Internet users are in for big benefits from Telkom’s latest network upgrade. Within weeks of rolling out substantially expanded data packages, the company today announced that TelkomInternet will increase the speed of its Fastest DSL offering to ‚up to10 Mbps‚ , effective 15 August 2010.
Telkom is enhancing its ADSL network to support ADSL speeds of up to 10Mbps in all areas which have suitable technology at exchanges to support the upgrade.
The10 Mbps ADSL speed is an innovative enhancement to the existing Fastest DSL product, which now allows users to potentially burst at 10 Mbps.
All upgrades therefore remain subject to localised line conditions and the type of equipment available at the nearest exchange.
The upgrade is focussed on 4Mbps users who currently sync at full profile speed. This means that 10 Mbps will initially have a limited footprint, but this footprint will increase as Telkom expands its Metro Ethernet and ADSL2+ presence.
Customers can use an online availability check tool to establish the status of upgrades in their area. The availability checker can be found on the following web pages:
Recently, Telkom announced increases in the allocated blended bandwidth of some of its data packages at no additional cost to customers. The latest speed upgrade will also be at no additional cost to customers.
The increase in allocated blended bandwidth, together with the improvement in speed, will have significant benefits for a wide range of users.
