About Us

If you think South Africans didn’t let the whole world know who won the 1995 Rugby World Cup, Let’s Chat. You see, it was in 1994 that Shaw Cellular came into existence and everyone cottoned on to the idea that we should connect more. Through consolidated purchasing of various independent dealer channels, Chatz Connect was finally registered in 2003. Nineteen years later, Chatz Connect is as familiar to South Africans as vetkoek and vellies.


With over 165 stores nationwide, Chatz Connect is SA’s Largest Independent Dealer Channel – exclusive to Vodacom. We offer services that put our competitors in the shade. Our easy-going approach has closely connected us with partners across the country, in turn servicing our customers and communities from Aliwal North to Thohoyandou.


From prepaid services, cash phones, airtime sales and lay byes to contracts, Red premium plans, Fibre and Business deals, we’ve got you covered. Whatever your needs, choose Vodacom as your network provider, and we’ll find the right connectivity solution for you. And if it’s gadgets and accessories you’re after, we’ve got a seriously impressive range.


Bottom line, mobile tech is moving even faster than gen Z knows how to text. So, if you find connectivity even a teeny wit bit overwhelming, let’s chat. Come into any one of our stores and we’d be delighted to unlock your connectivity needs – great and small.
