Yes! It is finally official, no more data struggles to access our site. The site is now absolutely #datafree on all major SA mobile networks!

We know the struggle has been real for many of our Fanz as they struggle with too little data or airtime to read often on our site. The good news is – whether you’re on Cell C, MTN, Vodacom, Telkom or Rain – you can now read our blogs, short stories, essays and poetry for mahala.

For the past few years, we’ve been requesting the mobile networks to zero-rate our platform. With the world in enough problems due to Covid-19, why add to the burden by having to struggle with data to read? We are grateful that the mobile networks have granted our request.

Don’t keep the news to yourself, spread the word to your friends! The more people reading on the better. Let’s make reading the newest trend and make everyday a reading day!

We have hundreds of local stories by young people – just like you and me – writing about everyday topics we can all relate to, and covering all sorts of genres, from drama to romance to crime.

What are you waiting for? Get reading now on!

Oh, and one important thing – if you have no data on your phone, remember to type in our WHOLE address: – this will mean that you don’t need a cent of data to land on our page and read for free!

Tell us: is it working for you? Let us know if you have any trouble getting on data free
