Nashua Mobile has extended its fixed-cost mobile services Xtreme Data and Xtreme Data Premium to selected Samsung Android handsets in line with its commitment to delivering choice and value to its subscribers.

Users who prefer Android smartphones will now be able to enjoy all the benefits of the mobile Internet for an affordable monthly tariff. The Xtreme Data and Xtreme Data Premium services will be available on the Samsung Ace Advance, Samsung Galaxy Y, Samsung Galaxy Pocket and the Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphones with effect from 7 November. This extends the services beyond selected Nokia Asha and Lumia devices for the first time.

Exclusive to Nashua Mobile, Xtreme Data is one of the few flat-rate data packages available to people who don’t want to use a BlackBerry smartphone. It allows smartphone users to send email, enjoy social media, and do more besides from without worrying about getting high data bills at the end of the month.

At a fixed cost of R59 per month, Xtreme Data offers consumers unlimited access to email, browsing, social networking and instant messaging from their handsets. The Xtreme Data Premium service at R139 per month, allows users to do everything they can do with the original Xtreme Data as well as download apps and games and view YouTube. This option is recommended for users who consume 400MB or more per month. Subscribers who are keen to buy a Samsung Galaxy Note II should look out for some great Xtreme Data Premium deals from Nashua Mobile on the MTN and Vodacom networks.

Xtreme Data and Xtreme Data Premium are both subject to fair usage policies. Customers will experience a decrease in download speeds once they have exceeded a threshold in their data usage for the month -100MB for the Xtreme Data standard service and 400MB in the case of Premium. But users who have their data shaped at this point will be able to keep using their data service for email, social networking or chatting and will only experience a degraded experience when downloading apps or streaming video on YouTube.

Says Mark Taylor, Chief Executive Officer at Nashua Mobile: “Our flat-rate mobile data services have experienced fantastic adoption from Nokia users over the past 8 months since we first introduced them as the country’s first real alternatives to the BlackBerry Internet service. We believe that smartphone users should have the peace of mind of an affordable flat-rate data service whichever handset they choose – so we’re excited to extend Xtreme data to the country’s leading Android handset supplier, Samsung.”

“Now, Android users can also enjoy the full benefit of the mobile Internet without worrying about depleting their data bundle halfway through the end of the month, paying exorbitant out of bundle rates or getting a huge bill at the end of the month,” concludes Taylor.
