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.
Currently Vodacom and Cell C implemented the zero rated URL’s until September 2018 when the arrangement will be reviewed.
The following URL’s 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.
