They're even subject to regular rate hikes to maximize profits for your service provider, often outpacing the rate of inflation.Knowing that, I try to review my service costs regularly and keep them as low as I can while not depriving myself of what I really need.

Where it gets really interesting – and there’s no news from Cell C on this front – is when you can switch from a regular call to Wi Fi calling midway through a call without noticing.
That’s possible if your network uses Voice over LTE, through which all voice calls are transmitted as data anyway.
During mobile network Cell C‘s announcement earlier today of its financial situation for the first quarter of this year, CEO Jose Dos Santos revealed that the company will soon be rolling out Wi Fi calling.
But what exactly is it, and how will it affect you?
Apple’s i Phone 5c, i Phone 5s, i Phone 6, and i Phone 6 Plus smartphones already support Wi Fi calling on T-Mobile and Sprint in the United States and EE in the United Kingdom, and from August they can add Cell C to that list.
Unlike many news sites, we don’t necessarily proclaim that our reporting will always be unbiased, although we do maintain that most of the time it is.
Wi Fi calling shouldn’t be confused with Voice over IP (Vo IP), at least in common parlance.
For the sake of differentiation, let’s say that Vo IP requires a separate app on your phone – like Skype, Whats App, Facebook Messenger, i Message and so on.
Turns out, it was before its time and they later discontinued it in favour of much slower and cheaper DSL.
