WhatsApp data bundle price changes in South Africa
10 May 2019
WhatsApp is the preferred mobile communication medium for many South Africans, and it has replaced SMS as the messaging service of choice because of its improved functionality and cost savings.
For many poor South Africans who cannot afford large data bundles, more affordable WhatsApp bundles are very popular.
The price for these WhatsApp data bundles has, however, increased significantly over the past few years.
Even Cell C, which pioneered free WhatsApp data bundles in 2014, was forced to start charging for the service and increased its price steadily in recent years.
