The list of Samsung Android devices that are available on the Xtreme Data service includes:[list]
- Samsung Ace Advance
- Samsung Galaxy Y

The handsets will be available from 7 November at Nashua Mobile stores.
The Xtreme Data Premium service is R139 per month and is more suitable for users who go over 400MB monthly and want to make use of additional services such as game & app downloads; and watching videos on YouTube.
Both packages are subject to fair use policies. Download speeds will be decreased if users exceed 100MB on Xtreme Data and 400MB on Xtreme Data Premium. An option to have your data shaped is available.
