We all know mobile data in South Africa is somewhat expensive, and as we are becoming more integrated as citizens we need to look for robust and affordable service(s) to gain access the internet and resources we need to survive, like banking services, electricity services, even security services.

Below we will summarize 3 ways in which you can stay connected at a reasonable price while doing business, travelling and may even cover some light entertainment at home.

Option 1. MTN Mobile Data Contract
This solution is geared towards the individual who has wifi at home and at the office, and needs not more the 24GB per month to do business and keep active online for communication during the week and while out on weekends.

MTN Mobile Data


Connect One, offers MTN Mobile data Contract(s), and have packages ranging from 500MB/pm - 24GB/pm and can be attached to any existing MTN mobile contract. This means that you will have regular voice service as well as an extended data service attached to the same sim. For non-dual-simcard phone owners this makes sense, especially if the user doesn't want to carry multiple devices.

As an example, if you have any one of the MTN MADE FOR ME plans, (See image below) you can easily attach up to an additional 24GBs to your sim card at a reasonable price. Therefore reducing your top-up spend on a monthly basis.

MTN Mobile


The Connect One MTN Data Plans are cheaper per GB then buying mobile top-up GB's as you use, some advantages about the service.

  • Great 4G connectivity across the network allows for great video calling and even streaming.
  • Usage notifications are sent via SMS so that you always know how much you have used, this is done at 50% usage, 80% Usage and 100% Usage.
