Zero-rated mobile data access to specific UCT online resources
Some mobile service providers have made the decision to zero-rate access to specific university online content. This allows UCT students on these networks to access their course materials online at no cost through their cellular data connection. No special SIM card or configuration is required. When accessing these specific URL’s there will be no charge or deduction of your data.
Vodacom, MTN and Cell C have implemented the zero-rated URLs until September 2018. Thereafter, the arrangement will be reviewed.
The following URLs are zero-rated:
- http://adfs.uct.ac.za – used for authentication
Any internet access to non-university sites (or to university sites other than those listed above) will still incur a data cost.
