SA Has A 'Right' to Cheap Data

Data cost remains a barrier to many South Africans accessing the Internet , argues Alfreds

According to Duncan Alfreds, data cost remains a barrier to many South Africans accessing the Internet and reducing that cost should be the priority, an industry insider insists.

In his article titled ‘SA has a 'right' to cheap data’, Alfreds echoes Kevin Hurwitza, Wonga.com chief executive officer’s view that, "Access to cost-effective data should be a basic right to consumers, not a luxury."

He argues that despite South Africa having the potential of six million cable broadband connections, there are only around 800 000 ADSL subscribers, adding that most South Africans who access the Internet, do so on mobile phones.
