Vodacom BlackBerry Internet Service cap introduced

22 Sept 2011 Update: Seems that Vodacom has back-tracked on this for now...

Vodacom BlackBerry Internet Service cap introduced « Cellular « MyBroadband Tech and IT News.

Right, so I thought the whole idea of running a mobile communications business was to keep on winning, or in more marketing speak, acquiring customers.

"Uncapped" or unlimited browsing on the Blackberry Internet Service has probably been the single most attractive reason to acquire a Blackberry device in South Africa.

Now perhaps I missed a memo somewhere sometime, but this will most probably end up hurting Vodacom more in the long run. Are they killing the goose that laid the golden eggs, or are they inviting their competitors to come and poach it?
