South Africans have Access to Affordable Data Thanks to Shoprite


The fast-paced digitalization has caused heightened demand for internet data. Unfortunately, because of the high cost of living, some people cannot acquire data at a cost-effective rate. To mitigate this problem, K’nect Mobile, a part of the Shoprite Groups’ cellular network, has decreased its data prices by over 35%. It has now been crowned as the most affordable data provider in South Africa.

According to Jean Olivier, GM: Financial services for the Group, “Shoprite is South Africa’s low-price champion, and that extends to our growing suite of fintech products which is driven entirely by customer needs.” 

The Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), which was launched two years ago, now has data prices starting from R19.50 for 1GB and can be found daily on the Money Market Account platform. Other options of 1GB for R39 and 2GB for R39 can be found on Checkers, Shoprite, Usave, House & Home, OK Furniture Stores, and LiquorShop.

The interesting feature of the K’nect data bundle is that typical data bundles usually last for 30 days, but the K’nect data bundle is scheduled to last for 60 days

K’nect also offers amazing call rates where each minute costs 50 cents for K’nect mobile to K’nect mobile numbers and 99 cents for 1 minute for other networks.

Customers registered on Xtra Savings can receive up to 20% free data and airtime whenever they recharge from the store directly while new customers will also enjoy ten minutes of free call time when they purchase their starter pack and RICA at any Money Market counter or till point found in the 1,500  Checkers, Usave or Shoprite stores Nationwide.

The partnership k’nect has with MTN, coupled with its use of Cell C’s mobile network infrastructure, has resulted in top-notch network services.

The company’s decision to reduce data prices is expected to draw in more customers and usher in healthy competition in the mobile data market in South Africa.
