With the World Cup in South Africa just over a week away, England footie fans will be packing their bags and heading off in the hope of victory. To celebrate this sporting event, 3 has dramatically cut their data roaming charges for South Africa. During the World Cup months of June and July, customers of 3 will see the cost of their data roaming charges cut by more than 50%, be it on their smartphone or dongle, with one megabyte costing just £1.25, meaning they’ll be able to keep up with all the news and goings-on on the web.
In addition, 3 is also cutting its voice roaming charges by 30%. Customers of 3 will be able to call anywhere in the world from South Africa for just £1.40 per minute, text for 35p, send an MMS for 35p and receive calls for just 99p per minute.
3’s reduced roaming rates will be implemented automatically, but will only last until the end of July.
