help combat this issue. These terms and conditions include the offering is based on a SIM only plan (no device included) and is aslo available on handset deals, all existing once-off/ recurring Internet data bundles are available for purchas on the Unlimited Voice All-Net plan excluding promotional bundles and international and premium rated calls are excluded.
This promotion will be available from 1 November 2012 at 8ta flagship stores, Telkom Direct stores and Telkom Business for a limited period only. The company will not stipulate exactly when the deal will terminate.
The plan has a SIM only monthly subscription rate of R1 199.00 and a Samsung Galaxy S3 option at a rate of R1 499.00. These rates include VAT.
“8ta is driven to delivering the mobile solutions that South Africans are demanding. We know that voice has an important part to play in connecting people with each other. This offer is just another indication that 8ta is here to delver beyond the norm,” said Maharaj.
He added that the offering formed part of 8ta’s strategy upon its inception, but it had reached the ‘tipping point’ and had the capacity to now go aggressive on the network.
