Mar 23, 2021 | By Dhivana Rajgopaul
“DURBAN — South African retailer, the Shoprite Group, will launch its own mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), called k’nect mobile next month.”
The mobile network has partnered with digital enabler FREI One Digital, and piggybacks off the mobile network infrastructure of Cell C, which has a roaming partnership with MTN.
k’nect mobile offers flat call and data rates, and no complicated tiers. The network’s airtime, data bundles and rewards only expire after 60 days unlike the usual 30-day expiry period.
