Prepaid Data Packs
Inject innovation into your prepaid services and offer choice and extreme personalization to this important, dynamic customer segment
Brilliantly simple, “pay-as-you-go” data/prepaid mobile Internet plans provide customers with choice, flexibility, and cost certainty in only paying for the data that is used. The types of services that are available to prepaid mobile subscribers typically fall within the range of volume-based, time-based, device-based, or a combination of these factors for a fixed price.
Time based offerings are particularly popular as the value received by the subscriber is well understood. For the subscriber, plans that are marketed by the kilobyte (KB), megabyte (MB), or gigabyte (GB) create confusion as it’s difficult for the subscriber to quantify the value: how many pictures can I upload in 50MB, how many YouTube videos can I watch before my quota is exhausted, or how many hours of spotify can I listen to before I completely deplete my quota?

- Bite-size mobile internet plans for unparalleled choice & flexibility
- Bolt-ons that appeal to specific subscriber tastes

Success Story: Econet Knows Exactly How to Delight Their Customers

Success Story: Smart Communications Gets Mobile Customers Using Data
For many mobile subscribers, volume-based data charging isn‘t easy to understand. For Smart Communications, this meant that many of their customers weren’t using mobile data at all. Instead, they would jump between WiFi hotspots.
By introducing convenient, affordable, bite-size and time-based specific plans, Smart tapped into a new revenue stream by getting millions of subscribers to start using data.
