Vodacom, Vodafone’s South African subsidiary, is granting credit to its prepaid subscribers who run out of voice or data airtime.

In addition to a fairly stringent conditions (12 months’ usage, threshold top-ups, low credit limit) Vodacom is charging 10% interest on the advance. Principle and interest are deducted from the next top-up.

A Vodacom spokesman said a customer survey showed keeping in touch with family and friends was critical for prepaid customers, making it  “imperative” to stay connected.
