Telkom today announced the commercial availability of its 20Mbps, 40Mbps and 100Mbps Fibre to the Home (FTTH) offers in selected areas in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Western Cape.

Homes in Groenkloof, Houghton, Eldoraigne, Parktown and Westcliff in Gauteng: Chelmsfordville, Dawncrest, and Winston Park in Kwa-Zulu Natal and Clairmont, Bishops Court and Plattekloof in the Western Cape now have access to superfast broadband over Telkom’s fibre network.

We are excited to deliver the next evolution of super fast broadband connectivity to our customers. Fibre has the potential to transmit information at virtually unlimited speed and capacity allowing for a continuous improvement of our broadband offers,” says Telkom COO, Dr Brian Armstrong.

The reliability and quality of the fibre connection is unrivalled. Telkom’s Fibre to the Home connectivity uses a pure Ethernet connection, eliminating the requirement for intermediate equipment such as modems. This results in a much more stable and reliable service.

Customers in these areas can opt for Telkom’s promotional fibre 24 month offers including a 20Mbps line with 50GB data package for R999 per month: 40Mbps line with 100GB package at R1299 per month and 100MBps line with 200 GB of data for R1799 per month. All three packages include a free WiFi router, a 3GB mailbox, email accounts with five aliases and Unlimited Night Surfer data.

Our value proposition has been designed to meet our customer’s growing appetite for media rich online content, allowing them to seamlessly engage with the most bandwidth hungry applications for a truly connected home experience,” adds Armstrong.

Earlier this year Telkom announced the start of its fibre rollout to over 20 suburbs across South Africa and this rollout will continue until March 2015. Customers in the areas already identified as part of the rollout can register their interest for Telkom’s FTTH offers here and will then be informed as soon as the network is available in their area. Telkom’s ever growing fibre coverage map can be viewed here.

Customers can also use this demand register to indicate demand in areas not currently on Telkom’s current fibre rollout. This information will be used to inform the next phase of Telkom’s fibre infrastructure deployment.

Telkom is gearing up to be as responsive to SA’s growing demand for fibre as possible. We are well positioned, as the most experienced fibre player in the country, to truly deliver on this demand,” concluded Armstrong.
