First National Bank (FNB) says it will now offer a tablet to its customers for R99 per month,
The Lenovo Ideatab (A3000) includes 3G and Wifi internet connection, a 7 inch touch screen and long lasting battery life.
The tablet is paid off over a 24 month interest-free period, the bank said.
FNB said it has also introduced a Guru desk – a service centre that customers can contact to get help on anything from how to download the FNB Banking App, to how to set up their new device.
“We will continue to expand our range of devices to as many of our customers as possible, at accessible price points and teach them how to use their devices, so that we can ensure customers have access to our digital banking channels,” said Kartik Mistry, Head of Smart Devices at FNB.
FNB is believed to be close to unveiling its plans to launch its own virtual mobile network (MVNO). The bank has a telco license and as such is already able to provide voice and data services.
