Save the Most, Comparing FNB Connect, Vodacom, Cell C and Telkom

FNB Connect Contracts

Since the 15th of June 2015, FNB has given the nation the choice of using a mobile voice data service called, the FNB connect product. This is the first time a bank offers any customer the chance to own its own SIM cards, since the SIM cards and devices are sold separately.

The user do not have to sign a contract for 24 months, but has a flexi contract option, letting you as a user the option on how long you want to commit to a contract. However, the biggest question of all remains: is it cheaper than the exiting mobile service companies are or not?

The proof is in the pudding, or in this case, the pricing. When looking at Data contracts, you see that on a 500MB data contract, FNB is the cheapest that only as R35, followed by Cell C and Telkom.
