Vodacom has announced new flat rates for customers travelling to African countries where Vodacom and Vodafone operate, SA Tourism Update reports.
These countries include the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique and Tanzania.
"Vodacom is leveraging its presence to provide customers who travel to these countries with reduced rates applicable across the Vodacom and Vodafone networks," said Romeo Kumalo, Chief Commercial Officer of Vodacom.
The flat rates have resulted in roaming data rates being reduced by more than 70% and, in addition, roaming customers will also enjoy free incoming calls when they travel in these countries.
These rates only apply when roaming on the Vodacom Lesotho, Vodacom Mozambique, Vodacom Tanzania, Vodacom DRC, Vodafone Ghana and Safaricom Kenya networks. The reduced rates will automatically apply to all customers who are roaming on these networks.
Standard roaming rates will apply if roaming on a non-Vodacom or Vodafone network in these countries.
