CAE TOWN - Cell C has announced that it will be increasing the price of its products, which have taken effect since the 1st of July.

The changes affect several contract tariff plans and TopUp plans, including Pinnacle, Connector, StraightUp, Epic, SmartChat, ChatMore and more. 

Additionally, the company said that their newly introduced data-centric Pinnacle postpaid and top-up plans launched on 1 June are not affected by the price adjustments.

Cell C skipped the February price hike in 2018, but adjusted its prices when Treasury increased the VAT rate from 14% to 15% in April.
