No more free handset upgrades?

Seems like there is a move to stop handset subsidies.

“ICASA says that since 1994, operators have been offering handset subsidies to contract customers under the pretext of a “free” phone, but that there are no options for a contract period of fewer than 24 months for postpaid subscribers.

The authority is seeking public comment on, among other things, “whether it is necessary to have such long contract terms”.

I called MTN asking when I’m due, mmmm only next year. Could prove to be a problem.
