No more free WhatsApp at Cell C

 

Cell C is adding a R5 WhatsApp bundle to its portfolio of products, giving its customers access to a month’s access to WhatsApp to a fair usage of 1GB. By Staff Writer


“For close to a year, Cell C has offered Free WhatsApp to customers and now that the promotion is coming to an end, we really wanted to give customers the best possible value on this service,” says Cell C CEO Jose Dos Santos.

The bundle will be available to customers from 1 September. For a R5 access fee customers will be able to send pictures, voice messages, videos and text messages via WhatsApp. The bundle will be available in a once off format or a monthly recurring format and will be valid for 30 days. Data rates of a customer’s tariff plan will apply if they don’t subscribe for the access fee.

“Cell C has seen such great success in our venture to embrace over-the-top players like WhatsApp, and we are pleased to now bring an incredible value proposition to our customers,” says Dos Santos.

Cell C’s Free WhatsApp is coming to an end

WhatsApp continues to be one of the most popular messaging services used on Cell C’s network and the company’s decision to support innovative technologies and bring down the cost to communicate culminates in this bundle.

“This is a permanent product and not a promotional offer,” says Dos Santos. The WhatsApp bundle will be available to all prepaid top-up and postpaid customers on the Cell C network.

Cell C is pleased to have worked with partners like WhatsApp and Facebook to find innovative ways to jointly ensure Cell C’s customers get the best value and an overall great communications experience.

While the Free Facebook promotion has also come to an end, Cell C customers can still access free Facebook and other web information services and portals through the Internet.org application.

Customers that download the Internet.org application or use the service on a browser will be able to use Facebook Messenger, post comments, view and share posts and view news feeds and profiles free of charge. Viewing and posting pictures, as well as, breakout Internet browsing, VOIP calling, Facebook videos, YouTube and Instagram will be charged at standard data rates or will deplete data bundles where available.
