FNB customers will soon be able to use its banking app on their smart devices without using up any of their data.
The bank announced today that its customers will have zero rated access to the banking app across all local mobile networks.
“Since launching the app six years ago, not only has it become the most downloaded, but also the popular banking app amongst consumers as recently rated in the SAcsi and Columinate SITEisfaction Index’s 2017,” said FNB Digital spokesperson Giuseppe Virgillito.
“We believe that access to data or airtime should not be a barrier to safe and convenient banking for South Africans. The zero rating of the app is in line with our broader strategy to migrate customers to digital and electronic channels where a number of transactions and services are already offered free of charge,” he added.
This change will go into effect from 1 July this year.
