FNB Connect has revealed that in the last 12 months, its SIM users who have qualifying FNB and RMB Private Bank accounts have received nearly R300 million in free data and voice minutes.

“We continue to see an increasing number of individuals and families who use FNB Connect as their preferred telecommunications provider, for which we have been recognised as the joint winner of the Digital MVNO of the year at the Global MVNO Awards. FNB Connect was the first MVNO in SA to use the capabilities of a financial services platform to integrate telecommunications to enable customers to port, maintain and manage their SIM on the FNB App. Since then, we’ve greatly increased our digital offering to democratise access to affordable smart devices, data and airtime packages, thereby narrowing the digital divide,” says FNB Retail CEO, Raj Makanjee.

FNB Connect recently introduced a wireless LTE data offering that gives customers access to larger data bundles at affordable prices.

Bradwin Roper, CEO of FNB Connect adds, “The growing data demand and sharing of data makes LTE plans a perfect offer with offers starting from as little as R89 for 5GB. This caters for either a single user on a smart device or family/shared usage through a router. Furthermore, we continue to offer flexible month-to-month packages; some of the most competitive data and voice packages in the market, plus additional rewards of free data and voice minutes. Our leading unlimited Talk Max offering, where customers generally use about 900 minutes, only costs R325. In the market, this would cost customers about R1000. Furthermore, FNB customers are also able to use their eBucks to buy airtime.”

FNB also recently launched Hero Deals, allowing customers to save big on the latest laptops, tablets, and smartphones from popular brands like Apple, Samsung, and Lenovo, all of which are available through the FNB App. Some of these offerings are bundled with an FNB Connect SIM, which includes monthly data, airtime, and SMSes. The 24-month plans are less expensive than purchasing theses specified devices in retail stores for cash. By swiping to the Connect Shop, customers can access the Hero Deals in the FNB App Product Shop.

“With over 6 million digitally active customers and billions of digital interactions, we believe FNB Connect provides considerable value for our customers with competitive data and voice packages, access to smart devices at affordable prices and rewards. And all of this is available on our trusted digital platform,” concludes Makanjee.
