Cell C & Capitech are South African friendly, Wake up South Africans...

01 April 2014, 11:58
You would have predicted 15 years ago, that in all the years to follow, We would pay so much to make simple telephone calls and so much more each year for simple banking?
With an internet connection we can all skype with a video to ad for free...
Aside from cost of internet connectivity being way too expensive in SA, It is by far cheaper to skype, cell phones are just too expensive.
But here we have our newest Cell Phone operator, new management and all, But these guys have managed to reduce the cost of a call nearly 3 times.
They offer a R 500 package where you can make unlimited calls .
Buy 100 airtime, you get 100MB of data, free..
Buy just R 10 airtime and you get 10 MB free..
Cell C has taken a logical and brave step in a decent market totaling over 50 Million People.
We need to all change to CELL C, take the greedy pigs out of the market, Let them crash.
Lets teach Vodacom and MTN a lesson,that can spend Billions on advertisement and sponsorship and then take ICASA to court, fighting and defending their high tariff's and rates.
People complain about reception, I assure you if we all migrate, CELL C will be the only connection.
As for banking, It is not easy to change your bank, we get familiar and we struggle to make the change.
ABSA has ripped me off for years, high rates, enough to write a small book about the indecent amounts I have paid over the years.
My Fiance pays nearly nothing at Capitech, they too deserve more loyalty from SA citizens. The more that Join, the more branches open.
Why do we continually support brands that are not South African friendly ?
These companies take our money over seas, we enrich people that do not care about you or me.
Lets respond to Capitech and to CELL C,
Once you make the change, it is easy to tell others and remind them to tell others too.
We can sink MTN and Vodacom  , We do not need them.
We should all be talking for less people.
Wake up, Migrate to Cell C,
Open a Capitech account.
This is a good place for anyone to start, You can make a difference, Stop supporting thieves...

A captured Public Protector?

The new public protector has very clearly already nailed her colours to the wall, and the signs are there that Zuma was right in pressing for the report on state capture to be handed over from Madonsela to Mkhwebane.  Read more...
