FNB launches Cell C contract deals

Tuesday 22 November 2011 | 11:58 CET | News
South Africa's First National Bank announced that it now offers Cell C contracts with handsets at subsidised rates, MyBroadband reported. The mobile contract applications run through FNB's existing "account opening process," the bank said, adding that its branch systems have been integrated with Cell C's retail systems. Customers who open an FNB Smart Account in any FNB branch can qualify to enter into an exclusive Control Chat mobile phone package from as little as ZAR 39 per month which includes a handset, monthly airtime and SMS. In addition, customers will have the budget control of a prepaid account, that is, when they run out of their monthly airtime, they can recharge instantly using FNB's Cellphone Banking service. Deals are available on the Nokia X2-01, Nokia C3 and Samsung Galaxy Y. Pre-paid users make up around 85 percent of the South African market, according to the Nielsen Telecom Survey. Of these, 25 percent are likely to switch from pre-paid to contract packages within the next year. More than half (52%) of users own Nokia handsets, followed by Samsung and BlackBerry, and 56 percent of those using other brands indicated their next handset would likely be a Nokia.
