Vodacom Prepaid 79c 

Vodacom is the default plan for new and existing prepaid customers. With this plan, you can make calls any time at a flat call rate of 79c per minute. So, you’re billed per second. This means you only pay for the seconds you consume.

If you recharge for R10 or more, you’ll earn Talking points from the company. You can redeem Talking points for airtime bundles, SMS, MMS, and Data bundles, call discounts, and cellphones.

79c Tariff Package Rates
Local Voice Call (Vodacom to Vodacom) R0.79 per minute (billed per second)
Local Voice Call (Vodacom to other mobile networks) R0.79 per minute (billed per second)
Local SMS 50c per message

 Prepaid 79c plan doesn’t qualify for International calls, roaming calls, VAS calls, and premium-rated calls. Moreover, you need to purchase Vodacom data bundles separately to surf the internet.

If you switch to Prepaid 79c from other voice bundles such as Power Hour, Power bundles, My5, Chat for 30, Everyday Extra, or Night Shift, all these bundles will be fortified.

Daily Free Calls 

If you love talking more, the Daily Free Calls bundle is for you. You only need to pay for the first 3 minutes, and you get the rest of your call for free for an hour. This means you get guaranteed 57 free minutes on every call from Vodacom to Vodacom.

If you continue calling for the second hour, the billing will loop, i.e, you’ll be charged for the initial 3 minutes and the rest of the 57 minutes call from the second hour goes for free. The network itself terminates all calls after 120 minutes known as a 2-hour rule.
