Special offers cost the youth of South Africa thousands of lost Job opportunities. The need and thirst for data are so strong that people will happily switch numbers to get free data offers.
Seems harmful enough.
Except, when you realize it is costing job opportunities to thousands because the old number that they had on a CV or with a training institution no longer reaches them.
Swapping SIMs in phones also risks missing that job opportunity. Often people have two SIM because one network offers better voice rates and the other offers better data rates.
Your digital identity is strongly linked to your cell phone number. No R50 special offer for data is worth missing that golden job opportunity for.
Free WiFi is the solution to this problem. It allows the users to get data for free rather than chasing after special offers. Our portal also guides users to set up an email account so that they can always be found for that job opportunity of a lifetime
Thank you to Mary Robinson of Vuleka for bringing this to our attention.
