Vodacom has announced that its 79c per minute prepaid voice calls promo, which was supposed to end yesterday, has been extended to 19th October, giving customers an additional four months to enjoy the lowered call rate according to MyBroadband.

Vodacom launched 79c per minute on 1st May, soon after MTN launched it own 79c per minute promo, with Cell C following soon after with a lowered call rate of 66c per minute. Vodacom’s promo offers customers a local call rate at 79c per minute to any network, SMSes charged at 50c to cellphone networks, 90c to Telkom landlines and R1.74 internationally.

While the extension is good news for Vodacom customers, making the call rate permanent would be even better as MTN and Cell C registered their new lowered call rates permanently when they launched.

Customers can opt in by either visiting Vodacom’s website, dialling *111# or calling 1181 and following instructions.
