Vodacom announces free 3G HSDPA upgrades

Due to the recent successful introduction of HSDPA to the South African market, Vodacom today announced that, effective 21 April 2006, any customer who owns a locally purchased Vodacom 3G Data Connect Card can visit any Vodacom approved outlet for a free swop-out for a 3G HSDPA Data Connect Card – dependant on availability of stock and proof of original purchase within South Africa.

Customers who upgraded to the HSDPA offering in the last month can receive a credit on their account by visiting their original point of purchase.

Vodacom’s HSDPA network offers users downlink speeds of up to 1.8 Megabits per second, which is faster than ADSL and up to 5 times faster than 3G.

Dependant on ICASA approval, the market can also look forward to further reductions in certain Vodacom data tariffs in the near future.
