fringsters listen up.  CellC just announced their new 21Mbps mobile broadband rates.

The rates are as follows:

  • Prepaid: R2,999 gets you a modem capable of 21.6Mbps & 5GB of data monthly for a period of 12 months.
  • Contract: 21Mbps connection with 5GB of data per month for R299 per month

At only 5c per MB, this is not only the cheapest mobile broadband available in South Africa, but also the fastest.  It’s going to be interesting to see how the other networks respond.

At those rates you can make an hour long (60min) fring video call for only R3.00 just think of the possibilities.

So what are you waiting for why not make the jump before they change their minds. You may want to check if your area has 21Mbps coverage before making any rush choices,  the coverage footprint is still rather small.

Exploiting eco energy is a great way of protecting the environment. Few mobile networks have gone this route and Vodacom today showed their commitment for the environment by launching the VF 247.

This low cost solar powered cellphone, which has the ability to charge on the go is something that many are calling unique. We at fring think this is genius and selling for only R339.00 this device makes for a great emergency handset.

Designed with an integrated solar panel, users can now charge on the go. Apparently it takes only an hour or two to fully charge this device using nothing but solar energy from the sun. This is not only a huge saving on the environment but will also save consumers  time and money.

“In many communities, electricity supplies are intermittent or non-existent, but with this new handset, people won’t have to worry about when they are next going to be able to charge the battery,” said Joosub.

“It’s so simple and obvious, but the combination of solar power and a low-cost handset will hopefully make a big difference.”

The VF 247 comes with all the basic Voice and text features.  It also has a FM radio, a colour display and a built in torch.

We can’t wait to see a high end smartphone using tis same eco power source in future ;-)
