Posted on 27 February 2014

Local emails cost 13 cents each, overseas emails cost 32 cents.


Emails sent and received will be chargeable soon, it has been revealed.

This after news broke that local telcos are charging users for sending messages with WhatsApp.

The price range for charging emails will be pegged competitively to postal services: 13 cents for each email sent to a local address and 32 cents for each email sent to an international address.

Emails containing picture, sound or video files will incur additional charges at 1 cent per 100 bytes.

Telcos are also looking into charging users for each Facebook status update in the near future.
