      Just an observation from my side; In 2017 Cell C announced that their WhatsApp bundles cost 60% more – up to R12 from the previous R7.50. It was R20 this year (2019) and this morning they announced that it will increase; yet again from 5th June to R29. I find this very scary indeed.

      • I saw cartblanche and apparently criminals are stealing back up batteries in cellphone towers. So the cost of preparing them is possibly reflecting in these price increases
        • Perhaps. But Government seems to be trying to hard to be lenient on this network providers. Sure they are getting broadband cheaper than they are selling to the customer

This is pretty obvious, but consuming lower ABV drinks means you’re less likely to get trollied and do something regrettable – if…[Read more]
