Vodacom and MTN today announced that their customers are now able to make video calls to one another, across the Vodacom and MTN networks. The current video calling charge applicable to each network will apply for a limited period.
We are pleased that after extensive negotiations between the two cellphone companies one of the key benefits of 3G technology can be shared amongst the greater cellular base in South Africa. It is particularly pleasing that video calling will be available between the respective networks in time for the festive season.
Video calling allows customers to see one another when talking to each other, and until yesterday this service was limited to friends and family on the same network.
