When making use of EUROtel, you’ll be saving on these monthly fees and call charges:
- Rental of telephone number: Note that when using EUROtel from your smartphone, your cellphone number will be your default telephone number (it will show for instance on a recipient's cellphone as per usual). There is no telephone number fee in this case, you only pay for the calls you make, and you'll receive calls to your cellphone as per usual. Quite a few clients do however want to keep their existing landline number, or they wish to order a new landline number from EUROtel. The charge for such numbers is R49/month - either way a massive saving compared to Telkom's line rental of R199/month.
- Call charges versus Telkom and your cellphone provider: Your savings in that regard will amount to 30-50%, depending on where most of your calls go to. Calls to landlines anywhere in South Africa and to the main overseas destinations such as UK, USA, Germany, France and many more cost less than R0.40/min! For R10 you’ll be calling anywhere in South Africa or to overseas destinations for close to half an hour! EUROtel will generally also be far cheaper than incumbent providers when making calls to cellphones.
- Previous calls via Telkom, cellphone providers or less specialised VoIP providers can now all be made via EUROtel. You'll be able to review your call records 'live', and you'll only be billed via a monthly statement end of every month. No pre-payments, no credit card requirements, no misleading call packages.
