Afrihost has just announced that it’s teamed up with Xiaomi to offer customers Mi smartphones in a wide range of data bundles.
Punters who take advantage of the phones on offer – which range from the Redmi 2 8GB model all the way up to the Mi5 – will receive an Afrihost sim loaded with free data every single month. Yes, you read that right.
“This FREE(sic) Data is a gift from us to you, there are no catches, no obligations, no contracts, and no credit checks,” Afrihost said in a press release, “Plus, all launch Mi Smartphones are Dual-SIM devices, giving you the best of both worlds by allowing you to keep your existing phone number and SIM Card, while enjoying Free and Cheap Mobile Data from Afrihost.”
Whether the move comes in the wake of the rather decent interim reports this week from Vodacom and Telkom or whether the ongoing calls for #DataMustFall are having any effect, Afrihost isn’t saying. The phones and deals on offer are as follows:
|Redmi 2 8GB||R1799||500MB PM x 12|
|Redmi Note 2||R2799||500MB PM x 12|
|Redmi 3 32GB||R3299||500MB PM x 12|
|Mi Max||R4699||1GB PM x 12|
|Mi5||R7999||2GB PM x 12|
Afrihost is also offering FREE (their caps not ours) delivery to anyone who wants to take advantage of this offer. To do that, head on over to the Afrihost site where you can place your order.
