I agree with you about Holla, they should have just worked on refining this offer, maybe even introduce weekly and monthly Holla, is bundled voice sms n data., then make Freedom bundles to be data only, even 4G only bundles, and make spoil us with lots of cheaper data options.
These guys didnt think this through, think al be going back to Airtel now
Talking of which, remember Yu Mobile guys? got a line from a friend who says they don’t use it anymore. Being curious if it still works I put it on my phone and checked the data offers that are available. The bundles are mostly the same as the normal airtel ones, from he daily 1GB to unliminet., but theres a category called “Amua data bundles” where theres a “Daily Unlimited” daily offer at 39 bob.
U can only imagine the grin on my face when i first saw that
Apparently I first had to be subscribed to a special tariff called Amua_Airtel, something that was to happen automatically when Airtel took over the Yu lines ti it’s network, but coz the line was off at the time of the switch that didnt happen. It now had to be done on customer cares side and had to wait two weeks for that to happen.
After some agonizing two weeks they notified me via Twitter that the switch had been done. I loaded airtime and subscribed. Found out that the offer isn’t completely unlimited, you are given 460MBs valid for 24hours, and even after the 460MBs are used up you still cannot connect to the internet, even though customer care said I would be able to but at slower speeds
I find this offer to be sweet though, 460MBs daily at 39 bob., even better than XL daily 400mb at 50 on Telkom, minus the 4G network
