The fight over which mobile phone operator has the best data offering isn’t over.
Vodacom, South Africa’s biggest mobile phone operator, announced late Sunday that it is debuting new Social Ticket products, which offer up to four times the amount of data compared to standard bundles and are also priced for the best scenario, offering data bundles that are specifically tailored to the usage behaviour of the customer.
Vodacom’s Ticket bundles enable customers to access platforms such as Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, all through a single Social Ticket.
Vodacom’s Ticket value bundles will be available in one hour and one day options, as a subscription service.
Ticket will offer overall usage of a range of apps, through categorised Ticket bundles, to Vodacom Prepaid and Hybrid (Top-up) customers through the Just4U platform.
To buy a Vodacom Ticket just dial *123# from your Vodacom phone.

By partnering with app brands that customers enjoy the most, Vodacom is able to give customers access to what they love, for less, without the limitation of restricted data access to a single pre-assigned app.
For instance, customers looking to binge on the latest series on Netflix, update their tweeps on their tweleb lifestyles or even listen to that hot new track on Deezer can get their hands on Ticket bundles by purchasing a Ticket for any of the four available categories via Just4U by dialling *123# from a Vodacom Smartphone.
You may need to subscribe to services like Deezer, Netflix, Showmax, DSTV and VuClip if you don’t have an existing account.
“Vodacom Ticket will offer customers a simpler way of accessing data bundles for a range of categories, allowing them to stay within their data budget. Vodacom is continuously looking to deliver value for money offerings to our customers, and Ticket is no different,” Nyimpini Mabunda, Chief Officer: Consumer Business Unit, Vodacom, explains.
“Our customers can engage in the things they love the most without the fear of spending more than they wanted to. That is what Vodacom’s Ticket bundle is ultimately looking to achieve so watch this space as we continue to evolve the product.”
