Cell C plans to tackle data expiry concerns

Tuesday 15 August 2017 | 11:13 CET | News
South African operator Cell C plans to tackle the issue of expiring mobile data, CEO Jose Dos Santos told Rapport, adding that the operator was committed to doing the right thing. The move follows ICASA publishing proposed changes to the End-user and Subscriber Service Charter Regulations. ICASA wants mobile operators to warn subscribers when their data bundles are about to expire, block automatic out-of-bundle data billing, and let data bundles last longer.
