Vodacom Drives Financial Inclusion with Affordable Smartphone Offers

South Africa’s leading telco has launched a new affordable prepaid device offering for Vodacom customers that will see barriers to entry for more aspirational smartphones fall by the wayside.

The high price of smartphones has long been an inhibitor for the majority of prepaid customers.

Vodacom has taken an active step in driving financial and digital inclusion by now providing such customers with the opportunity to purchase a 4G smartphone with an option to pay over a period of 12 months with zero interest.
