We’re giving away FREE Mobile data, because #datamustfall

There’s an awesome movement on Twitter, it’s called #DataMustFall – and we’re with them!

While our Mobile data prices are already excellent value, we think we can offer everyone a bit more. You could say that the #DataMustFall movement has moved us, so we’re super excited to say that we’re bringing a solid revolution to the people!

Over the next week, running all the way up to Friday 23 September, we’re running a competition where you can stand a chance to WIN some Mobile data! We’re giving away 5GB of Prepaid Mobile data worth R395, and is valid for 12 months, Β every hour between 12:00 and 16:00, Monday – Friday. That’s 4 winners per day!

How do I enter?

You need to tweet @Afrihost and mention #datamustfall in your message. Include your own message with why it’s important, why you love us or what you’ll use the data for – that’s entirely up to you.

You’ll go into a draw to WIN the data. All you’ll need is an MTN contract or prepaid SIM and you’re good to go.


To sweeten the deal even more, SIX existing clients will be automatically put into a draw to WIN Mobile data for LIFE!* You heard that correctly, free data for life without having to ever worry about those pesky Mobile data bills.Β You’ll get your existing Mobile data package, for free, for LIFE!

So get tweeting, you won’t want to miss this!

If you don’t have Mobile data, you’ll probably want to sign up πŸ™‚


*By entering this competition you agree to our Terms and Conditions.

Due to SIM card provisioning, if a winner doesn’t have an Afrihost account they’ll need to sign up for a prepaid. This is a R49 once-off purchase and is required to receive the prize data.

The competition is for Twitter only.

    R0.01 = 1GB we refuse to pay more #DataMustFall

    riding on the tail of the storm njee, they don’t offer any prices much different from the two usual suspects.

    • Our Mobile Data is some of the cheapest in the market. R58 for 1GB is phenomenal value for money.

      • se-aramo

        can we buy it on prepaid just like any other mobile offer in the market?

        • Yes πŸ™‚ You can either purchase a SIM with us or use any MTN SIM.

          • se-aramo

            without any month to month contract, that’s what I am asking?

          • That’s up to you πŸ™‚ Our month to month option isn’t a contract, so you can cancel any time. But we also offer prepaid Mobile data which is valid for 12 months.

          • se-aramo

            i don’t want any month to month contract or whatever you want to name it, I just want to buy prepaid data just like I buy from any of the networks, okay.

          • We do have prepaid πŸ™‚

          • se-aramo

            where can I buy it?

          • There’s a sign-up link in the blog post which will take you to the packages πŸ™‚

      • oceanmaster

        Not even close ! I have done about 400Gb on Telkom uncapped for 799 this month so far..

  • Forever a clone

    Does the Data for life have an FUP? Is it 1gb free data per month for life? Will I be able to download 1Tb/month?

    • The free data for life covers whatever existing package you have with us, so whether you have a 1GB of 20GB Mobile Data package with us – we’ll give you that for free, every month, for life.

      • Forever a clone

        Should have taken the 20GB package xD. Thanks for clearing the questions.

    One day we will look at mobile prices, then to DSL (lets be honest in 50 years half the country will still be on DSL…sigh) and not cringe because one of the two is a ripoff.
