Cell C announces new lower international roaming rates

Mobile group Cell C has announced new reduced international roaming rates to 58 countries, covering 99 networks.

The new rates, which will kick in from 13 September, will see customers roaming on any of the countries listed pay a standard R10 per minute for making and receiving calls, R10 per MB for data, and R2.99 per SMS on certain networks in these countries.

The only exclusions to these are:

  • Emtel Mauritius, where customers will pay R20 per minute for calls and R20 per MB for data
  • Netone Zimbabwe, where customers will pay R15 per minute for calls and R15 per MB for data

Cell C advised its customers to manually select discounted networks when roaming, to ensure that they always pay the lowest possible roaming charges.

It also directed customers to its International Roaming page for more information.

“Cell C also continues to offer Wi-Fi Calling as an alternative to roaming, a service that turns any Wi-Fi hotspot into a Cell C base station, effectively allowing customers to make and receive calls as if they were in South Africa, while they are traveling abroad,” it said.
