Looking for more data this Black Friday? We take a look at what South Africa’s big four networks — Cell C, MTN, Telkom, and Vodacom — are offering consumers this year.

Cell C’s Black Friday specials

Following the announcement of its MediaPlay contract packages earlier this year, Cell C is now “is doubling the inclusive anytime data for both MediaPlay Postpaid and MediaPlay TopUp customers who purchase a 24-month contract”.

In a release, the mobile network suggested that the offer is valid for any new subscribers or those upgrading, and will be valid until 6 January 2019.

“The double data will last for the full length of their contract and the data is for any Internet usage as streaming of content on black is zero-rated for Cell C customers until the end of February 2019, leaving customers to do whatever they want with the rest of the inclusive data,” Cell C continued.
