Telkom gives Night Surfer bonus on selected data bundles

Telkom is offering free Night Surfer data bundles to certain Once-off All Network Data Bundles, from 26 November.

For every data bundle a customer buys of between 1GB and 10GB, Telkom will give the customer an equal Night Surfer data bundle at no extra cost. For example, if a customer buys a 1GB Once-off All Network Data Bundle, they will also receive an additional 1GB on Night Surfer Telkom Data, to use from 12am-7am.

"We're excited to be able to give Telkom customers even more value. Customers can use Night Surfer Telkom Data to update apps or download music or movies, freeing up their regular data bundle for their daytime priorities and keeping connected to family and friends," said Telkom Retail CEO Attila Vitai.
