“Customers have been looking for simplicity and for value, and Freedom 99 delivers exactly that. Calls to anyone, anytime, on any network in South Africa are now just 99 cents per minute with Freedom 99. It really is that simple,” said Vodacom’s marketing head, Enzo Scarcella.
Freedom 99 customers who recharge with R12 or more will also get 60 minutes free talk time every day for seven days to call Vodacom customers between midnight and 05h00.
Vodacom’s Freedom 99 will be available from Sunday 20 May.
