MWEB has announced the signing of an Access Point Name (APN) agreement with mobile service provider Cell C which will enable the ISP to offer its own customised mobile data packages to MWEB customers as of 29 October 2013.
MWEB ISP CEO Derek Hershaw says, “We are continuing to see positive growth within the mobile data market verses fixed-line market growth over the last few years and have been reselling 3G services for a while now.”
“The inter-network agreement with Cell C allows us to create our own 3G products and bundles according to our customer’s needs. MWEB customers will now benefit from first line support, competitive pricing, month-2-month contracts and no SIM card and connection fees.”
Jose Dos Santos, Cell C Chief Commercial Officer says, “Cell C welcomes MWEB to the mobile service landscape, and we gladly open our Cell C powered base stations and strong network to MWEB’s customer base.” MWEB’s customers will access MWEB data, powered through Cell C network towers, by making use of a Cell C dongle and SIM card. MWEB will now be able to provide direct support to its mobile data customers.
Hershaw concludes, “This agreement strengthens the existing relationship we have nurtured with Cell C over the last year. We are excited to secure this agreement with Cell C to the benefit of our customers. With mobile data rates reducing significantly we are now able to provide our own solutions to customers that are competitive and affordable. We look forward to providing our extensive customer base with a complete solution – MWEB ADSL and MWEB Mobile data – to extend and enhance their fixed and on-the-go internet experience.”
