How to reduce your Mobile Data bill with Route404

We all Know mobile Data is expensive, especially if you buying airtime vouchers and converting it into data.

In fact, earlier this year it was reported that the The National Competitions Commission (NCC) had acknowledged the need for increased competition and lower prices across the entire communications spectrum. They are working with the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) to ensure that high mobile data costs in South Africa aren’t causing consumers to be ripped off.

That being said here’s one of the ways you can save data using MTN. So you have to methods of doing this.

  1. You must be an MTN contract subscriber. If you are an MTN contract subscriber the data service can be attached to your current number and you will be able to access the data through an APN provided.
  2. If you are not an MTN Contract subscriber, you can purchase a data only sim card and benefit from the bulk rate afforded as per the monthly contract.

If you are already I subscriber you can then go ahead and purchase yourself an additional Data service with Route404, All our data packages are provided VIA the MTN API.

Packages start from R72/pm for 1GB however top-up cost are the same as the standard MTN top-ups. The real value is to be had when you purchase packages greater than 2GB as the price per GB goes down the bigger the package.

So a typical scenario. Say you topping up 3GB a Month, on average you spending R97.0 x 3 =  R291 in comparison a 3GBpm package costs only R183.0/mo for 3GB. Which = R108 in saving! The math is clear. As an exercise check out how much data youre using on a month to month basis and see how much you could be saving with Route404.

Why your website needs a SSL Certificate
