Telkom launches new roaming Mobile Data Plans in South Africa

October 2, 2019 • Mobile and Telecoms, Southern Africa, Top Stories

Telkom announced on Wednesday, 2 October 2019, that it has officially launched new Mobile Data plans that hope to provide customers with data connectivity for internet access to emails, social media and streaming. The network provider says it hopes that these new data plans will appeal to ‘on-the-go’ consumers who move between Telkom and Non-Telkom coverage areas.

The main difference between the new Mobile Data plans and the existing SmartBroadband Wireless plans is that the Mobile Data plans allow for data usage on both the Telkom and roaming partner network, whereas the SmartBroadband Wireless (LTE) plans only allow for data usage on the Telkom mobile network.

“The target market for the new Mobile Data plans is the mobile individual, students and people whom require a secondary data connection while they are away from the office, home or not always within a Telkom mobile coverage area,” says Telkom.

Here is a closer look at what the new Mobile Data Plans will cost:
