Deal Listings, the Listing Bar and Comparison Assumptions

Phonefinder lists all South African Network Service Providers cell phone and data contract deals.

Deals are submitted to Phonefinder by the various Service Providers on a monthly basis.

Every deal is standardised for Phonefinder so that it can be neatly represented on the Phonefinder Listing Bar.

All deals are represented in an unbiased manner which makes deals easier to compare.

Comparison Assumptions:

In order to make the comparison easier we had to standardise FREE MINUTES.


"Rand Value Airtime" Vs "Free minutes"


Some Networks create deal offerings with a "Rand Value” of free airtime per month (Talk Value)

e.g.: R100 worth of airtime


Other Networks create deals with free minutes 

e.g.: 100 Free Minutes


This difference makes it complicated for you to compare similar deals

For example, which deal is better?


Network A: offering R100 worth of free airtime

Network B: offering 100 Free Minutes


If Network A charges R1 per minute then you will receive 100 Free Minutes.

The deals are equal.

If Network A charges R2 per minute then you will receive 50 Free Minutes.

Network B is better.

If Network A charges R0.50c per minute then you will receive 200 Free Minutes.

Network A is better.


Phonefinder therefore standardises all offerings by converted all Talk Value into Free Minutes using the applicable Network per minute rate.
