SMS bundles are slowly becoming less relevant, and thankfully networks are well aware of this.

Speaking of which, Telkom on Tuesday announced it will be selling Social Bundles for those who’d rather keep in touch via DMs.

Telkom’s Social Bundles are effectively data bundles exclusively for use on social networks.

Not every social network is included, though. Telkom lists “Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Pinterest and TikTok” as the services supported.

The likes of YouTube, WhatsApp and Telegram are not included.

How much are Telkom’s Social Bundles?

Telkom’s offering a total of 18 options valid across three time periods: daily, weekly or monthly.

The cheapest bundle will last for 24 hours, giving users 25MB for just R1. The most expensive daily bundle, giving users 500MB to use within 24 hours, will cost R15.

The cheapest weekly bundle, valid for seven days, will offer users 75MB at R5. Users can also get 2GB for R60 in its most expensive guise.

And finally, for those wanting data valid for 31 days, 100MB can be had for R10. R100 will give users 3GB to spend for the month.
