The network is also adding an option for users to receive data depletion notifications at 50%, 80% and 100% “allowing them to actively track and manage usage”.
“This is part of FNB’s efforts to help customers make their money go further by enabling them to monitor and control their monthly data spend,” noted Len Pienaar, FNB Connect’s CEO.
FNB Connect subscribers are allowed two data transfers per bundle per month, while transferred data cannot be transferred again.
