8ta, South Africa’s cellular network offering by Telkom is the new kid on the block when it comes to mobile operators. Telkom is South Africa’s primary telephonic service providers, but until recently these have only been landline services. In South Africa, more people have a cell phone than have employment, which is why there is a huge amount of money invested in telephone communications. 8ta, pronounced Heita, is just one of those offerings. There are prepaid and contract packages available and because it is just starting out there are a number of specials available. If you are looking for a new mobile phone, or simply want to get a good deal, then it might be time to make the change.
The rates offered by 8ta, South Africa’s cellular network offering by Telkom. One of their excellent starting specials is that you can get a phone for ninety-nine rand. The fact that they are such a large service provider means that they can outdo other mobile operators and provide lower call rates and charges. Thus whether you choose prepaid or contract packages you are guaranteed to get a good deal and can conduct your personal or business telephone communications for a much lower rate. Heita might be new, but it is certainly shaking up the system for the three primary mobile service providers Cell C, Vodacom and MTN.
One of the coolest things about Heita is that it feels very South African. Its advertising is targeted at people from a variety of backgrounds and the graphic design is edgy and interesting. Mobile operators seem to have done it all, which is why it might be nice to see what a new provider can offer, particularly because it is a branch of a very old company known to many South Africans. The move away from landlines has been progressive, and it will be good to see what’s in store from 8ta, South Africa’s cellular network offering by Telkom.
