Johannesburg – Financial services provider FNB will be giving away up to 160GB of data per customer free over the festive season.

The bank’s virtual mobile network, FNB Connect, will "give away millions of gigabytes of data to reward customers who use the bank’s integrated digital and telco ecosystem".

The incentive will run from November 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018.

Dr Christoph Nieuwoudt, CEO of FNB Consumer said: “The festive season offer is a first of its kind in South Africa as no other bank or telco can provide such a customer centric incentive through an integrated digital experience.

"There’s no doubt that FNB customers get maximum value when using FNB Connect, which is incorporated in the bank’s ecosystem.”

The incentive is part of what FNB says is its ongoing focus on customer centricity.

The data rewards are focused on encouraging FNB customers to utilise digital channels and the right banking products.

FNB said that a monthly reward of 1GB will be given to any customer that makes a financial transaction on the FNB App. 

Large data rewards would be given for taking up any of the newly launched FNB ConeXis smartphone deals or taking up qualifying FNB banking products.

Each FNB customer can get up to 160GB of data. 

FNB Connect, which runs atop Cell C’s network as a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), recently bolstered its smartphone line-up with the launch of two new devices in its own stable – the ConeXis X2 and A2.
